Custom Orthotics and Orthopedic Braces
Custom-made orthotics that correct an abnormal or irregular, walking pattern. Sometimes called arch supports, orthotics allow people to stand, walk, and run more efficiently and comfortably. Over-the-counter orthotics although easily accessible cannot correct the wide range of symptoms that prescription foot orthoses can since they are not custom made to fit an individual’s unique foot structure. A properly fitted orthotic will control the amount of pressure and stress that your foot goes through.
Your orthotic assessment and casting appointment will ensure that your custom inserts or shoes are made to exactly to support your needs and can end up doing more damage than good. Orthotic devices come in many shapes, sizes, and materials and fall into three main categories: those designed to change foot function, those that are primarily protective in nature, and those that combine functional control and protection.
Conditions relieved by orthotics:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Heel spurs
- Knee problems
- Lower back pain
- Hip pain
Custom fit orthopedic braces (knee, neck, wrist, back, ankle, etc) is tailored to you and provides maximal support and protection. Proper bracing can aid you in injury recovery, allow you to return to activities that may put those joints in a stressed position with added support, while decreasing pain and swelling.
