Custom Foot Orthotics
Personalized Bio-mechanical Correction
What are Custom Made Orthotics?
Custom orthotic foot braces are corrective devices made to assist a foot that fails biomechanically, to function normally. The orthotics are made to control abnormal foot function, re-establish proper weight distribution and improve overall biomechanics.
How are Custom Made Foot Orthotics manufactured?
Following an evaluation, a neutral position foot mold is taken and sent to our Lab where a positive cast is produced. Modifications will be incorporated to meet the patient’s needs.
Are custom orthotics only for people with foot problems?
Many clinical conditions may be present without any obvious foot problems. Subtle imbalances in the foot are amplified as they go up the leg, knee, hip and back resulting in problems that may not have been properly assessed due to lack of a full biomechanical evaluation.
How long do they last?
With everyday use under normal conditions you should get between 2-3 years of correction from your Custom Orthotics. Orthotic type, age, weight and activity of the patient will play an important role in this issue. Your orthotics should be checked regularly with your practitioner.
Will they get rid of my pain and discomfort?
The proper use of these corrective devices should significantly reduce a patient’s symptoms or foot related pain and discomfort.
