Orthotics
 

Orthotic devices are custom made arch supports that allow for a more normal walking cycle.  The normal person undergoes a characteristic cycle during normal walking.  A variation to the cycle can cause foot, leg or back pain.  Orthotics try to control and foot and recreate the normal gait cycle.

 

A biomechanical exam is performed in the office to evaluate foot and gait deformities.  A plaster mold is then fabricated to allow a plaster model of the foot to be formed by the orthotic company.  The plaster mold is then used to thermoplastically form a custom insole out of a number of different materials.

 

While graphite and polyproprylene are most commonly used, many other materials can be incorporated into an othotic device.  Some patients require more flexibility while others more control.  It is our job to come up with the right solution for the patient.

 

"ALL ORTHOTICS WERE NOT CREATED EQUAL"

Orthotics can be used for all ages and all types of feet.  Children's intoeing and out-toeing can be corrected using heel stabilizers.  High arch (pes cavus) and flat feet (pes panus) are also addressed by these simple devices.

 

Common conditions such as heel spurs and bunions can be accommodated by orthotics.  Simply changing the way the foot functions can eliminate a host of foot pain.
