CUSTOM MADE FOOT ORTHOTICS/AFO (ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES)

Custom Made Foot OrthoticsAnyone who has ever had to spend several hours on their feet knows that structural anomalies and injuries can have a significant negative impact on their comfort, ability to get around, and quality of life. Many medical conditions and injuries can be exacerbated by poor posture or issues with spine stabilization and musculoskeletal alignment.
Custom foot orthotics provide a simple solution to correcting these issues.

These fully customized inserts are worn inside the shoe in order to correct and control congenital or acquired conditions associated with the misalignment of the foot. By aligning the feet properly, orthotics help to align the entire musculoskeletal system to improve the condition of the ankles, hips, knees, and back.
Made from a plaster cast of the patient’s own foot, these inserts are specially made to correct weight distribution and provide proper support to the arch of the foot. This is not the same as off-the-shelf inserts which, while they may provide some support and pain relief, are not customized to your unique needs and structural anomalies. In fact, these off-the-shelf inserts may do more harm than good in some cases.

Fully custom foot orthotics are created by certified specialists who assesses the mechanics of your foot, how you walk, and the anatomy and biomechanics of your lower limbs and feet. This provides them with the information they need to create your custom orthotics as well as make treatment recommendations.

Using foot orthotics we can treat:

  • Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
  • Shin splints
  • Bunion pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Lower back, knee, and/or ankle pain
  • Hammer/claw toes
  • Flat feet or adult acquired flat feet
  • High arches
  • Discrepancy in length of legs

Any adult or child with foot, knee, ankle, or back pain can benefit from the use of foot orthotics. Signs that you may need custom orthotics include abnormal shoe wear, frequent ankle sprains, shin splits, gait abnormalities, general foot pain, chronic heel pain, flat feet, and bunions.
