We offer evaluation, treatment and either laboratory or in-house fabrication of custom foot orthotics for all ages. Our physical therapists have undergone specialized training and years of experience in gait biomechanics to evaluate the need for custom orthotics and fit the right orthotic to meet the specific needs of each patient.
What are Custom Orthotics?
An orthotic is a custom-made insole designed to support and control the motions of your foot. Through control of the foot, the orthotic device can also affect the knee, hip, pelvis and back. The orthotic is made from a variety of materials based on the needs of the patient. A more firm device will provide control and support while a softer device will give shock absorption and comfort.
An orthotic device with specific components will be matched to meet your needs taking into account diagnosis, age, and activity level. If an orthotic is not necessary, you may receive counseling regarding your footwear, or the use of an over the counter insole.
