Foot orthotics and shoe modifications ease pain in the foot that can affect the ankle, knee, hip and lower back.
A certified Pedorthist is a specialist trained in the assessment, design, manufacture, and modification of foot orthotics and footwear.
Custom Foot Orthotics
The purpose of foot orthotics is to alleviate pain in the body that originates from the foot. Foot pain can have effects on the ankle, knee, hip and lower back.
Our certified Pedorthist can evaluate the cause of your pain by performing an extensive history and physical examination to your foot, ankle, knee and hip as well as watching you walk. The correct orthotic device will then be designed specifically for you and the types of shoes that you wear. After dispensing your orthotics we have a comprehensive follow up program to ensure that the device is doing the job that it was designed to do.
