Custom Foot Orthotics – A Bio-Engineered Ergonomic Solution. These orthotics are semi-rigid so there is a little flex in them unlike the orthotics in years past that were uncomfortable and had no shock absorption.
Foot orthotics are custom made shoe inserts that are proven to eliminate pain and discomfort. Orthotics are designed to control foot function by treating imbalances and modifying areas of weight-bearing on the foot.
We scan your feet in a “STATIC” (standing) weight bearing position and “DYNAMICALLY” (walking). This is the only way you can truly get a complete picture as to what is really going on with the biomechanics of your feet!
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. And they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.
The foot is constructed with three arches which, when properly maintained, give exceptional supportive strength. These three arches form a supporting vault that distributes the weight of the entire body. If there is compromise of one arch in the foot, the other arches must compensate and are subject to additional stresses, which usually leads to further compromise.
Orthotics allow the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones of the feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. When appropriately prescribed, orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of the body such as the knees, hips and back. They can also improve the overall biomechanical function of the feet and lower extremities.
Orthotics can be quite effective in treating patients with Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Knee Pain, Metatarsalgia, Heel Pain/Bone Spurs, Hip Pain, Low Back Pain, Neuromas, Diabetic Foot Problems, Flat Feet, Hammer Toes and Foot Fatigue.
By stabilizing and balancing your feet, orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness.
We use 3DO a.k.a. Digital Orthotics in our practice, because after . I wear them every day to keep me aligned and protected against problems I have had in the past with shin splints, sesmoiditis, patellar tendonitis, and right arch/plantar fasciitis pain. After 20+ years of wearing and recommending orthotics to patients I have found them to be the best bar none! See why you should be wearing them too below…
