Custom Orthotics  


Custom orthotic foot braces are corrective devices made to assist a foot that fails biomechanically, to function normally.  This is achieved by first obtaining a neutral position plaster foot mold.  The custom orthotics are made at our Professional Pedorthic Lab from specially selected thermoplastics that are heat molded to fit the subject's corrected positive plaster cast.  The orthotics are made to control abnormal foot function, re-establish proper weight distribution and overall biomechanics by not allowing the foot to fall out of subtalar neutral position during gait.  Improper foot function and weight distribution of the lower extremities is often the cause of many foot, lower leg, pelvic, back and neck overuse or stress injuries.  The proper use of these corrective devices should significantly reduce a patient's symptoms.

Some of the more common conditions or symptoms that custom orthotics are prescribed:
 

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Shin Splints
  • Patellar Femoral Syndrome
  • Leg Length Discrepancies
  • Heel Spurs
  • Bunions
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Intrinsic Foot Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Our Orthotics

     With our state-of-the-art materials we have the unique ability to manufacture a custom orthotic to fit nearly any shoe or boot application, including skates.


     
     

    All our devices are "Semi Flexible" in order to reduce excessive or abnormal foot deformity in motion while still allowing the foot to function properly.  This allows for optimum correction with maximum compliance.  Unlike that of a ridged device a semi flexible orthotic will allow for better shock absorption and therefore less chance of reflex injuries up the leg and hip
    .
     

    We have a variety of thicknesses to accommodate all sizes and activities of people.  Due to the thinness of our new materials we have the ability to add modifications to the orthotic without compromising shoe fit.
