Many biomechanical disorders can be treated with orthotics. Orthotics are custom-molded inserts that improve foot function. If you are experiencing foot pain, aching, deformities, cramping or even ankle, knee or back problems, orthotics may help by realigning the foot to take off stress.
The doctor will take X-rays to determine what problems you are having and what type of support you need. The doctor will then take a plaster cast of your foot to get an impression that will be sent to the lab where the orthotics are made. It usually takes about three weeks for the orthotics to come back. Once we receive them and payment, we will notify you so we can set up a quick appointment to dispense the orthotics. At that time, we will give detailed instructions and, of course, if you have any questions once you get home, feel free to call us.
