One of our most successful treatments is our custom-made orthotics. If you have foot pain, heel pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, or back pain...you are in luck! Our orthotics are designed to help you get rid of your lower extremity pain!
What are Orthotics?
Orthotics (also known as orthoses) are custom foot supports designed to your foot. These supports are made from engineered plastics which have "memory". No matter what abuse you put them through, the orthotic will bounce back into its original form. We are so confident in this, that we offer a lifetime warranty on the plastic shell! Since, they are made from a mold of your feet, compared to the standard, one-size-fits-all products found at stores, we insure comfort from our devices. They are made in a variety of styles to accommodate sneakers, dress shoes, athletic cleats, skis, or any other shoes. They are designed to help treat YOUR specific medical condition.

How Do Orthotics Help?
Your feet are designed to support and balance your entire body, but sometimes they need help. Everytime you walk, run, or jump, you are exerting a large amount of force on your feet. It is a small structure which needs to support, at times, 5X your body weight. Over time, this force takes a toll on your feet by irritating weaker foot structures.
WE ARE ALL BORN WITH SOMETHING "SLIGHTLY OFF"! Some might have one leg that's slightly longer than the other; some might have an arch that's a little low, or a little high. Some might have toes that aren't completely straight. Where as "slightly off" is normal, it is the degree to which something is "off" that will cause you pain. This can impair foot function which can result in abnormal rotation of the legs, and even affect the knees, hips, or back.
When you wear a pair of our custom-made orthotics, they don't simply support the arch and cushion your heels. Orthotics prevent your feet from sitting in an abnormal and dangerous position, while providing you with comfort. They prevent overpronation (flattening of the arch) as well as absorb shock while running and walking. This support makes the foot more stable and minimizes the potential for overuse injuries.
In addition, our custom-made orthotics help to prevent further injuries such as ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, and tendonitis by controlling the motion of the foot.
