The Right Orthotic Solution & Best Value For You

Many painful conditions in the foot and lower leg can be relieved or prevented by wearing orthotics as they reduce the stress on overloaded tissues.
Before prescribing orthotics your podiatrist will perform a comprehensive assessment of foot posture and video gait analysis of walking. From this assessment, the podiatrist will determine if an orthotic will benefit you and if so what type of orthotic is the most suitable. Foot- type, age, activities, costs, and footwear will all be considered when choosing and orthotic type.
Your podiatrist can prescribe various prefabricated orthosis and custom foot orthosis.
