Your body is an interconnected system of specialized parts, and the support structure which holds everything together is made up of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Even if your feet don’t hurt, they may be contributing to your overall postural balance.
If you’re having pain or discomfort in a specific area of your body— anywhere from your feet to your neck—custom-made orthotics may help bring you long-term relief.
The foot is a very complex region to assess and treat. It can be the primary issue causing pain elsewhere in the body or a secondary issue from knee, hip or low back issues.
Our analysis of human biomechanics begins with a thorough study of modern physics of the lower kinetic chain (i.e. feet, ankles, knees, hips and back) and concludes with a realistic footwear-based approach to biomechanical correction.
- Custom orthotics are often prescribed to treat:
- Plantar Fasciitis ( Foot and/or heel pain)
- Ankle pain
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Improve performance and decrease incidence of non-contact ACL injury
- Custom orthotics or footbeds can be specifically made to improve performance for:
- Unique just like you
Custom orthotics will address structural problems and the evaluation will uncover muscular imbalances contributing to the problem. These imbalances will be addressed by specific stretches to lengthen the over active muscles and exercises designed to activate the dormant muscles.
