When the Foot Hits the Ground
Our physical therapists have years of experience providing custom-fit foot orthotics. These shoe inserts enable the muscles, tendons and bones of the feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. Some people have struggled for years with pain, not knowing their problem could be helped with foot orthotics. When appropriately prescribed, orthotics can:
- decrease pain in the foot and/or in other parts of the body (knee, hip, back)
- increase joint stability
- minimize progressive foot deformity
- lessen pain with walking, running or other exercise
After a thorough evaluation, we custom-mold your feet and send the molds to an outside laboratory. The lab uses our prescription to build your shoe inserts, carefully custom-crafting the orthotics for your specific needs.
We are happy to consult with patients who have had limited results from other orthotics, including those from retail stores. Insurance coverage for orthotics varies. We will work with you to explore your insurance benefits, your need for a referral and out-of-pocket costs.
