Duplicating Your Orthotics:
If your orthotics are wearing out, or you just want another pair, we can duplicate them.
|At heel contact, orthoses limit the swing of your heel so your heel strikes the ground correctly.
||During midstance, your orthoses support your foot so it can ragain its arch, allowing the ankle and heel to align.
Cost-Saving Tip: Since orthotics are medical devices, they are tax deductible — but only with a receipt from a board certified podiatrist, which we will provide. Our receipt will also contain information you can submit to your health insurance company (some policies will reimburse you for custom-made orthotics).
WHY YOU MAY NEED ORTHOTIC SUPPORT
Our Board-Certified Podiatrists have successfully treated thousands of patients with custom-made orthotics since 1971.
As you walk your heel swings from side to side very slightly, like the pendulum on a clock. If, however, your heel swings too far when you walk or run, your foot may be overpronating, or flattening too much. This incorrect movement stresses and weakens parts of your foot. Over time, you may develop symptoms in your feet ranging from a change in shape to pain when you walk.
Custom-made orthotics are medical devices that support and gently reposition the heel, arch, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones in the feet, enabling these structures to work together as nature intended, to make each step you take pain-free. Unlike shoe inserts bought over the counter, however, custom-made orthotics are built from molds of your feet to meet your unique needs. They're typically made with comfortable thermoplastic materials, which are guaranteed to last for years, and can be designed to fit in dress shoes, athletic shoes, boots, and skates.
Custom-made orthotics can relieve many different types of foot pain including heel pain and plantar fasciitis; arch pain; pain caused by running, walking, and other athletics; pain related to diabetes; pain experienced by senior citizens; and many other kinds of foot pain related to bunions, trauma, sprains, and other disorders.
Having custom orthotics made for you has never been so simple — or more affordable!
