Custom orthotics are used to correct specific foot imbalances. Orthotics work on feet similarly to the way braces work on teeth – by exerting gentle, consistent pressure to bring foot muscles and bones back into alignment.
Your feet support your entire body weight, so the slightest misalignment of muscles or bones can easily cause a variety of problems. Our office uses a digital gait scanner that will analyze your pressure and weight distribution to determine if custom orthotics can help you.
Conditions that may respond well to custom orthotics:
- Foot pain
- High arches
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splits
- Knee pain
- Low back pain
Most extended health benefit plans cover custom orthotics. Before booking your orthotic appointment, please check the specifics of your benefit plan.
