Are orthotics for you?

Are orthotics for you?

Have over-the-counter inserts not provided the foot, knee, and back pain relief that you had hoped for? If not, medically prescribed and individually molded orthotics may be the answer.

Orthotics not only can minimize pain but they can also help address other medical conditions and foot deformities such as diabetes, bursitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, hammertoes, flat feet, high arches, bunions, heel spurs and more.

Orthotics are fabricated following a comprehensive exam and are designed to align your foot/ankle in the most anatomical and efficient position. Correct alignment leads to reduced stress, compensatory movements, and pain up the kinetic chain.

Orthotics are not just for flat feet. Many people can benefit from the use of appropriately prescribed and fit orthotics. Your persistent foot, ankle, knee, hip or back pain might be coming from your feet. Our body responds to forces from the ground up in a chain reaction. Starting at your feet may be piece of the missing puzzle if you’ve been struggling with pain that doesn’t seem to go away with other treatment interventions.

If you are interested in seeing if orthotics may be appropriate for your pain, Todd Jensen, Certified Prosthetist and Brodie Rice, Certified Prosthetist / Orthotist can perform a skilled evaluation of gait and foot mechanics and prescribe the appropriate device for you.
