Supporting Your Feet With Orthotics

Posted by

Did you know that each of your feet is made up of 26 bones, held together by over 33 joints, and contain over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? Beyond the sheer number of structures in the feet, every step involves all of these parts operating in perfect harmony. For these reasons, even the smallest injury or structural flaw can cause discomfort and interfere with your daily activities.

Specializing in the treatment of issues affected the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg, our office is well equipped to address the discomfort and dysfunction associated with faulty foot mechanics. We offer a comprehensive range of foot care services and provide state-of-the-art care to patients of all ages. Our office maintains a position at the forefront of the latest advances in podiatry to provide treatment that alleviates the symptoms of painful foot conditions and injuries as well as address the many problems associated with improper foot mechanics and consequences that systemic medical conditions have foot health.

If you or a member of your family is suffering from foot discomfort, it is a good idea to contact our office for a thorough evaluation and treatment. To address the needs of certain foot disorders and dysfunction, we sometimes prescribe custom orthotics. Designed to promote the proper alignment of the structures in your feet as well as offer additional cushioning and support when needed, our orthotic inserts are custom fabricated to the exact specifications of your case. With custom orthotics, we can help to alleviate foot pain while improving function, restoring balance, and reducing any associated knee, hip, and back discomfort.

Remember, whether it’s a question of improving foot support, preventing a foot deformity from getting worse, a gait issue, reducing discomfort, or any other issue affecting the health and function of your feet, our office can help.
