Orthotics

Orthotics can be very helpful in correcting biomechanical imbalances of the foot and ankle, such as excessive pronation or excessive supination. Over time, abnormal foot motions cause stresses that can lead to conditions such as Achilles tendinitis, bunions, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis (heel and arch pain), post-tib tendinitis, shin splints.



They are also useful for people: who are very overweight; required to be on their feet for extended periods of time; or have a leg length discrepancy. Athletes use them to optimize performance and enhance comfort, and people with arthritic or diabetic foot conditions use them for comfort and protection.

Orthotics can help prevent injury or deformity from occurring or halt the progression of existing problems, allowing healing to occur. However, even if no major conditions or symptoms exist, orthotics can provide protection and comfort for your feet, promoting good foot care.
