Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical disorders. Custom orthotics are specifically designed for each inidividual in order to meet their unique demand. An orthotics assessment includes a detailed gait analysis,  orthopedic examination, and  functional testing. All of this information is used to determine if orthotics are right for you, and if so, the information will be used to create custom and unique devices that will fir your lifestyle needs.  

Orthotics are effective for many disorders, some of which include:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Leg-Length Inequalities
  • Sports Injuries
  • Knee Pain (including Patellofemural Pain, Iliotibial Band Syndrome)
  • Shin Splints
  • Ankle & Foot Pain (including plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, heel spurs, bunions)
