During a visit with our Pedorthists, we will conduct a comprehensive range of motion and video gait assessment, as well as electronically record your gait (a person’s manner of walking) to illustrate our findings to you. We will develop a treatment plan based on your needs and lifestyle requirements.
Both customized and custom-made orthotics enable the feet to be supported in a more stable position in order to help correct imbalances and reduce stress and strain on the rest of your body. Over time, the use of orthotics may give you relief from both pain and fatigue – so you can once again enjoy your favorite activities.
A Brace is a rigid and semi-rigid device which is used for the purpose of supporting a weak or deformed body member or restricting or eliminating motion in a disease or injured part of the body. We will work with you to determine what type of brace is required based on our assessment and your physician’s diagnosis.
Footwear modifications are adaptations made to a shoe(s) to improve foot function and/or
accommodate specific pathologies. Although footwear has come a long way in terms of offering
orthopedic or therapeutic features without affecting style, sometimes the shoe may need to be
modified to be accommodating to your lifestyle.
