Custom Orthotics and Bracing
Why Use Custom Orthotics?
Custom orthotics have been shown to correct malalignment of the bones and improve the strength and flexibility of the tendons. Custom-made orthotics help hold the adjustments and position the foot for optimal healing, and can help improve heel pain, achilles pain, ankle pain, arch pain, and many other ailments.
Why Choose Custom Orthotics Instead of Over-the-Counter Inserts?
Over-the-counter orthotics may initially cost less, but they don’t address your unique feet, body, or health needs. These inserts are incapable of addressing left-right foot imbalance or over-pronation. When all is said and done, over-the-counter orthotic inserts can aggravate your symptoms and may even cause new problems throughout the body.
Also, keep in mind that there are many stores claiming to make custom-fitted orthotic devices. Actually, our orthotics are really “Functional Custom-Fitted Orthotics”. Our employees do not evaluate our patients using a corporate sales manual: Our Doctors prescribe them after careful diagnostic and bio-mechanical evaluation. The devices we make for our patients and professional athletes are based on years of study of body biomechanics that began in Podiatric Medical School, our residency training and clinical experience. Do not be fooled by storefronts with “Whammy Machines”, high expenses and undereducated employees. We handle their failures.
Here at Bayshore Podiatry, we use state-of-the-art 3D scanner to digitally apply plaster and we also use Tom Cat technology to obtain an impression of your foot. Using 3D imaging and foot contouring, we are able to get an exact impression of your foot from which your custom orthotics are made. We can also mold impressions with plaster.
Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs of feet are alike. By creating Functional Custom Fitted Orthotic Devices from an exact impression of your foot and applying biomechanical expertise we can correct your issues rather than cushioning and padding your foot. Orthotic devices are the best of both worlds, providing both cushioning and proper structural support. They will change your feet forever!
