Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical foot disorders. The best orthotics are custom tailored devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of a particular individual.
Total Rehab has partnered with The Orthotic Group, leaders in the industry. We provide a gait analysis using a foot pressure mapping system that provides us with a very clear picture of foot mechanics, pressure and timing sequences of each step. It is with this information that we are able to provide custom-made prescription orthotics that best fit the individual’s biomechanical and lifestyle needs.
Who Should Use Orthotics?
There are several common symptoms that may indicate misalignment of the feet. You may be a candidate for orthotics if:
- one side of the sole of your shoe wears out faster than the other;
- you frequently sprain your ankle;
- you have chronic heel, knee or lower back pain;
- your shins hurt;
- your toes are not straight;
- your feet point inward or excessively outward when you walk, or
- your feet hurt in general
Your feet should not hurt. Pain is the body’s way of warning you something is wrong. If you ignore your pain, the condition causing it could become worse. Relief is closer than you think.
