Custom Foot Orthotics
A custom foot orthotic is a custom-made three-dimensional insert that is placed in your shoe to help the pain and discomfort caused by lower limb injuries.
Orthotics work by decreasing high-pressure areas, stabilizing foot alignment and/or cushioning the foot. Orthotics will not permanently change your anatomy and will function only when you are standing or walking on them.
Orthotics commonly used to relieve symptoms of common injuries, such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, neuromas, low back and hip pain, knee pain, and various foot and ankle tendon injuries, as well as helping individuals with diabetes or arthritis.
Compression therapy is the application of a medical gradient elastic garment around the leg. By compressing the limb with graduated compression that is strong at the ankle and weaker as it travels up the leg, medical gradient compression stockings help venous return, decrease venous pressure, prevent venous stasis and deterioration of the venous walls, and effectively relieve aching and heavy legs.
Depending on the condition and individual circumstances of the patient, medical compression therapy can be applied in different forms including socks, stockings, pantyhose or bandages. Compression stockings are often used to treat:
Blood vessel malformations
Chronic venous diseases
