Orthoses & orthopaedic devices

As the feet are the foundation of the body, imbalances in the feet can underlie many other painful conditions in the legs, pelvis and spine. Orthoses are orthopaedic devices designed to treat or adjust these various biomechanical anomalies. If orthoses are indicated your podiatrist will capture the profile of each foot with a 3D optical scanner and use this information to make the orthoses. The laboratory we use to make the orthoses is an exclusive podiatry lab. A pair of orthoses is usually ready in about 10 days.

Our podiatrist generally prefers to use flexible orthoses made from a combination of thin, durable plastic and rubber as opposed to rigid devices. A common concern with orthoses is what type of shoes will fit an orthotic. Footwear choices for orthotic wearers have improved significantly over the years and we promise you are not condemned to wearing ugly shoes.
