ORTHOTICS Featured

Solution for many ailments Solution for many ailments

 

Even if your feet don’t hurt, they may be contributing to overall postural imbalance. If pain or discomfort occurs in a specific area of the body – anywhere from the feet to your neck – individually designed functional orthotics may help bring long-term relief.

 

Heel Spur Pain

A heel spur is an overgrowth of bone that resembles a hook on the bottom of the foot. It is a reaction to stress placed on the thick connective tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) that helps maintain the arches of the foot. A heel spur is often accompanied by a bursitis that is a major contributor to pain.


Orthotics For Plantar FasciitisR

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick connective tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) that helps maintain the arches of the foot. The inflammation is due to tearing of the tissue. It is often a precursor to a heel spur. The soles of the feet are very painful, especially in the early morning. The condition tends to be chronic and difficult to heal without proper foot support.


Diabetic Orthotics

Diabetics must take special care of their feet. Diabetes damages blood vessels, which results in poor circulation, nerve damage and slow healing. These changes are termed peripheral neuropathy. This combination of factors can cause significant health problems for diabetic patients.
