Come see our specially trained Doctor of Physical Therapy for an orthotic assessment. The position of the foot is an important part of a physical therapy examination of the lower extremity. Improper foot positioning can cause:
- Foot pain
- Heel pain (plantar fasciitis or achilles tendinitis)
- Ankle pain
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Low back pain
Correcting your foot position with an orthotic is an effective way of reducing pain and improving gait mechanics. Orthotics can be customized to fit your unique foot. The goal is to attain a more neutral position during weight-bearing and walking activities.
