Total Care Health Orthotics
Orthotics are medical appliances, custom or prefabricated, that look like insoles for your shoes. In fact, they are highly sophisticated things that are designed to align your foot and/or ankle properly in order to reduce pain and or improve your walking or running.
Certified Orthotists are specially trained professionals who can assess if you need an orthotic, and if so, what kind. They use state-of-the-art equipment to measure and gauge how you stand, walk, bear weight, and how or why you may be in pain.
We have orthotists on staff to help our clients. Sometimes one of the other medical professionals in the office may refer you to our orthotist, or you may schedule your own appointment if you think you might benefit from one. We use the ultra-modern, ArchitechTM system for digital casting and can show you detailed 3D models of what you may need in an orthotic and why you need it.
Who Needs an Orthotic?
You may need an orthotic if any of the following examples applies to you. This is not a complete list, but rather just a few examples:
- Foot or ankle malformation
- Foot or ankle surgery
- Foot or ankle injury
- Sports Injury to the foot or ankle
Orthotic appliances should be assessed by and fitted by a professional. If you would like to talk to us about orthotics or think you may need one, please feel free to contact us at any time.
