Orthotics can be used as part of treatment or as a preventative measure for a variety of conditions including:
– PLANTAR FASCIITIS & HELL SPURS- SHIN SPLINTS
– METATARSALGIA (mid-foot pain)
– PATELLOFEMORLA PAIN (knee pain)
– IT BAND SYNDROME (runner’s knee)
– DIABETIC FEET
Your doctor can best answer your questions as to whether orthotics may be beneficial to you. In many cases, orthotics help alleviate contributing factors to the condition, while specific treatment for the problem is given as well. Many individuals whose occupational demands require long durations of standing (ie. teachers, waiters, etc. ) or athletes who repetitively place high demands on loads on their joints may also benefit from orthotics.
