What Makes Us Different?
You make us different. Your goals are our goals and your success is our success. We have been changing lives since 1979 with orthotics and other technologies, and our family-style approach to serving this profession means that you are one of us, and we will not quit until you are satisfied. We use the best technologies available to customize an orthotic to your body and design it to give you the confidence to change the world.
Orthopedics and Orthotics are being used interchangeably, however there are some differences. Orthopedic devices are designed to prevent or manage musculoskeletal problems, while Orthotics are designed to support or straighten weak joints or limbs.
Together, Orthopedic and Orthotic devices can treat a wide range of diagnosis, including, but not limited to:
- Plantar Fasciitis – Heel Pain
- Flat Feet – Fallen Arches
- Bunions – Hallux Valgus
- Heel Spurs
- Cranial Deformities
- Post Polio
- Charcot deformity
- Joint instabilities
- Foot drop
- Those recovering from foot and/or ankle surgery
What is an orthosis?
Orthosis is the term for an externally applied device that is designed and fitted to the body to achieve one or more of the following goals: supports, aligns, prevents, protects or corrects deformities or improves function for a section of the body
How long does it take to get my orthosis?
Unfortunately this is never an easy question, nor as straightforward to answer as everybody is different. Our staff will be able to give you a better idea after your initial appointment.
What if my orthosis is uncomfortable?
Some factors that would cause an orthosis to be uncomfortable may include orthotics that are slightly too long, not properly fitted, incorrectly designed or are worn out. The best way to know if an adjustment is needed is the duration of your discomfort.
How do I keep my orthosis clean?
Periodically, you should clean orthotics and inserts with mild soap or detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Let them air dry thoroughly, usually overnight, before placing them back into your shoes.
How long do I wear my orthosis?
Orthotics can last from 1-4 years. They can last longer depending on your body weight and activity level. Custom orthotics can typically be “refurbished”, so DO NOT throw them away.
