Does pain hold you back from doing the things you love? We invite you to have your feet examined to see if they are part of the problem. Your feet are your foundation, so if they are not functioning at their best, it can cause pain. Custom orthotics are medical devices made to align the foot and ankle. They assist in correcting foot abnormalities and imbalances. Custom orthotics can help treat:
- Back, hip, knee pain
- Ankle and foot pain
- Plantar fasciitis and heel pain
- Morton’s neuroma
- Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis pain
- Shin splints
- Flat feet or high arches
- Leg length differences
- Bunions and hammer toes
- and more…..
At First Ave Foot Clinc, our Chiropodists are trained to examine how your feet are functioning. This examination will determine if you are a good candidate for custom orthotics. If you are a candidate, a plaster of Paris casting will be done to capture a 3D image of your feet. This casting will be used to create a custom orthotic for your specific needs.
Do you have orthotics, but have trouble fitting them into your shoes? We can help! We can make orthotics for dress shoes, golf shoes, cleats, skates, even sandals. Custom orthotics don’t have to be big and clunky.
Don’t forget the little ones. Help prevent foot problems by starting orthotic therapy early (age 4-5). If you think your child needs orthotics, book an appointment and have their feet assessed.
Do you wear a hard plastic ankle foot orthotic and want to try something new? First Ave Foot Clinic can make you a custom light weight, comfortable brace (AFO) that fits easily into shoes.
Buyer beware. All custom orthotics are not created equal. Do your research and ask questions about how the orthotics are manufactured.
