Orthotics/Shoe Inserts

Custom made foot orthotics are prescribed for many biomechanical foot disorders such as high arches, low arches (flat feet), bunions, and hammer toes.

Heel spurs, plantar fasciitis (plantar cacaneal enthesopathy), Morton’s neuroma, metatarsalgia, joint pain, knee, hip and back pain often times will respond favorably to plaster casted, custom made foot orthotics.

Assessment

Although medical assessment including a comprehensive biomechanical examination results in an individual orthotic prescription. A non-weight bearing, sub-talar neutral plaster-of-paris cast is then taken of the patient’s feet. The cast and prescription are sent to a PFOLA accredited orthotic laboratory.

To qualify for reimbursement, many health care plans demand proof of a full biomechanical assessment, plaster cast and prescriber credentials.
