Orthotics are designed to maintain a healthy foot position so that the foot can function properly. Orthotics improve shock absorption which helps prevent injuries throughout the body and then correct mal-alignment issues which interfere with optimum performance.
At California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy, you will be thoroughly assessed by one of our licensed physical therapists who have advanced training in bio-mechanical evaluation. A bio-mechanical evaluation consists of a static and dynamic assessment of your spine, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Your physical therapist will correlate the findings of this assessment with the demands of your lifestyle and shoe wear to help decide if a custom orthotic is recommended.
Do you have…
- persistent heel or foot problems?
- hip or back pain?
- recurrent problems that exercise doesn’t help?
- lower leg pain with weight bearing exercises such as running?
- neck pain or headaches with movement?
If you answered yes, to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for Custom Orthotics.
