Custom orthotics and Compression stockings
An Orthotic is an orthopedic device that’s custom-made specifically for you, from an impression of your foot.
Worn comfortably in most kinds of shoes, prescription orthotics are used to treat lower back pain, forefoot pain, leg fatigue, arch pain, heel pain, callouses, hip pain, corns, and much more. Orthotics are designed to precisely control the mechanics of your feet and correct your foot function. You might say orthotics are to feet what braces are to your teeth.
Clinical studies have shown that prescription orthotics relieve pain by correcting poor alignment and promoting proper foot function. Wearing orthotics regularly will gently correct foot abnormalities, realign and stabilize the bones in your feet, and gradually restore a healthier walking pattern.
Feet are like fingerprints; no two are alike. That’s why a precise prescription for every patient leads to the most effective results. Unlike off-the-shelf arch supports, which do not control biomechanics when walking, custom orthotics improve foot function with every step.
Custom orthotics are covered by many extended health plans.
Compression stockings are a specialized hosiery, designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of venous disorders such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Compression stockings are elastic garments worn around the leg, compressing the limb, exerting pressure against the legs, reducing the diameter of distended veins, and causing an increase in venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy helps decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis and impairments of venous walls, and relieves heavy and aching legs.
