Custom orthotics can limit abnormal motions, provide pressure relief, and support structural weaknesses.
Abnormal foot motion can result in low back, knee, or hip pain. Custom orthotics (shoe inserts created from plaster molds of your feet) can limit these abnormal motions, provide pressure relief, help support the body, and get you back to being your best self.
During assessment, the body is scanned for abnormal motion while walking in un-weighted positions, while static alignment of the pelvis, legs, and feet are also examined. Once an IRG therapist finishes the assessment and molds are completed, custom orthotics are made to meet the patient’s individual needs.
Orthotics are often used in the treatment of:
- Anterior knee pain (patello-femoral joint syndrome)
- Illiotibial band syndrome
- Hip tendinitis/bursitis
- Low-back pain
