Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical foot and lower limb disorders. The best orthotics are custom tailored devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of a particular individual.
Orthotics can be used to help individuals with the following conditions:
- Lower back pain
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Osteoarthritis in the lower extremities
- Iliotibial Band Irritation
- Chronic Ankle sprains/instability
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- And many more….
We provide a detailed gait analysis and musculoskeletal examination using a foot pressure mapping system as well as casting of the foot that provides us with a very clear picture of foot mechanics, pressure and timing sequences of each step.
It is with this information that we are able to provide custom-made prescription orthotics that best fit an individual’s biomechanical and lifestyle needs. Your orthotics can be made to fit into your running shoes, dress shoes, flats, high heels or a combination of different shoes.
Kew Gardens Health Group has partnered with The Orthotic Group leaders in the industry. Dr. Sophia da Silva-Oolup and Dr. Scott Dunham have additional certification in custom orthotic analysis and prescription.
