Orthotics are designed to maintain “normal” foot position so that the foot can function properly and pain free. Orthotics improve shock absorption, which helps prevent injuries throughout the body and correct mal-alignment issues. At UP Physical Therapy you will be thoroughly assessed by one of our licensed physical therapists who have advanced training in bio-mechanical evaluation consisting of: a FootDisc screen, and a static and dynamic assessment of your spine, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Our therapists 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. Orthotics helps anyone with lower extremity pain, ankle/foot/knee/low back pain, plantar fasciitis, and flat feet.
