Custom orthotics are devices that have been precision-made to help align the foot and ankle into the optimum position for an efficient and proper gait. They are biomechanical medical appliances that are designed to help correct foot imbalances and alleviate pain and dysfunction associated with these conditions. They reduce strain on your body by helping to re-align the foot and ankle by redirecting and reducing certain motions while walking. They are custom – fitted for each patient by first taking a precision mold of each patient’s feet, as well as undergoing a complete analysis and examination of the patient’s foot, ankle and gait.
Orthotic therapy can help alleviate localized foot pain, arch/heel pain, leg/knee pain, as well as hip and back pain.
Dr. Shawn Bulger has been assessing and treating foot and gait conditions since 1995.
