At Milam Chiropractic and Sports Therapy in Tustin, we provide custom orthotics to patients in need. Many people who could benefit from custom orthotics have little or no knowledge of what a custom orthotic is or that they could be a good candidate for a custom orthotic device. We perform orthotic evaluations for patients suffering from a variety of conditions, to help them avoid injury and find comfort in daily life.
Custom orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts designed to fit on the foot of an individual with foot pain or foot problems. Custom orthotics typically work better than over-the-counter options because they're designed to fit around the individual's body. The inserts are designed to accommodate the natural movement of the patient, making corrections and providing support where needed.
Orthotics are made with computer technology using three-dimensional images. These computer-generated images are made by a trained professional. Before custom orthotics can be produced, an assessment of the patient's condition and of the patient's feet must be completed. Once this is done, the orthotics can be made.
Custom orthotics are designed to treat patients suffering from a range of conditions, including:
Even patients who are suffering from general foot pain and ankle pain may benefit from custom orthotics. However, these patients must first come in for a diagnosis and foot assessment before it can be determined for sure whether or not custom orthotics are right for them.
At Milam Chiropractic and Sports Therapy, we provide custom orthotics for patients with foot trouble. Whether you have foot pain because of flat arches, because of an injury or due to a chronic condition, we'll get you the treatment you need in order to feel better and walk right.
