Main functions of the Orthotics
We do the custom orthotics for our patient for following conditions
What is the Process?
You will see our Chiropodist, who specializes in conditions of the feet, if you’re experiencing significant issues as mentioned above. They’ll first ask about your symptoms and the Chiropodist will conduct a physical exam of your feet. He will look for deformities and areas that are especially painful.
Chiropodist may ask you to walk and perform some movements in your foot and ankle to diagnose the issues. He may even have special imaging or pads where you walk. These images will show how and where your feet strike the ground and can help determine the exact location and type of problems in the structure and function of your feet.
He may also recommend traditional imaging such as X-ray, bone scan, or MRI. This can help him to identify the areas of arthritis, damage, or injury.
Chiropodist will take all of these diagnostic methods into consideration while making treatment recommendations, including to potentially prescribing orthotics.
Ideally, orthotics and other treatments can help a person avoid more invasive treatments, such as surgery.
