Our feet are what ground us to the earth and are quite complex structures. The feet encompass 26 bones and 33 joints, making 13% of all our bones in our entire body. If our feet aren't aligned optimally, this can throw our whole body off. Discomfort and pathology can move from our feet to our knees, hips, low back, and even shoulders. That is why it is essential to address any impairments present in our feet to ensure optimal health.
Athletic Advantage therapists will perform an in-depth analysis to see if you require orthotics and precisely the type that will benefit you. Over-the-counter insoles are given without any assessment, thus aren't made specifically for your body. This means it can make your symptoms worse and increase your pain. After a detailed assessment is performed, we use state of the art equipment to ensure we make the best possible orthotic for you. We do not use orthotics as a crutch or permanent fix but as a way to offer relief until we can address any limitations in your body causing you pain.
We provide custom orthopedic braces that are fitted to you specifically. After an assessment, we recommend a brace we believe would be best suited for your injury and needs. Custom braces are made for low back, knees, feet, shoulders, elbow, wrists, thumb, and many more. Conditions a brace may help with:
- Patellar femoral pain syndrome
- Ligament injuries
- Golfers Elbow
- Tennis Elbow
- Ankle Sprains
- Achilles tendonitis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- DeQuervains Syndrome
Most people are unaware that most insurance plans cover custom braces!
