ORTHOTICS

           Orthotics are custom-made corrective shoe inserts. Dr. Ted utilizes the Orthotic Group and their highly skilled laboratory technicians take special care in fabricating prescription orthotics which meet the highest level of standards. Each patient’s orthotics are designed from Dr. Ted’s professional prescription specifications and gait analysis. They are built to meet the individual biomechanical and lifestyle needs of the patient.

            The TOG Gait Scan System is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing a patient’s biomechanics. The Gait Scan System has an industry high 4096 sensors and scans at an industry high 300Hz.  These measurements provide Dr. Ted with a sophisticated explanation of foot mechanics and assists him with orthotic and/or shoe solutions.

            A common question often asked is how do I know if I need orthotics. A lot of the time your body will tell you by experiencing common symptoms that are associated with poor foot mechanics. Some of those are:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain – even neck pain

            Orthotics can help with foot and joint pain caused by arthritis, overuse and injuries. They can aid in orthopedic correction, athletic performance, and even correcting for discrepancies in leg length.ortho_pic1
