The foot is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body, yet most people tend to neglect them until pain or infection forces them to seek help. Inappropriate footwear is one of the main contributing factors. The human foot consists of 26 bones bound together by ligaments, supported by muscles and supplied with blood vessels and nerves. It is therefore subject to considerable strain and injury every step of every day. Regular maintenance of nails , corns and callouses can keep you
comfortable and may be covered by your health plan.
Prescription foot orthotics are custom made inserts for your shoes designed to address various foot and lower body conditions. The manufacturing and materials used vary based on patient needs, activities and health factors. Orthotics are often prescribed to accommodate various "wear and tear" foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis(heel spurs), metatarsalgia and soft tissue degeneration. Foot orthotics can also assist in the care of lower body conditions like back pain, diabetic ulcers and knee problems. Most health plans cover most or all of the cost of custom orthotics.
Feet endure tremendous pressures of daily living. An average day of walking brings a force equal to several hundred tons on them. They are subject to more injury than any other part of the body, underscoring the need to protect them with good quality and properly fitted footwear. We sell specialty shoes not available locally.
