Foot orthotics have been a flexible, effective, painless treatment for a variety of foot ailments for a very long time. And here at Westchester Podiatric Medicine, P.C., we are pleased to offer custom-made and fitted Bronxville orthotics that lead to even quicker healing and less chance of recurrence.
Many of the reasons why foot pain and other problems develop is that there is too much pressure being put on a specific joint, tendon, or other part of your foot. In order to provide relief, your weight needs to shift so that it is not resting on the area that needs to heal. Our Bronxville orthotics do that with an ease of simplicity that may seem too good to be true. They are also useful when it comes to giving you the needed cushioning that your current footwear is unable to provide, or is simply not providing enough of. This is common with heel pain, such as from plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Our Bronxville orthotics can be employed in the treatment of bunions and hammertoes, too. Yes, you can get some off the shelf of your local drugstore, but having them made to fit you exclusively has advantages, because the focus is on your specific ailment, and for your individual circumstances. You might be able to just wear orthotics to get the desired results, but in some situations it will make sense for them to be the centerpiece of a more complete strategy that could include stretching exercises, physical therapy, cortisone injections, or medication. You might even discover that your health insurance is willing to cover a portion of the cost, which is an added plus.
Our Bronxville orthotics can bring about impressive results. Contact our office and let us schedule an appointment for you to come in for an examination to find out if they’re applicable to your needs.
