What are custom made orthotics?
Custom orthotics are medical devices that are manufactured to address a patients unique biomechanical needs and gait imbalances. They are crafted by skilled technicians and are based on a detailed computerized scan of the foot while standing and in motion. This scan combined with the clinical findings from Dr. Mascetta will allow the technicians to fabricate a custom pair of orthotics to meet the patients unique needs.
How do Custom Orthotics Help?
Custom orthotics help the patient’s body restore a natural balance and normal movement patterns, thereby reducing pain, strain and discomfort. For optimal results, a custom orthotic should be worn on a daily basis inside quality, supportive footwear. Dr. Mascetta will provide specific instructions on how to gradually increase wearing time for activities of daily living and/or specific activities such as running sports.
Over time, custom orthotics prescribed by Dr.Mascetta will bring the patient relief from excessive pressure points, fatigue and pain, allowing them to enjoy daily activities once again.
