Custom orthotics are the MVP’s of foot care because they solve so many foot problems without the need for medication, injections, or invasive surgery. And even when they’re a part of a more comprehensive plan that may include physical therapy, stretching, etc., they still result in quicker and more successful results. At the practice of Dr. Howard Dinowitz, the priority is to offer you relief from pain, and to promote and maintain optimal foot health.
You may have seen that orthotics are sold in drug stores and in other retail establishments, so what’s the difference between them and our Sheepshead Bay orthotics? The ones you buy over-the-counter are generic, by ours are custom-made and designed to fit you specifically and perfectly. And because of this, you can expect better outcomes and quicker recovery. What kinds of conditions are our Sheepshead Bay orthotics good for? Hammertoes, bunions, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, and flat feet just to name a few common ones. The way they work is that they redistribute your weight so that there is less pressure and stress on the effected joint or tendon. In other situations, they offer needed cushioning that you may not be getting from your existing footwear, or supplementing it so that there is less impact on your foot during the healing process. You will need to come in once for measurements and then a second time to have your custom orthotics fitted so you can then begin using them immediately. Your feet take a lot of punishment, and there are many reasons why you may develop foot pain or other concerns. It’s reassuring to know that you can come to our office for expert care.
To take advantage of our Sheepshead Bay orthotics, please call our office and arrange a time to come in for an appointment.
