Taking care of foot health may not be on the top of everyone’s wellness list, but for many it is absolutely essential. People with deformities, diabetes or other dangerous diseases, previous injuries, and other issues, foot health may be incredibly important and extra support may be needed. With treatment like orthotic care and custom inserts, your specific needs can be addressed in a way that is completely designed around you and your health. Here with Dr. Howard Dinowitz, you can get comprehensive foot health as well as Sheepshead Bay orthotics that are specifically designed to fit your feet and their needs.
Orthotics is a specialty within the podiatry medical field concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses, which are externally applied devices used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system. This can be used for a number of different reasons and to meet many different ends. For some, foot orthotics are used to simply make shoes more comfortable or to improve the overall fit of a shoe. For others, orthotics are more necessary and are needed to help with gait, balance, support, and the overall shape of their foot. Orthotics can help treat issues like bunions or hammertoes in earlier, less severe, stages by alleviated friction and pressure, and providing an added cushion where needed. Here at Dr. Howard Dinowitz, you can learn more about Sheepshead Bay orthotics and have any custom pieces made for you depending on your needs and preferences. Sometimes orthotics can extend up the leg to the knee and over the knee if extensive support is needed or to help with the healing of an injury or other such condition. Orthotics come in different shapes, sizes, and types, but most can be made to suit your specific needs.
