Benefits of Corrective Therapy Orthotics:
Properly fitted Corrective Therapy Orthotics support the foot to control excessive and unwanted pronation and supination. This helps to reduce unwanted stress on the body.
Dr. Manfedi is trained in the custom casting of orthotics; this casting allows the patient’s feet to be casted in plaster, this “negative” of the foot is sent to the laboratory where a positive plaster model is created, to which the custom orthotic is formed. There is NO guesswork and the orthotic is perfectly fit to make the appropriate correction for each individual patient.
Conditions which are helped by orthotics include:
- Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Spur Syndrome)
- Patella-Femoral Syndrome
- Torn Meniscus of the knee
- Lower Back and Hip pain
- and Many Others
Improved shock absorption reduces repetitive stress on joints and muscles, permitting smoother function and decreasing arthritic symptoms.
Use of Corrective Therapy Orthotics represents a long-term, yet cost-effective intervention for many types of functional and structural problems.
How Corrective Therapy Orthotics Work:
Wearing Corrective Therapy Orthotics inside your shoes is similar to placing a shim beneath the leg of a wobbly table: it adds support to eliminate unwanted motion in the entire structure.
The foot is formed of three distinct arches, which create an architectural vault. The result of supporting these three arches is improved stability and postural integrity.
Flexible Corrective Therapy Orthotics encourages optimal muscle and nerve function by guiding the feet through a more normal pattern with each step taken.
About Corrective Therapy Orthotics:
Skilled laboratory technicians create unique CTO designed to correct and support areas of weakness.
The combination of flexible, yet supportive and durable construction materials ensure that the stabilizers will both guide the feet when walking and provide support during long periods of standing.
