Advanced Podiatry specializes in engineering custom orthotics to correct foot problems, improve posture, alleviate pain – and as an alternative to surgery. We take the time to properly analyze each patient and we specialize in custom-designed orthotics for children, seniors and athletes.
The foot is made up of 26 bones. There are numerous joints between these bones that allow the foot to be both a rigid lever and a shock absorber. Ranges of motion for the foot and ankle vary between individuals -- and between children and adults.
Podiatric biomechanics diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the foot, ankle and lower leg. Abnormal amounts of pronation or supination can cause a variety of foot and leg problems. Abnormal biomechanics can also create lower back, hip, knee, ankle and/or foot problems.
Diagnosing issues of biomechanics is extremely complex. Gait analysis is an art, as well as a science. Allow us to analyze and diagnose your individual biometrics and to fabricate an orthotic that is designed only for you. We also fit & sell orthopedic shoes.
