Footcontrol foot supports are orthopedic devices (orthotics) prescribed for many types of painful foot disorders. Painful feet can affect our ability to enjoy the most basic activities in our daily lives. Our orthotics are designed to correct mechanical foot imbalances that place abnormal stresses on the joints and ligaments within the foot. It is a well known that abnormal foot mechanics cause stresses that result in foot, leg, knee and low back pain.
While some may be simple, commercially made devices, such as cushioned heel cups or insoles for shoes, the best foot supports are custom-tailored devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of a particular individual. This is done by making an impression of the foot called a cast that duplicates any misalignments in the foot. We can then correct the misalignments with compensation and stabilization techniques. The finished foot supports is then placed in the patients shoe and helps keep the foot in proper alignment. + More
