The basis of many orthopaedic problems is literally the base of your body: the feet. The way you walk, run-- and even stand-- creates a chain reaction throughout the rest of your body. An uneven gait or flat feet can cause excessive pressure on your knees, hips, or back. Overpronation is another condition that can put stress on the joints and soft tissues, leading to pain. At Kayal Orthopaedic Center, we strive to get to the root of your symptoms and offer effective, minimally invasive treatment options to keep you pain-free, healthy and happy. Customized and digitally fit orthotics could be the solution to your foot, ankle, shin, knee, hip and back problems.
What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are inserts that are placed inside shoes to gently reposition your feet. The repositioning adjusts your gait and gives you support where you need it most. Customized orthotics are just that: inserts made especially for your foot shape and size. "One size fits all" orthotics found in the foot care aisle of the drug store do not provide the highly individualized support and fit that you need to return to the pain-free life you deserve.
Customized, digitally fit orthotics are created using specific measurements and digital foot scans. At the Kayal Orthopaedic Center, we don't use antiquated foam molds to fabricate your insert. Instead, we use the cutting-edge DIGITAL TOM-CAT scanner to get the most accurately designed custom orthotic possible. This painless form of personalization ensures that your insert will meld to your foot shape without causing discomfort. Orthotics can be a highly effective, painless treatment method for those with heel or arch pain. Athletes who experience pain during running can benefit from digitally fit orthotics too.
