Faulty biomechanics, or when the bones of the foot do not align properly, often causes the body to overcompensate when walking or running. Painful foot conditions can develop because of this and can include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Achilles tendon problems

Back and knee pain can also develop from faulty biomechanics. The most effective and simplest way to correct such painful foot conditions is with a custom orthotic.

Just as prescription eyeglasses correct vision, custom orthotics are inserts that fit into your shoes and are custom molded to correct faulty biomechanics. This reduces abnormal motion while you walk or run and equally disperses pressure on the bottom of your feet. Many of our patients not only receive relief from their foot pain, but also gain relief from their knee and back pain.

If you are suffering from foot pain, come in for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for custom orthotics. Make an appointment with our office by calling (516) 825-3860 or book an appointment online.
