Custom Orthotics to Support the Achilles

If this is the case, an orthotic specialist at the Achilles Injury Institute can design a custom orthotic just for you. The doctor and the orthotic technician work together to design a device that is based on your needs and your underlying issues. Gait analysis services can also be used to diagnose the cause of pain and help with orthotic therapy. Orthotics come in a variety of shapes and materials, depending on your individual needs. They can provide greater arch support, thereby alleviating pressure on the Achilles tendon. The absence of this pressure allows the tendon to heal properly. Custom orthotics can also be used to cushion and protect the foot.

Thanks again,
