Custom Orthotics - Podiatrist, Valley Stream and Lake Success, NY Dr. Mary Ann Bilotti of Long Island Podiatry Group discusses the use of Custom Orthotics. Custom Orthotics can help correct biomechanical problems of the foot to alleviate heel pain and other foot problems. Our Orthotics are designed to fit your individual body needs and are definitely not-“one size fits all!” Custom foot orthotics should not be confused with over the counter “arch supports”. These devises are custom fitted for you and your family at our office either by cast or foam impression or 3-d computer scanning. Orthotics are designed to correct abnormalities of gait and to decrease painful pressure on overly stressed joints, bones and ligaments. Children can benefit greatly from wearing orthotics especially during the developmental years when bones and joint require structure and support. Adults and athletes know that orthotics can help keep them active during work and recreation and help prevent injury and in many cases the need for surgery. The elderly and diabetic population rely on custom orthotics to relieve pain and prevent potentially limb threatening ulcerations and wounds. Visit our website:
