Bayside orthotics

Orthotics, also known as orthoses, are custom foot supports that are designed to fit your feet much better than over-the-counter arch supports. Bayside orthotics help to balance the biomechanical inadequacies of your feet and legs. Orthotics offer many benefits to patients as the help to correct foot and ankle conditions and alleviate symptoms caused by them.

There are numerous reasons patients use Bayside orthotics. Some of the most common reasons patients use orthotics are to treat: heel and arch pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain, such as chondromalacia patellae and runner’s knee, and lower leg tendonitis; which is a problem with the Achilles and posterior tibial tendon, and “shin splints”. “Shin splints” is a term used for lower-leg pain that’s located below the knee on either the outside portion of the leg (anterior shin splints) or the inside of the leg (medial shin splints). Orthotics are also used to treat other conditions such as: flat feet, heel spurs and neuromas. Flatfeet is a condition in which the arches of the feet are flattened to the extent that the entire soles of the feet touch the floor when you stand up. The condition often causes problems with your knees and your legs because it can alter the alignment of your legs. Heel spurs are calcium deposits that causes a bony protrusion under the heel bone. They can sometimes cause heel pain. A Neuroma; also known as a pinched nerve or nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue that is usually located between the third and forth toes. It’s a very painful condition with some very unpleasant symptoms such as pain, a burning sensation, tingling or numbness between the toes and the ball of the foot. Foot orthotics are an asset to patients with flat feet, heel spurs and neuromas because they help to alleviate unpleasant symptoms and also help to correct abnormal walking patterns by changing the angles by which the foot impacts a walking or running surface.

Hicksville orthotics

Here at the office of foot care expert Dr. Gary B. Feldman, we are proud to offer our appetites the solution they need to live their lives comfortable any without pain. Some of the most popular products and services we offer are involved with our Hicksville orthotics. Orthotics are customized foot supports that can be inserted into your shoes in order to relieve pain and discomfort and allow you to function more comfortably throughout each day. Our custom Hicksville orthotics go above and beyond the inserts you can buy over the counter, because they are customized to your feet and your individual needs. One common reason that patients need our Hicksville orthotics is because they are experiencing arch pain. You are likely experiencing arch pain if you are in need of more intensified arch support on a daily basis. You can experience arch pain from having flat feet, or from having too high of an arch. Most shoes do not accommodate these foot types, and so our Hicksville orthotics can aid in that accommodation. Another common issue that Dr. Feldman can treat with our Hicksville orthotics is plantar fasciitis, a major cause of heel pain. Plantar fasciitis is a condition in which the tissue that runs from your heel up to the top of your foot becomes inflamed. It can be quite painful throughout your daily life, and it is a chronic pain. If you are experiencing this type of pain, visit Dr. Feldman so that we can fit you for the Hicksville orthotics you need to get your comfort back up to where it deserves to be.
