TAG has a specially trained therapist with over twenty years of experience in custom orthotic fabrication. Orthotics can be an integral part of gaining pain relief, especially in patients who spend a lot of time on their feet for work or recreation.
Orthotic fabrication begins with a biomechanical assessment of the feet, ankles, and knees, as well as an analysis of the patient’s gait to best determine what type of orthotic is appropriate for them. The therapist creates a custom mold of the patient’s foot and sends it to a lab with the specifications from the assessment and analysis. Once the custom orthotics are created, they are fitted in to the patient’s shoes where they better support the patient’s feet and body.
