Orthotics – Custom, Semi Custom and off the shelf inserts
Orthotics come in many variations and styles, but in general are designed to help with influencing or controlling motion at the foot and ankle to allow improved biomechanical alignment though the entire lower extremity. Orthotics can aid in alleviating pain in many regions of the body by reducing the strain caused by poor alignment, a lack of support, or insufficient shock absorption by the foot and ankle.
Many individuals associate the use of orthotics with painful conditions of the foot such as plantarfascitis, tendonitis, shin splints, or stress fractures often due to overpronation. However, more often than not, poor foot mechanics can lead to knee, hip, and low back stress that may be the precipitating factor beside foot pain.
BE Fit offers multiple types of orthotic inserts ranging from off the shelf inserts to fully customized sport and dress orthotics. We offer a semi-custom orthotic by Quadrastep. This orthotic is less expensive when compared to a full custom option and we can often customize it just as well as a full custom orthotic with a few modifications.
Many Individuals often require a more custom fit and various rear and forefoot posting that cannot be accomplished by a simple of the shelf inserts. At BE Fit, we design and cast our orthotics after a full foot assessment and evaluation process that includes:
Specific ankle and foot measurements
Casting of your feet is then followed by fabrication of custom orthotics. Stride Orthotics completes our fabrication process. They have more than twenty five years of experience as an industry leader and they work one on one with our PTs to get the most custom orthotic for your needs.
