Many cases of lower back pain, hip pain, knee pain or foot pain are caused by faulty foot and ankle mechanics.
Orthotics are custom fit, prescription shoe inserts designed to correct dysfunctional foot mechanics. They can be worn in all types of shoes, and can be designed specially for skates and ski boots.
Gait assessment, foot casting and the fitting of orthotics are all done by Dr. Dodsworth personally.
These prescription orthotics are typically made of 2, 3 or 3.5mm full memory thermo-acrylic with extrinsic heel posts of 45 durometer hardness. They are available with wide variety of top covers to accommodate specific activities and achieve maximum comfort.
The cost of prescription orthotics are often covered by extended health insurers.
