The Sports Physical Therapists at VASTA can create custom orthotics based on your individual needs. A pair of truly custom orthotics differ considerably from an over the counter arch support, or a heat molded arch support that you may find at a running store. Our custom orthotics are molded precisely to your feet and then ‘posted’ or modified to correct for any foot or ankle mal-alignment found by your PT.
To make a pair of custom orthotics, our Sports Physical Therapist will perform an in-depth biomechanical assessment and consider the quality of movement from the entire lower limb in deciding if orthotics are a good solution for you.
Your custom orthotics will be fit, not just to your feet, but in consideration for how your entire lower limb moves, what inefficiencies can be helped through ideal foot alignment or support, and with consideration for your unique sporting needs.
Because we specialize in movement biomechanics, your Physical Therapist may point out multiple factors contributing to your foot and/or lower extremity pain – foot orthotics may not be the only answer. We are your best solution for corrective exercise prescription and movement re-training. Orthotics are used by VASTA Physical Therapists as an adjunct to a comprehensive approach to help you ‘Move Better, Feel Better, Perform Better’.
