Dr. Stewart met all of my expectations. I was extremely pleased with the outcome. He took away the pain. I was able to do normal everyday things. — Linda
Custom Foot Orthotics are shoe inserts that are specially made to treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions that typically result from abnormal bio-mechanics.
What are they used for?
These devices are used to treat foot and ankle pathology such as flat feet, plantar fasciitis, and tendinitis. They are also used to slow the progression of deformities including bunions and hammertoes.
Diagnosis is made by a comprehensive foot and ankle exam by Dr. Stewart along with x-rays of the foot. Imaging studies such as ultrasound and MRI are sometimes required to determine the extent of tendon injury.
How do you get fitted?
Dr. Stewart uses the most advanced technology available when making custom foot orthotics. A 3D (3 Dimensional) scanner is used to capture the contour of your feet. The images are sent to the lab over the internet with a prescription for the custom device (orthotic). For complex deformities, Dr. Stewart can also take a plaster cast in the office to make orthotics.
I have worn orthotics my entire adult life. My previous orthotics, which were made by another doctor, were very rigid and uncomfortable. The orthotics Dr. Stewart made for me have been great and I have been able to benefit from having no pain and not having to deal with an uncomfortable shoe insert. – Stephanie Bishop
