Dr. Basaraba can design and construct your custom-fitted orthotic to arrest further damage, reducing pain and letting you get on with your day.
Who Can Benefit from Orthotics?
Orthotics are recommended for people with an unbalanced gait, hyperpronation, supination, high arches, or dropped arch trauma to the ankle and foot.
Orthotics also help the average person that works on hard surfaces and/or uneven surfaces, as well as people with permanent disabilities, diabetics, deformed feet, plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral syndrome, Morton’s neuroma, shin splints, stroke patients, and permanent paralysis of the lower extremity.
Orthotics are a great complement to post surgery of the spine and lower extremity, correcting and stabilizing wear, tear and trauma. In addition, the metabolic disorders effecting the spine, such as osteoporosis, arthritis, spondylosis, spondylolysis, ankylosis and so on.
You may be experiencing issues and not realize that even a subtle foot problem is throwing you off. Any imbalance may result in other hindrances to your posture and mobility. Custom orthotics are a great way to prevent any long-term problems.
About Custom Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics are insoles which are specifically made to support the rear foot, fore foot, and support leg length discrepancy. By maintaining a symmetrical midline of the feet your knees and hips will counter swing in a fluid motion, decreasing wear and tear on cartilage, over use of tendons, and weight-bearing joints.
Dr. Basaraba has been constructing custom-made orthotics for two decades. As a past Canadian National Team Doctor and working for many sport agents, he has used orthotics as the boost to getting that last drop out of an athlete’s performance, helping them to reach their pinnacle. Twenty-one past Olympic medal winners have worn his custom-made orthotics.
Beyond sports medicine, Dr. Basaraba has applied his considerable knowledge and experience to many individuals with arthritic feet, knees, hips and curvature of the spine. Orthotics help stabilize the spine and work in conjunction with chiropractic treatments, extending their effectiveness.
Custom functional orthotics support all three arches of the foot’s plantar vault. Your custom-made orthotics are built specifically to meet your individual foot, body and health needs, and are as unique as your fingerprints.
What About Over-the-Counter Orthotics?
Over-the-counter orthotics may initially cost less, but they only support one arch in your foot. When only one arch is being supported, it may not maintain the structure of your plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body.
In fact, over-supporting just one arch of the foot may actually cause pain and symptoms, not relieve them. Generic, off-the-shelf inserts risk worsening your symptoms because they address only general conditions, and with questionable results.
