Foot Conditions Treated with Orthotics

                                                          Pain in the "Ball of the Foot":

Metatarsalgia is pain at the ball of the foot, most commonly the 2nd and 3rd toes because the transverse arch has flattened out or the metatarsal bone has dropped out of place.

A Morton's Neuroma comes from the constant irritation or pinching of the nerve, most commonly inbetween the 2nd and 3rd toes, associated with the loss of the transverse arch.

Orthotics, with a metatarsal arch support, can help tremendously.

   Does it feel like one leg is shorter than the other?

--Most people don't have perfectly even legs, but some people have a leg that is clinically shorter (more than 6mm or 1/4 of an inch) that can cause knee, hip, or lower back problems.

--Some people have a leg that is shorter because of an old leg fracture, knee degeneration, or hip replacement.

--Some people have a leg that "feels" shorter because they have an unknown scoliosis that makes their back crooked and pulls up on their pelvis, but their legs are actually even.  A common sign of this is the person having to keep one knee bent while walking or standing.

--Some people have a curvature in their lower back because they have an unknown short leg.

Exam and X-Ray

We can determine if you have a short leg and measure it within millimeters, using an x-ray. 

Then we can prescribe the proper heel lift for your custom orthotic or shoe lift to correct the problem.

Do You Have Flat Feet or Partially Flat Feet, when you are Standing?

Flat Feet Can Cause:
--Foot pain
--Plantar Fasciitis
--Physiological Short Leg
--Knee pain, Hip pain, Lower Back pain
--"Foot Flare" or Feet pointing outwards 
--Heel Spurs

                                                        Plantar Fasciitis:

Plantar Fasciitis is an irritation of the ligamentous fascia underneath the foot.  This can be caused by having flat feet, that over stretches  and tears the fascia over time.  This is most commonly painful in the morning or after walking a lot.

                   Orthotics Can Help!

                        Flat Feet:

--A flat foot can cause a physiological short leg, due to the decreased height of the medial longitudinal arch and the associated inward bowing of the knee.

--Flat feet can cause knee pain, due to the internal rotation of the lower leg and inward bowing of the knee.  The most common painful area is medial or inner knee pain.

--A Flat foot can also cause hip and lower back pain because the pelvis is unlevel from the physiological short leg.

--Flat feet can cause your feet to point outwards when walking or standing, which is called "foot flare".  This is hard on your feet, ankles, and knees.

                        Orthotics Can Help!

                                                              Heel Pain:

Heel spurs
are associated with plantar fasciitis 70% of the time because the ligamentous fascia attaches and pulls on the heel in this area.

Fat Pad Syndrome is the breakdown of the fat pad cushion underneath the heel bone.

             Orthotics with a heel spur cushion or heel cup can help!
