Orthotic devices may be recommended for several reasons, including:

  • aligning and supporting the foot or ankle

  • preventing, correcting or accommodating foot deformities

  • improving the overall function of the foot or ankle

For example, a wedge inserted into the inner (medial) side of the sole of a shoe can be used to help support a flatfoot, thus reducing the risk of tendinitis. An ankle-foot brace can help relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis in the heel or ankle. A heel flare can be used to increase support and help prevent ankle sprains. Heel cushions can help absorb impact and relieve stress on the heel and ankle when you walk or run.

Dr. Levine will be able to get you the best orthotics necessary for your specific needs. Schedule an appointment if you feel orthotics will be beneficial for any foot or ankle problems you may be having.
