Addressing patient’s pain and treating underlying biomechanical deformities is one of our favorite things to do here at HFAA! We love getting our patients (young and old!) back on their feet and alleviating their symptoms related to foot pain.
It starts with the basics – addressing a problem with an easy, predictable solution.
When your feet are out of the correct alignment, your entire body suffers. The simple fact is that many muscle aches and joint pains are due to misaligned feet and abnormal biomechanics as you walk (think of your feet as tires – they need an alignment adjustment!)
We utilize Icon Orthotics which provide a significant breakthrough in foot and total body support and realignment.
Proper support for ALL the bones in your foot is essential for joint health throughout your entire body.
Your Feet are the Foundations of Your Body
When your feet are out of alignment, excess strain is constantly being placed on your joints causing them to become unstable. This leads to premature and excessive wear that ultimately causes joint damage, pain and injury. Osteoarthritis, chronic injuries and body aches are often due to poor foot alignment, yet we accept this as a “normal part of aging.”
Improving Health from the Ground Up
Our Icon Orthotics cushion and support your feet as it gently lifts the arches into proper position. Each orthotic is custom-made to fit your feet and adjusted to support you perfectly.
Fitting Your Personalized Orthotics
We take an impression of your feet which are then used to manufacture Icon Orthotics uniquely suited to your feet to correct your problems.
At your dispensing visit, you’ll try out your new orthotics. We review our detailed orthotic break in instructions and Dr. Lockwood watches you walk to assess your improved mechanics! We then schedule your first follow up visit at 3 weeks1
One or more additional visits may be required to get an ideal fit. Be sure to let us know as you soon notice the improvement in terms of less pain, easier walking, better endurance in running or other changes!
Our goal is to get you back on your feet, pain free, as soon as possible. We try to avoid surgical procedures and employ devices like our custom orthotics to safely help you treat your problems effectively!
We even offer a special Pediatric Orthotic Outgrowth Policy to better meet the needs of our pediatric patients with custom orthotics!
