Orthotics are shoe inserts that help position and support the feet, as well as correct irregular walking patterns, provide comfort, and ease pain. Orthotics can help make standing, walking, and running more comfortable and efficient, by altering the angles at which the foot strikes the ground. Our physical therapists make custom orthotics to specifically meet individual needs. Request an appointment online or call (303) 460-0329 to schedule your preferred appointment for custom orthotics at Anchor Physical Therapy Spine & Sports Medicine in Broomfield, Colorado.
Orthotics can help improve and prevent many of the foot problems that occur in otherwise healthy people. The first step in the process is to ask your doctor to examine your feet and write a prescription for orthotics. Our physical therapists make custom orthotics by making a mold or impression of your foot. Next, the orthotic laboratory corrects the misalignments and fabricates the shoe insert.
At Anchor Physical Therapy Spine & Sports Medicine, we have inserts that can be designed in the clinic, as well as moldable, in-clinic arch supports.
