ORTHOTICS & KNEE BRACES
Do you have foot pain?
Custom-made orthotics can make a significant difference by changing the way forces transmit through your foot. Orthotics can relieve a number of conditions that lead to foot pain such as:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Flat Feet
- Heel Spur
- Heel Pain
- Fallen Arches
ORTHOTICS: WHAT TO EXPECT
Assessment: 45 MIN
SUBSEQUENT VISITS: 15 MIN
A Tall Tree clinician will thoroughly examine your feet, lower extremities, movement, and lifestyle. We scan how your foot contacts the ground while you’re walking; we analyze contact points, pressure distribution, and all the features that impact the mechanics of your foot while you’re weight-bearing and walking. We ask about the history of your foot problems and how your sore feet are impacting your life. This forms a comprehensive clinical picture that guides us to make the best orthotics possible.
We usually recommend working on foot mobility, strength, coordination, and movement patterns before and while you’re using orthotics, and are happy to go over exercises and recommendations tailored just for you.
Do you have knee pain?
Knee pain is a common condition that affects many of us as we age and/or engage in sport. When it reaches a point where we start noticing it on a daily basis, or it starts affecting our normal activities, it’s time to come in and see if a custom knee brace is a good option for you. Whether these ‘normal activities’ are strenuous like running or sport, or are simply bending down to play with your grandkids or getting up out of a chair, knee pain shouldn’t be a limiting factor to you doing the things that you love to do. Custom knee braces can be a great option for helping with a wide variety of knee problems, particularly for Osteoarthritis and for Post-ACL Injury.
KNEE BRACE: WHAT TO EXPECT
INITIAL VISIT: 45 min
SUBSEQUENT VISIT: 15 min
A Tall Tree clinician will thoroughly examine your lower extremity (joints, ligaments, and muscles), movement quality, and lifestyle. We assess your gait pattern, range of motion limitations, and strength imbalances. We use specialized equipment to measure your knee proportions and ensure a perfect fit. We gather the history of your knee problems and what areas of your life are impacted the most. This forms a comprehensive clinical picture that guides us to make the best choices possible for your brace, as well as to formulate a comprehensive plan that will touch on exercises, life habits, diet, and your goals.
Typically, our approach includes customized exercises for knee mobility, load management, leg strength, coordination, and movement patterns before and while using your brace.
We offer custom Donjoy knee braces, as they are industry leaders in rehabilitation devices. We can also provide ankle, elbow, and arm braces for a variety of conditions.
