HOW DO YOU KNOW IF ORTHOTICS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU 

If you have an obvious imbalance that causes such symptoms as flat feet or high arches, or if you have external misalignments such as "knock knees", "bow knees", in-toeing, or out-toeing then you are probably a good candidate for orthotics. If you participate in an activity that places stress on your feet or if your work requires you to be on your feet for extended periods, orthotics could be beneficial. They can be used to treat foot, heel, and arch pain, some calluses, diabetic ulcers and pressure sores, arthritis, abnormal foot function, and to prevent sports injuries or improve sports function. Orthotics can be used to treat children as well as adults. The best way to find out if orthotics can help you is to make an appointment with us either in Grapevine and Keller by calling 817-481-4000 for an exam. 

At our office, we can custom-design an orthotic device for you. These orthotics will offer support and/or correction that is superior to over-the-counter devices and will last a long time. In many cases, a custom made orthotic from our office is fully covered by health insurance. The most important thing is to remember to call our office at 817-481-4000 and make an appointment. We will take the time to listen to you, understand your concerns, and then offer the best treatment options. The next step is yours!
