Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to restore and improve regular balance and joint alignment. Cape Cod Healthcare’s Physical Therapists can perform orthotic assessment to determine if the foot’s muscles and tendons are performing efficiently.
Physical Therapists perform:
- Gait analysis to check the body’s alignment while walking or running
- Functional tests, like balancing on one foot, jumping or squatting
- Biomechanical analysis of the foot, including callus patterns, checking joint integrity and examination of the foot’s bony structure
Conditions treated include, shin splints, fallen arches, Plantar fasciitis, knee and back pain and more.
