Custom Orthotics are used to treat a variety of orthopaedic conditions including flat feet, heel pain, knee pain, leg length discrepancies and low back pain. Orthotics may also be prescribed for arthritis and diabetes, and may improve balance/control of biomechanical function.
Dr. Tam uses a combination of Semi-weight bearing foam box casting and GaitScan™, a pressure plate with over 3000 tiny sensors that scans your feet as you walk across it indicating if there are faulty foot mechanics. He will determine if custom orthotics are necessary or if other treatment options exist.
Many health care plans provide coverage for foot orthotics. Please review your plan for this information
