What are Orthotics?
Foot orthotics are custom-made devices that are worn in your shoes. Dr. Masson will either take a mold of your feet with plaster to obtain “impressions” of your feet. This makes an identical picture of your foot. We then send the molds/scan to an orthotic laboratory for fabrication. Orthotics are more than arch support. Orthotic devices are used for a variety reasons. The orthotic devices control the foot and help realign the structures of the foot. Orthotics have influence on the spine, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Orthotic devices are useful in treating a myriad of disorders that cause pain or dysfunction of the lower extremity.
