Prognosis: The custom orthotics are a medical necessity and must be worn on a day-to-day basis, for an indefinite period of time. Wearing custom orthotics will alleviate the symptoms caused in the foot, hip, and low back. The orthotics, the feet and gait should be monitored to watch for change in prescription or breakdown of the device.
Casting Technique: Non-weight bearing 3D volumetric cast in subtalar neutral. This data is scanned by technicians. Copolymer plastic is formed over the positive to create a custom orthotic for the patient’s specific correction and symptomatic needs.
