Orthotics & Bracing for Foot & Ankle Issues Provided for Residents of New Jersey
Most people suffer from a foot or ankle ailment at some point in their life, but for some, there is a way to eliminate or keep that condition under control through orthotics and bracing. Orthotics and bracing can help align and support the foot or ankle, prevent or correct deformities, and improve the overall function of the foot or ankle. Here at Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI), we are proud to offer these treatment options to residents of New Jersey suffering from foot pain. Our orthopedic specialists and onsite podiatrists will work together to create the treatment plan that will work best for you and provide a close doctor-patient relationship every step of the way so that you can feel confident and comfortable while receiving care.
Orthotics & Bracing as Conservative Treatment
At AOSMI, our doctors employ conservative treatment as a first measure when treating a foot or ankle condition whenever possible. This is what leads to utilizing bracing and orthotics in some cases. Orthotics and bracing often are used as a treatment for a wide range of ankle and foot ailments, including:
- Hammer toes
- Adult and pediatric flatfoot
- Corns and calluses
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sprains and strains
- Athletic injuries, such as stress fractures and ankle instability
- Diabetic foot problems
In some case, orthotics and bracing techniques may not be enough to treat an injury effectively. When all conservative treatment options have been exhausted, and pain still exists, surgery could be recommended. If surgery is required, then our board-certified foot and ankle surgeons will develop a plan designed to best treat your condition and promote optimal foot and ankle health. After surgery, bracing and orthotics, as well as physical therapy, may be used to both stabilize and immobilize the injury to promote proper healing.
