What are Orthotics and Bracing?
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
Dr. Zuback is proud to offer custom orthotics courtesy of the Orthotic Group.
What bracing and orthotics help treat
Many conditions may stem from a biomechanical gait abnormality that can be treated with custom orthotics. Here are some common ailments related to poor foot biomechanics:
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Runner’s Knee
- Sacroiliac Syndrome
- Shin Splints

Have Questions? Here's what you can expect from your first visit
Dr Zuback may be treating your back, neck, headache, or other area of pain, but first she needs a complete picture of your health history and current health in order to provide the best possible treatment for you. On your first visit she will take the time to hear about the details of your pain and use a comprehensive exam to help determine the cause of your pain/injury.
Following the first visit, you will receive a comprehensive report of findings, where your questions will be answered and your pain/injury better understood. Dr. Zuback will go over her recommendations of care based on the evidence, her clinical experience and your preferences and goals.
If a condition should be treated by another health care professional, Dr. Zuback will make a referral. Click "learn more" to get a better understanding of what you should expect during your first chiropractic visit.
