Sometimes children experience difficulty developing through early childhood to adolescence into adulthood. As a child develops there are unique forces, growth patterns and stresses going through the body. When these forces start to exceed what the body can handle pain and injuries occur.
We understand the child developmental process and how to best manage child foot care, having had personal experience with similar issues growing up. Our treatment programs are designed to not just relieve pain but prevent permanent damage, and prevent re-injury.
Orthotics are custom made foot and ankle supports designed to change abnormal walking patterns or offload a painful structures within the foot.
They provide support while standing, walking, and running, altering the loads and timing at which the foot progresses through the gait (walking/running) cycle. The reduced loads within the foot allow damaged structures to recover relieving pain, swelling and inflammation.
Connective Healthcare uses GaitScan to accurately measure and design a custom made orthotic for your particular injury.
