The Advantage of Creating Orthotics on Site

At Sierra Foot & Ankle, we provide comprehensive care for a full range of foot and ankle conditions. But if you asked us to pick one specialty area that we’re particularly passionate about, it would be fixing biomechanics, gait, and alignment issues.

Orthotics to correct biomechanics

What does that mean? It boils down to this. Our bodies were not originally meant to spend all day on the hard, flat surfaces of modern living. For many people, the constant wear and tear of daily living and pull of gravity leads to foot pain and pulls feet and arches out of proper alignment. Because your feet are your foundation, that pulls the rest of your standing skeletal system out of alignment, too, and that makes it increasingly difficult to walk, work, be active, stay mobile, and enjoy sports and leisure activities.

One of the best and most versatile tools available to correct foot posture and alignment is the custom orthotic. Just like glasses compensate for visual defects in the eyes, custom orthotics accommodate structural and mechanical imbalances in the feet, allowing them to keep your whole body in better alignment and eliminate pain.

We’re confident that Sierra Foot & Ankle is one of the very best in the business when it comes to custom orthotics fitting. One of the big reasons why, aside from our passion and special training in biomechanical issues, is the fact that we actually own and house our own on-site orthotics lab. Rather than sending molds or scans of your feet to a third-party laboratory, we make and adjust them ourselves under the supervision of the same team of specialists that examined your feet in the first place. Because we are intimately involved in the process from beginning to end, from getting your feet in the best position for measurement, to determining the materials and features, to manufacturing and fitting, we can ensure the highest level of quality and effectiveness.

If constant foot pain and alignment issues are making it difficult for you to stay active and enjoy daily activities you used to enjoy, let us help you correct them. It’s what we do best! Request an appointment online, or give us a call at (775) 783-8037.
