Orthotics & Sports Injuries
Who doesn't like getting a great bargain, like orthotics from your local drug store or super wholesale center? But buyer be-aware! The orthotics that you get from these outlets are typically fabricated from weightbearing computer scan images of your foot. Unfortunately these images are not truly custom models of a three dimensional foot, such as the models made in our office. The computer image has no instinsic balancing of the forefoot and rearfoot deformities. Therefore a true correction of alignment is not possible
Whether you are the school's star athlete or a weekend warrior, you will likely experience a foot injury at some time. the most common injuries are stress fractures, heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, ankle sprains and Morton's neuromas. We carefully treat the sports injury by assessing the underlying biomechanics and determine how to best control those forces to allow quick recovery and to prevent further injury.

Foot pain is not a healthy condition. Pain-free feet are the key to your independence and getting through your busy day. Reconstructive foot surgery may be needed to allow a foot to function properly and alleviate the pain. The type of foot surgery will determine the length and type of after-care required to assure your recovery is rapid, uneventful and successful. Post-operative care will include follow up visits with Dr. Sutera or Dr. Jones, rest, ice, compressions and possibly pain management medication. Bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts and crutches may be necessary to improve recovery and to insure your safety after surgery.
