HOPS Therapy is pleased to offer custom orthotics at our convenient location.  The therapists who complete the orthotic evaluation and custom fitting have all been formally trained and certified to do so.  Physical Therapists are the experts in musculoskeletal dysfunction and movement and therefore are the optimal licensed professional to see for orthotics.   Therapists look at the entire individual when completing our comprehensive evaluation. We consider an individuals activity level, current complaints, and goals are to ensure a proper fit.   Ongoing assessment of an individuals alignment and form is critical in fine tuning orthotics during weightbearing and functional activities.   Orthotics help improve proper foot alignment and support which is an important part of preventing injuries that have not occurred and also a component of treating those injuries that have.  Common injuries where orthotics help decrease symptoms include:
  • Plantar Fasciitis
