They're Doing It Wrong. See Why The Podiatric Model Doesn't Work
Visit Hometown Family Wellness Center to Learn How Foot Orthotics Really Should be Made
By: Dr. Russell Brokstein
This orthotic we speak of is not an over-the-counter (OTC) like Dr. Scholl's. And it's not a hard, rigid orthotic like podiatrists recommend.
We use a state of the art scanner and laser to determine pressure and arch heights for precise measurements creating the most accurately fitted orthotic.
It's a flexible, soft orthotic hand-crafted by Foot Levelers, the only orthotic in the world with a patent to support all 3 arches of the foot. For almost 70 years, Foot Levelers has been making foot orthotics designed to provide more comfort and less pain. That why Dr. Brokstein is proud to be a certified provider of these orthotics. It's at the top of our list to provide the community with more comfort and less pain, with orthotics being a large piece of our treatment protocols.
Rigid orthotics are made from rigid and hard materials. Give us a call and we can give you some tips on what to do with those old rigid orthotics (hammer, self-defense, paint scraper are just a few!)!!
Rigid orthotics are uncomfortable. They also 'lock' the foot into one position, limiting range of motion of the 26 bones in the foot. The orthotics we provide allow full range of motion, regardless of activity. That's an important piece of the rest of the body performing at its optimal level.
Another positive of Foot Levelers flexible (comfortable)
Why is all of this important? People are in pain! And too often they are pushed to healthcare providers that may not offer safe, completely effective solutions. Our mission is to provide Freehold, NJ with conservative care that actually gets to the root problem (and doesn't just mask symptoms). We strive to provide our patients with reduced pain from head to toe, while improving comfort and performance.
Call 732-780-0044 so we can have you in for a visit and discuss how Hometown Family Wellness Center is an important part of the Freehold healthcare solution.
