Custom braces are special supports that move your feet or ankles into better alignment and protect your joints from injury. Your podiatrist might recommend you wear custom orthotics (shoe inserts) too. Braces and orthotics can treat a wide range of foot and ankle issues to help you heal from an injury, improve your gait or mobility, reduce pain, and prevent complications.
Your Albuquerque Associated Podiatrists specialist can recommend you wear custom braces to correct or treat the following conditions:
You might require a custom brace if you have a fracture, sprain, chronic pain, or other foot and ankle issues. If you’ve recently had surgery, wearing a brace can assist in your recovery.
The expert team at Albuquerque Associated Podiatrists reviews your medical history and examines your feet and ankles to determine if you can benefit from wearing custom braces. They might use X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to diagnose your condition and personalize your treatment plan.
The Albuquerque Associated Podiatrists team fits you for custom braces using cast techniques. They take molds and measurements of your feet to ensure that custom braces and orthotics are a perfect fit. Your podiatrist makes sure the braces fit properly and comfortably before you leave the office.
Your podiatrist lets you know how often and how long to wear custom braces or orthotics to help you achieve the best results. It might be a temporary fix until your injury heals or your bones and soft tissues properly align or a long-term solution in the case of a severe deformity or chronic condition.
Don’t let abnormal gait, an injury, pain, or impaired mobility reduce your physical activity and quality of life. To find out if custom braces are right for you, schedule an appointment with Albuquerque Associated Podiatrists by phone or use the online booking tool today.
