Patient X Normal Stance

Patient X Normal Stance

People ask me, what do orthotics do…. if you have read other websites, you’d think they do pretty much everything including wash the car and clean out the garage. While I’d agree, many people derive a lot of help from a good pair of custom orthotics, I can’t and don’t promise specific cures for any specific condition.

A mentor of mine once said “Fifty percent of your patients desperately need custom orthotics, the other fifty percent will merely benefit tremendously from having them.” I think there is some truth to the statement.

The purpose of this short ditty is,  to share with you a picture of the mechanical correction achieved on a recent patient. Something I don’t think to do very often.  We all can agree, a picture speaks a thousand words. So without further ado, the pictures please !

If you look at the position of Patients X’s ankles in the “Normal Stance” picture, you can see how they roll in to quite an extreme.

In the second picture with Patient X standing on his custom orthotics, you can see what a difference there is the alignment of his ankles.
