Orthopedic Supports


Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.

Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body. 

This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.

Cervical and Lumbar traction slightly separate the joints in the neck and lower back to reduce pressure on the joints and discs. This will help reduce swelling of the tissues which alleviates symptoms, improve range of motion and improve biomechanics. It is especially helpful in reducing pressure on nerves throughout the neck.



Cervical collars and lumbar support belts are often used to limit joint mobility to provide time for healing of neck and lower back injuries as well as provide stability when the muscle tissue has been injured and weakened from injury. Braces should only be used to get through the acute stage of an injury to assure the muscles do not become weakened and joints do not lose mobility.
