Orthotics

Dr. Frantzen provides patients with the custom fit orthotics to meet their individual, biomechanical and lifestyle needs. Prescription orthotics are fabricated using a unique blend of materials in several thickness options.  Whether made for a casual shoe, athletic shoe or skate, foot orthotics provide enough rigidity to support the feet, while offering the foot the right amount of flexibility to properly absorb forces on the ankles, knees, hip and spine. Since many mechanical conditions often arise from a biomechanical gait abnormality, orthotics are often prescribed in combination with chiropractic treatment. Poor biomechanics may contribute to ailments such as:

  • Plantar Fasciiosis
  • Achilles Tendinosis
  • Shin Splints
  • ITB Syndrome
  • SI joint pain
