BIOMECHANICS AND ORTHOTICS
Proper foot and joint alignment is an essential treatment for many injuries and chronic complaints. Custom orthotics can enhance sport performance and improve degenerative conditions and walking. We provide a complete analysis of function, muscle adaptability and alignment to assess individual needs. A plaster mold of the foot is then made to produce the appropriate orthotic.
THERAPEUTIC SHOES AND BRACING
Many diabetic, arthritic and neuromuscular conditions require special shoes or braces to assist in balance and function and prevent lesions. We custom cast and provide many appliances to keep our patients independent.
We offer on site Digital X-ray and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to diagnose most bone and soft tissue pathology. Our ultrasound imaging is vital in providing accurate, therapeutic injections for effective treatment.
ADVANCED TISSUE TECHNOLOGY
- Platelet Rich Plasma - This injection utilizes your body's own growth factors to speed healing of traumatized tendons and ligaments. It also improves healing of wounds, including diabetic ulcers, to assist in prevention of amputation.
- Viscosupplementation - This injection helps restore the moisture and elasticity of joints where degenerative changes have occurred to promote pain free function.
- Bone Stimulation - This modality provides pulsed ultrasound waves to acute or delayed fractures to improve healing and help reduce complications and recovery time.
- Biologic and Engineered Wound Dressings - This includes a variety of scientifically derived dressings and artificial grafts which improve healing and potentially reduce leg amputations. We have extensive training in management of complicated wounds including diabetic and stasis ulcers.
