Leaders in Effective Treatment Using Orthotics
Orthotics and ankle-foot orthotics (AFOs) are our most useful , effective and versatile treatment. Our podiatrists’ unique credentials make them some of the nation’s most skilled at custom-designing these devices to precisely control function and resolve your problem. The doctors evaluate the biomechanics of your gait themselves, then take a mold of your foot — still the most exacting method — with their own hands. The nation’s highest-tech orthotics lab then creates your devices to high tolerances. We guarantee the comfort of your orthotics, and we can make most needed adjustments right in the office. Drs. Hale and Huppin are committed to providing the best in foot orthotic therapy, and they know that’s a function of their own skill and experience.
What are Orthotics?
The term "orthotic" can refer to almost any device which is worn inside a shoe. Items called “orthotics” can be found in infomercials, retail stores and even at trade shows. There are three very different types of “orthotics” – custom, customized and off-the-shelf. The educated consumer should be aware of each type.
There is a confusing amount of information available on orthotics. For many consumers making an informed decision is difficult. Recognizing a sales pitch and separating it from facts is the key to better health. The information in this section should provide the information you need to make an informed decision.
Custom orthotics are a specialty of the Foot and Ankle Center of Washington. Learn more about custom orthotics here.
We have a number of patients who travel to see us particularly for orthotic therapy. If you will be coming to see us from a distance, please let our receptionist know so that we can schedule appropriate time.
