Baltimore, MD (June 14, 2012)— The Maryland Spine Institute makes customized feet orthotics (orthopedic braces) for people seeking cures for lower or upper-body pain.
An orthotic is a brace worn on parts of the back, arm, leg, or foot to support or correct the functionality of a limb. The Baltimore pain management clinic specializes in foot orthotics that helps address muscle pains all over the body. Since foot orthotics hold up the arch of the foot if it drops or flattens, they provide better foundation for body movement.
Feet and ankle orthotics also help stabilize gait, distribute the amount of weight placed on the feet, and correct or prevent deformities.
The Baltimore pain management doctors construct an orthotics by placing a cast under a patient’s foot arch while they are standing. The orthotic is then built to fit the patient’s foot arch. These are recommended over off-the-shelf shoe inserts, which are based on standard foot sizes and do not suit people with particular conditions.
MSI’s orthotics are not fitted while patients are sitting or lying down, as the feet bear weight differently once a person stands. Casts formed in this position are better suited for people with feet malformations like bunions. Neither does The Maryland Spine Institute use the styrofoam mold technique, which yield orthotics that match the contour of patients’ feet, but do not fix biomechanical problems.
Patients who are looking for the kind of chiropractic Baltimore patients can count on for quality services can visit MSI to discuss their needs. MSI also treats Baltimore physical therapy patients through decompression therapy, cold laser treatment, and anatomical support pillows.
The Maryland Spine Institute offers free consultation with a trusted chiropractic in Baltimore. The clinic is located at 730 Baltimore Pike, Bel Air, Maryland.
