Achilles Tendinitis; Achilles Peritendinitis; Achilles Tenosynovitis Reduce stress and tension on heel cord with up to ½” heel lift. Apply bilateral as to maintain symmetry. Reduce tension on heel cord by correcting hyper pronation. Ankle Sprain/ Ankle Instability Provide stable foundation for foot and ankle in a position maintained by foot orthotic. Chondromalacia/ Patella compression syndrome Realign the foot with the leg as such conditions: forefoot varus, hindfoot varus, equines ankle with tight triceps surae, leg length discrepancy, tibia varum, reduce foot hyperpronation and all other biomechanical faults etc. Compartment Syndrome of the Leg Anterior Compartment, Lateral Compartment, Superficial Posterior Compartment, Deep Posterior Compartment Correction of the biomechanical imbalance of the foot and lower leg by means of maintaining correct architecture of foot during ambulation. Iliotibial Tract Friction Syndrome Support the foot and to reduce hyperpronation of the foot, adding a small varus wedge to take some stress off the inflamed iliotibial tract Leg Length Discrepancy, Anatomical and/or Functional Anatomical: Lift up to ½ built into the orthotic Functional: restore architecture of foot to restore equality and symmetry of leg, hip, back, shoulder. Stress Fractures of the Lower Leg prophylactic and treatment To accommodate mechanics of cavus foot, tibia varum, foot type, leg length discrepancy, inflexibility, genu valgum, transverse plane abnormalities, (especially out toe) anterior weakness, posterior weakness. Tendinitis of the Tibialis Posterior Tendon Orthotic to provide more support for the longitudinal arch. Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome Decrease the rate and amplitude of pronation which is a result of abnormal compensations within the lower extremity. Such as: forefoot varus, hindfoot varus, equines ankle with tight triceps surae, leg length discrepancy, tibia varum, reduce foot hyperpronation and all other biomechanical faults etc. Medial Compartment Knee Osteoarthritis Reduce knee varus torque during walking and reduce the peak external adduction moment in the OA knee by providing a 5 to 10 degree lateral wedge foot orthoses. Painful Heel Syndrome Calcaneal Spur, Plantar Fasciitis Control mechanics of foot. Medial lateral arch contour, establish adequate range of motion with the 1st MP joint. Combine control with heel pad to cushion the heel, accommodate the painful heel spur, and decrease stress on the heel, deep heel cup to control calcaneal movement and reduce the amount of heel pad flattening on weight bearing and to shift some weight-bearing stress to the midfoot and forefoot.
