How we can help: At Healthwise, our Podiatrist will create a cast of your feet in the correct position.  This cast will be forwarded to a specialist provider who will create the Orthotic according to the instructions from the Podiatrist. This process takes about 1-2 weeks. An important step in the process is when the patients returns to have the orthotics fitted.  Our Podiatrist will ensure that the Orthotic provides the necessary support and correction to properly align your feet.  We will also require a follow up visit after a month to make any necessary final adjustments. Orhtotics can also be design to fit into specific shoes or sporting footwear.  Please bring along any footwear that you feel is necessary so that our Podiatrist can provide the best service to you.
