PODIATRIST DISCUSSES ORTHOTICS
posted: Feb. 13, 2020.
"Orthotics may be used to help reduce foot pain and prevent, or minimize, the discomfort of foot deformities," said Jodie Sengstock, DPM, director of professional relations for the Michigan Podiatric Medical Association (MPMA). "Patients with arthritis, fat pad atrophy, and heel and arch pain are often pain-free with the use of orthotics."

"Other issues such as balance and leg or lower back pain can also be treated with the proper orthotics. An MPMA podiatrist would know if an orthotic is the right solution for an individual, or if a more comprehensive treatment plan is needed," says Dr. Sengstock.
