Orthotics Help College Athlete Get Back into the Game As a result of subsequent injuries to the feet, college athlete Justin Garrett spent nearly the entire 2013 season off the field. The Auburn junior suffered both a sprained left foot and a broken right foot back in 2013. Garrett’s injuries prevented him not only from participating in spring practices, but even forced him to relinquish his Star safety position to Robenson Therezie Took.

The underlying problem behind Garrett’s injuries was actually an undetected case of flat feet. Now Garrett wears orthotic insoles to assist with arch support as well as wears wide-fitting cleats for added comfort.  Although Garrett did not return to his starting position upon his return, he says he is content just to be in the game.

Orthotics can alleviate the effects of foot and ankle symptoms. If you have issues of the feet, see chiropodist Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics.  Hardywill address your foot and ankle needs.

What are Ankle Foot Orthotics?

Orthotics are physical aids used to support weak limbs or direct the proper function of limbs. Often they are used to support the ankle and foot. Such orthotics are known as AFOs. AFOs help strengthen the muscles or train them to function in the proper position. AFOs can also benefit muscles that need to be lengthened or loosened.

Why might you need orthotics?

Orthotics are often prescribed when someone is suffering from diseases that affect the musculature, like polio and multiple sclerosis. However, more common conditions like arthritis and stroke, or those that “toe in”, may also require orthotics.

Modern orthotics have improved dramatically from the metal braces of previous years. Many of today’s orthotics are made of lightweight plastics and other advanced materials to provide new levels of comfort and support. Often the orthosis is designed in a rigid L shape that is contoured to the calf and flesh colored.
