Here at Advanced Foot & Ankle Center we offer custom made foot orthotics and ankle-foot orthoses, fabricated at one of the world's finest orthotic labs -
Foot Orthotics are one of the best ways to treat many foot and ankle problems. Like we tell our patients - "there's just nothing better that you could have in your shoes".
For children with Medicaid, who are 18 or under with flat feet, orthotics are completely covered at no cost to you. Orthotics are a must following many surgeries in order to correct the very problem that may have caused the need for surgery in the first place and to help prevent the problem from coming back. Many times surgery can be avoided altogether with the right custom orthotic device.

Often left untreated, flat feet in children can lead to serious foot conditions later in life. Flat feet are difficult to distinguish in young children until the arch develops between ages six and nine. Some eventually outgrow the condition. Those who don't frequently complain of calf pain, cramping or fatigue, and parents notice collapsed arches and ankles that turn inward. Left untreated, childhood flatfoot can lead to arthritis and other foot problems as adults. Orthotics are a very successful treatment for flat feet in children and are often completely covered by Medicaid and may be covered by other insurances as well.
* P3 Functional Kiddythotics
What is a functional Kiddythotic? It is the only functionally-corrected prefabricated orthoses developed to treat flatfoot in children.
ProLab uses evidence-based research to design Kiddythotics with functional corrections that were previously available only in custom devices.
* P3 Functional Adult Orthotics
Designed by podiatrists using evidence-based research, P3 prefabs are functionally corrected and incorporate control features previously found only in sophisticated custom orthoses.
