Custom Made Foot Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics are supportive devices that are worn in your shoes and position your foot in proper alignment. They are prescribed to reduce the frequency of movement-related injuries, to align the skeleton properly, to provide improved cushioning, to improve sensory feedback, and/or to improve comfort.
At Snyder Physical Therapy, we custom make your foot orthotics right here in our clinic. In most cases, we offer SAME-DAY service, allowing you to take your orthotics home with you and get you on the road to relief.
Rob Kobza, PT, OCS, CSCS who has over 20 years of experience in prescribing custom foot orthotics will fabricate your orthotics. Rob will also provide a thorough biomechanical and structural evaluation to determine what kind of orthotic is the most appropriate for you. Rob has lectured nationally to physical therapists on foot and ankle rehabilitation, lower extremity biomechanics, gait analysis, and custom foot orthotics. He has also taught physical therapy students in the University of Nebraska Medical Center Physical Therapy program on how to fabricate custom foot orthotics.
