Orthotics help improve proper foot alignment and support, which is key to treating current symptoms and preventing future conditions from developing. At Nebraska City Physical Therapy, we utilize the gold standard for custom orthotics, suspension casting. Our therapist will complete an evaluation and gait analysis and then perform a casting with the foot in a neutral position for perfect fit and support.

A neutral suspension cast creates a mold of the foot in a non-weight-bearing position, capturing the foot in an uncompensated position. The orthotic fits this uncompensated position to avoid the excessive and damaging motion that occurs during weight-bearing.  For this reason, we believe suspension casting is superior to foam impression methods that you will see at a foot store.

Orthotics can help treat conditions like:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis
  • Foot ulcers, pain and stress (diabetic conditions)
  • Flat feet
  • Heel spurs
  • High arches
