Duke’s orthopaedic providers will assess a patient’s injury or complaint and determine the best course of treatment that may include casting the foot or ankle or use of a brace or orthotic to help relieve the patient’s symptoms.
Casting is often appropriate if a patient has suffered a foot or ankle fracture and our doctors are skilled at applying the cast to best support a patient’s sprained or foot or ankle.
Orthotics are often used to relieve pain in a person’s foot or ankle. The orthotic is used to balance the foot and eliminate the discomfort.
Orthotics can be used to help correct a foot deformity, support an arthritic foot, or just improve the overall movement and function of the foot or ankle.
Duke’s doctors can help you determine whether an off-the-shelf orthotic device will correct your problem or whether you would benefit from a custom orthotic.
Custom orthotics are made specifically for the patient and offer support and correction that is customized to the patient’s exact deformity or injury.
At Duke we use cutting-edge computer imaging programs to capture the shape of the foot and measure your gait to create customized orthotics that best support your needs.
