OLNEY, MD, October 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Many patients spend a lot of their time on hard surfaces, which causes feet to begin to roll inward to compensate for the lack of surface area. As a person walks, their heel swings from side to side very slightly, but if it swings too far when walking, the foot may be over-pronating, or flattening too much. This incorrect movement of the heel stresses and weakens parts of the foot. Over time, symptoms may develop in a patient's feet, ranging from a change in shape to pain when walking. To help these patients combat their foot pain, Drs. Christopher Farnworth, Michael Frank and Marc Goldberg offer orthotics for patients in Olney.
The use of orthotics is a highly successful and practical form of treatment. There are three different kinds of orthotics that can be used for a person's feet: rigid, soft and semi-rigid. Each orthotic is concerned with improving the functionality of a patient's feet, minimizing the stress forces that could potentially cause pain or deformity.
"Whether you experience heel pain, arch pain or any other pain in your foot, it is important to seek treatment immediately. When we experience pain, especially in our feet, it can take a toll on our daily schedules, thus preventing us from completing important tasks. At our Olney office we are committed to providing relief from your pain with orthotics," said Dr. Marc Goldberg, a podiatrist in Olney and surrounding areas.
Custom-made orthotics can relieve an array of different kinds of foot pain including heel pain, plantar fasciitis, arch pain, pain caused by running, walking and other athletics, and many other foot pain disorders. If a patient is an active runner or athlete, custom-made orthotics in Olney can be used to keep the foot in its most efficient alignment, allowing the bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments to work to their highest potential.
Additionally, orthotics protect the heel, arch and forefoot from the unnatural and increased stress that prolonged running and sports activity produce. Whether it is to prevent problems, relieve pain, or increase efficiency, runners and other athletes will benefit greatly from the use of custom-made orthotics from Family Foot and Ankle Associates of Maryland.
