Maintaining long-term patients through custom orthotics
from Podiatry Management
Custom orthotic therapy is a primary treatment utilized by the podiatric practitioner. What may be overlooked, however, is that custom functional orthotics also serve as an excellent practice management tool to maintain long-term patients and referrals. Orthotics serve both as a treatment and, more importantly, as a preventative measure to control progression of many foot deformities, both hereditary and developmental. It is for these reasons that podiatrists differentiate themselves from other providers of orthotic devices, including but not limited to, chiropractors, physical therapists, and local shoe store pedorthists.
