Foot Solutions Goodyear Custom Arch Supports
Hello this is Foot Solutions at Goodyear, Arizona. I’m going to demonstrate the casting
of a custom arch support. So Stay Tuned! You will get a 15% off coupon. Ok, Lynelle, you
decided after our presentation that you would like to get a custom arch support.
So what we are going to do is we are going to cast you now. This is a full weight bearing,
non weight bearing arch support. So you are sitting and not standing, because
if you stand you foot would be in a collapsed state. We want your foot to be free so can
capture your full natural arch. Ok, I want you sit so that your feet are flat on the
floor, that’s perfect. We already rolled your pant leg up, so I will move the left foot
over and I will start with the right foot. So I am going to set your foot into the casting
box. I’m going to bring your knee in so this will line up your heel, because we would like
to cast you in what we call the sub-tailor neutral position. And that’s the calcanus,
the tibia and the fibia. So I am going to drop your heel, I am going to put your lateral
arch in, and the drop the tarsal and metatarsal head in. Make sure the heel is in completely..
Lift your foot straight out. We are going to do your left foot the same
way. Line you up a little better, turn your arch in. You are a supenator, that means you
roll out, so I need to make sure I have you in alignment. Bring your knee heel in, make
sure the tallus bone is straight, drop the heel, and roll your knee. I am going to put
the lateral arch in, drop the hallus and the metatarsal head. Make sure they are in completely,
make sure your heel is down, lift your foot straight out.
Ok, let’s compare. You can actually see your arches. See how high your arches are. This
is a little shorter this is a little longer. And that is the reason you need a custom arch
support rather than something over the counter. So what we do now is we send this to the lab,
it takes about 10 days for it to come back and when it comes back I will call you and
then we will fit you.
