Dr. Toback is nationally recognized speaker and educator on custom orthotics
Toback Podiatry specializes in Custom Orthotics, also known as prescription foot orthoses. Orthotics are custom-fit shoe inserts that alleviate all types of foot pain and ailments including pronation (turning of the foot), flat feet, heel pain, bunions, corns, and calluses, as well as various types of leg and back pain.
Three types of Custom orthotics are prescribed to patients based on physical need. Toback Podiatry offers Rigid, Semi-Rigid and Soft/Flexible orthotics. Rigid orthotics offer the ultimate in functional control, excellent for growing children as well as patients suffering from foot, leg, and back pain, leg length differences and foot abnormalities. Semi-rigid orthotics offer shock absorption and are recommended for sports enthusiasts who are highly susceptible to foot and ankle injuries and ailments, including plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and repetitive ankle sprains. Excessive stress and strain on the muscles and bones of the feet can exasperate the most minor biomechanical faults and aggravate minor foot deformities. The amount of pressure your body absorbs when sprinting may be up to eight times that of your total body weight. Soft orthotics maximize shock absorption for patients who no longer have the protective fat pad cushioning on the soles of their feet, resulting in painful pressure areas. Soft orthotics are recommended for senior citizens, arthritics, diabetics and those patients with severely deformed feet who have a difficult time moving about in shoes.
“Fashion is painful” … or so they say. It doesn’t have to be, especially when you can have Dress Shoe orthotics. Now you can wear your most stylish footwear and still have the support and comfort you need. High heels, pumps, slingbacks, and fashion flats can be part of your wardrobe once again.
Toback Podiatry utilizes a specialized fiberglass slipper to make the most accurate impression of your foot to fabricate the most accurate orthotic available today.
