Atlas Custom orthotics are foot inserts that go into shoes. Orthotics are molded to the exact shape of your foot when in a non-weight bearing position before the arch of the foot has a chance to drop. The customized orthotics, shaped to a patient's specific arch height, will cushion and support the bone structure of the arch properly before it drops during the standing and walking positions. Having proper arch support is like the foundation of a house. It must be strong
Orthopedic bracing provides support to various joints in the body including low back, knee, ankle, elbow. Our devices are engineered to provide optimal functional support and assistance, unlike cheaper store-bought options. Depending on the condition either a rigid or a functional brace is prescribed. Insurance plans typically cover some of the cost depending on your policy.
A home electrotherapy device is ideal for chronic musculoskeletal pain which act to block the pain signals from reaching the brain and provide temporary relief. TENS should be used complimentary to therapy for use at home, office or anywhere on your own time and are helpful for kids up to elderly patients. These units are not recommended to put near the head, face, or groin.
Similarly, patients who have undergone a surgery and have open wounds, or have metal inside their body cannot use this device.
Compression stockings are medical graded stockings designed to help prevent venous disorders such as edema, thrombosis, varicose veins, leg pain and leg fatigue. They are specially made from a snug-fitting and stretching material that lightly compresses the leg. Compression stockings are tighter around the ankle and get looser as they move up to the leg. The compression of the stocking promotes better blood and oxygen movement back to the heart rather than staying swollen in the legs.
