Custom Orthotics Optimize Your Feet To Help You Walk, Run, and Play Better!


At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Houston podiatrist specializes in Custom orthoticsMany types of foot pain are causes by unstable of faulty mechanics of the foot and ankle.  The ideal way to make the foot and ankle work more efficiently, and to keep pain away long term, is the use of a custom foot orthotic. 

Orthotics are custom designed insoles for your shoes. The orthotics reposition your foot to allow them to work as efficiently as possible and provide for a stable “base of support” for the rest of your body. They are made from a mold of the foot taken in a “neutral position” that is modified based on a comprehensive biomechanical examination of the lower extremity. You should consider orthotics as a solution if you suffer from bunions, hammertoes, heel or arch pain, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, tired feet, or any pain in your feet, legs, knees, hips, or back during walking or exercise.
