  • Metatarsalgia
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis in the lower extremities
  • Iliotibial Band Irritation
  • Chronic Ankle sprains/instability
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • And many more….

What Does An Assessment Look Like?

We provide a detailed gait analysis and musculoskeletal examination using an individualized analysis as well as casting of the foot that provides us with a very clear picture of foot mechanics, pressure and timing sequences of each step.

It is with this information that we are able to provide custom-made prescription orthotics that best fit an individual’s biomechanical and lifestyle needs. Your orthotics can be made to fit into your running shoes, dress shoes, flats, high heels or a combination of different shoes. Kew Gardens Health Group has partnered with The Orthotic Group leaders in the industry.

Dr. Sophia da Silva-Oolup and Dr. Natalie Labelle have additional certification in custom orthotic analysis and prescription.
