Dr. Worley was Board Certified in 1994 in Podiatric Surgery and Podiatric Primary Care.
He has special credentials in Laser Surgery and Minimally Invasive Surgery. He is laser certified for the treatment of Fungal Toenails.
Custom-made prescription orthotics are used to treat
lower back pain, neck stiffness, toe cramping, leg fatigue, arch pain,
heel pain, callouses, hip pain,
corns, and much more.
As with any architectural structure, if the foundation is not stable then the structure above can suffer. Imbalances of the bones of the feet can result in abnormal foot motion that causes foot pain, injuries, and deformities. It also results in excessive internal rotation of the leg that can cause knee pain, hip pain, low back pain, shoulder and neck pain, and headaches.
An Orthotic is an in-the-shoe device made from Plaster-of-Paris impression of the foot and is form fitted to the individual foot. Feet are like fingerprints. There are no two alike.
Orthotics come as a pair in order to balance the feet and body even if
one side doesn't have symptoms. They are worn comfortably in most kinds
Their purpose is to prevent abnormal motion while allowing normal motion of the feet. Orthotics relieve the pain of bunions, corns, heel pain, callouses, arch pain, tired and aching feet, and protect the feet from developing many common foot problems. An Orthotic is designed to control the mechanics of the foot to a precise degree: from the heel contact phase of walking/running through mid-stance and
toe-off phases. Orthotics are to feet what eyeglasses are to eyes.
Absolutely not! Arch supports are designed to push up against the arch while standing. It is for use in static stance and not for walking. Arch support will not control the biomechanics of foot function at all. Everyone's feet are quite different and because these differences are so varied, a precise prescription for each patient is required. Buying arch supports or erroneously described junk "orthotics" over-the-counter is similar to buying eyeglasses off the shelf. An exact understanding of the problem is required in order to obtain superb results. Many major medical plans cover some of the cost of prescription orthotics.
Dr. Worley performs a gait analysis to study the way your feet function. Joint range-of-motion studies are measured in order to determine the degree of foot imbalance present. Following measurements, the prescription is calculated. "Neutral position" plaster casts are then taken. Each foot impression is captured for the corrected position.
These molds are then sent to a specialized biomechanics laboratory for
orthotic fabrication. The technicians use Dr. Worley measurements and
molds. After about 23 laborious steps, your new orthotics are created
that will correctly reposition
your feet, knees, hips, pelvis, and take pressure off your back.
Aside from avoiding surgery for many conditions and relieving
foot pain, orthotics are non-invasive, they do not hurt, are safe,
and are very cost effective compared
to the treatment alternatives.
You also get the benefit of postural correction and the relief of postural pain.
Postural pain is the pain that occurs in the knees, hips, lower back,
the shoulders, neck pain, and even posterior headaches. (in the absence of
Orthotics are rarely an HMO
benefit. When coverage does exist, it frequently is
for non-prescription junk or ineffective arch supports.
$495.00. That's less then having a tooth crowned. Two or more pairs are half price after the initial pair.
We normally ask for one half when Dr. Worley performs his biomechanical evaluation and takes molds. Then, one half is due when your orthotics arrive.
We also offer several types of financial arrangements.
We guarantee our orthotics to fit comfortably or we will adjust them until
they do even if they must be remade. Our custom prescription orthotics
are the finest available anywhere.
Delay causes complications such as increasing pain, deformity, injury, need for surgical intervention, and bad moods related to chronic pain. We are ready to help.
