MULTIPLE
SCLEROSIS

Comfortable walking can be improved through thoughtful integration of your shoe wardrobe with advanced custom foot orthotics for multiple sclerosis treatment

WALKING WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Most of us live with some degree of foot discomfort from the complex and stressful demands on the feet as we walk bearing our own weight and balancing on two feet. Complications due to multiple sclerosis increase the odds of developing discomfort and disruptive complications to healthy standing and walking. They can include:

  • foot pain

  • muscle laxity

  • spasticity

  • difficulty walking

  • difficulty maintaining balance

  • uncoordinated movements

  • stiffness

  • weakness

  • tremors

  • fatigue

  • swelling

  • drop foot

PEDORTHICS FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TREATMENT

Mass-produced shoes and off-the-shelf orthotics cannot address everyone’s detailed needs, especially when complications of multiple sclerosis start to surface.


Boston Pedorthic has developed an integrated approach using shoes+orthotics+orthopedic modifications (where necessary) that optimizes comfort and stability for multiple sclerosis treatment.


A highly individualized approach, combined with in-house, precision technology for producing detailed custom foot orthotics for multiple sclerosis treatment, yields the best results for maintaining comfortable and healthy gait, and addressing risk complications should they arise.

It starts with an in-depth, pedorthic assessment to assess the foot conditions. Beginning with a recounting of your history and symptoms, the pedorthist will examine your feet and your gait and seek to determine the contribution your shoes can make toward your goals.


Why pedorthics? More prevalent in Europe than the US, a pedorthist is an allied health professional, focused on footwear, as it performs to meet your individual foot condition, including but not limited to multiple sclerosis treatment. Pedorthists are highly skilled in evaluating shoes, detailing custom shoes, manufacturing custom foot orthotics and all manners of orthopedic modifications to shoes.


As a person at risk for healthy walking, you can expect to find the pedorthic assessment highly informative and valuable to you. You can count on your Pedorthist as a member of your clinical team.

YOUR ADVANCED ORTHOTICS FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TREATMENT

Your goal is ambitious. It starts with improving comfort and balance. But you can expect more. In most cases, your integrated, advanced custom foot orthotic and shoes for multiple sclerosis treatment should provide substantial improvement of discomfort or pain, and gait anomalies. When your foot impacts with the ground, you can expect much better contact and support. And that will cause less fatigue and help you to become as active as possible.


Custom foot orthotics for multiple sclerosis treatment requires detail to be successful. This includes subtle changes of elevation, pitch and material that become apparent after wear.


Control over all aspects of production, from design to manufacture and using high grade materials for fabrication is important criteria for best practices at Boston Pedorthic because custom foot orthotics for multiple sclerosis treatment often need to be adjusted to deliver an ultimately well-tolerated and sustainably satisfying result for the individual patient. It is important to note that all foot orthotic manufacturing is performed by Boston Pedorthic staff on machinery owned and operated by Boston Pedorthic. The benefit to you is that Boston Pedorthic has the ability to build not just any orthotic, but your orthotic, for your multiple sclerosis treatment, addressing the particular forces that cause problems in your feet and limbs. Precisely and responsibly.

BEST SHOES FOR MS TREATMENT

What are the best shoes for multiple sclerosis treatment? If all feet were equal and all cases of multiple sclerosis identical, the answer would be easy. But the best shoes depend upon you: your feet, and your symptoms. So the best shoes for multiple sclerosis treatment are those that fit your individual feet best, provide comfort, support you, assist in gait, and protect you.

EXPECT MORE RELIEF FROM MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SYMPTOMS

The result is superior support of healthy joint alignment, superior capabilities to offload painful pressures, thorough coverage of the weight-bearing surface of the individual feet, and full integration of shoes for a complete therapeutic result. Each person is different with specific, individual requirements for best results. Indeed, each foot is different, the left, the right and what happens in between them. A highly customized and detailed approach is Boston Pedorthic's signature to multiple sclerosis treatment and maintaining healthy feet for the future.
