Functional littleSTEPS UCBL orthotic devices help compensate for the underlying biomechanical abnormalities which lead to the structural deformities and their resulting symptoms. I explain how deep functional custom UCBL’s will help control the biomechanical abnormalities and reduce the progression of the multiple foot problems which could occur in the future and also continuation and furthering of all other involved upper extremity issues and systems. A more normal gait and ankle motion will allow upper kinetic chain muscles to fire more readily and symmetrically. Orthoses also can help prevent the potential need for surgical intervention possibly needed in the future by preventing unnecessary chronic foot collapse that can lead to a rigid flatfoot deformity.
