GENERAL PURPOSE ORTHOTICS
Dr. Ciccone specializes in podiatric orthopedics and utilizes precise hand casting techniques coupled with what we believe is the best orthotics lab in the United States. The orthotics are hand made and backed by the lab 100 percent, and are constructed of the best quality materials available. These orthotics can be fashioned for any combination of activities.
Dr. Ciccone uses two different labs for running orthotics, one of which fabricates orthotics for the US Olympic team. The partnership of Dr. Ciccone and this lab has a history of 30 years. Professional triathletes have benefited and attest to these running specific orthotics. With the requisite biomechanical exam you will have the best orthotic available.
Dr. Ciccone, who avidly trains as a cyclist who enjoys time trials and long distance riding, developed light and Rigid Carbon Fiber Foot Support PROCYCLE ORTHOTICS. These feather light footbeds are rigid carbon fiber, like high-end frames and components, and are as thin as a sheet of paper. Each foot is individually casted for full custom support.
Dr. Ciccone has been in development of these state of the art orthotics with local professional triathletes, who have realized the benefit and extra performance these provide. Your interface with a cleated shoe will not allow excessive motion of the foot (pronating) or non-linear knee action. The knee and lower leg will track up and down in a non-distorted fashion, thereby reducing knee and foot injury and overuse symptoms. Over the counter inserts, ski inserts and prefab molds are the generic version for almost the same price as these custom individually made supports.
The process starts with handmade molds of the entire foot, and the carbon inserts are then handcrafted for a perfect fit. There is not a better, lighter, more rigid device as these are for cycling only.
