 A ProLab client called me today with questions regarding a prescription for a pair of orthoses for a patient who recently had an arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint on the right foot, and was experiencing first MPJ pain secondary to hallux limitus on the left foot. On the right foot, the patient was experiencing metatarsalgia pain with pain primarily under the second MPJ.

Our goal of treatment is to decrease pressure on the second metatarsal head on the right foot, and on the left foot to enhance motion in the first metatarsophalangeal joint.

ProLab takes a scientific approach with our orthoses by integrating evidence-based medicine into orthotic therapy. Our team of Medical Consultants regularly evaluates the medical literature pertaining to orthotic therapy and biomechanics. ProLab clients are encouraged to contact a medical consultant whenever they have questions about an orthotic prescription.

For an easy way to stay up-to-date on evidence-based orthotic therapy, subscribe to our free E-Journal. Your will receive a monthly email synopsis of the research that impacts your practice.
