Approach to Orthotic Consulting 

ProLab uses an evidence-based approach to orthotic therapy. We stay current with the medical literature by continually gathering studies, evaluating them for quality, and then providing you with relevant information so you can provide your patients with more effective orthotic therapy.

An example of this evidence-based approach is our recommendation for treating plantar fasciitis. A 1999 study by Kogler et al. demonstrated that valgus forefoot wedging decreases plantar fascial strain while varus forefoot wedging increases strain. Based on this study, we recommend valgus forefoot wedging on orthoses for plantar fasciitis treatment.
