Taking care of your feet is important, especially if you rely on them day in and day out to get you from one place to another.

Robert L. Potempa, DPM has been practicing podiatry for almost 30 years, and he is dedicated to providing the best podiatric care and surgical services to patients of all ages in the Chicago area as well as its surrounding communities. He is also a firm believer in the importance of a successful doctor/patient relationship, which is why he makes it his focus to make sure that each of his patients is thoroughly informed regarding their problems and treatment options. Foot health can be a complicated practice, especially since each case and every patient is different. For many foot related concerns, there are a number of different options available in terms of treatment, but foot orthotics are one of the more common avenues for recovery. Foot orthotics can help alleviate stress, reduce pain, treat deformities, assist post-surgery or post-injury recoveries, and much more. Orthotics may refer to a support, brace, or splint used to support, align, prevent, or correct the function of movable parts of the foot and ankle. Shoe inserts are orthotics that can correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern or deformity (such as bunions or hammertoes) by slightly altering the angles at which the foot moves while walking or running.
In order to get the most out of foot orthotics, Robert L. Potempa, DPM makes sure that all prescribed orthotics are custom made for each patient so they are designed to work as intended. This also ensure that they are as comfortable as possible. For more information or to set up your appointment, call our office today.
