I highly recommend Dr. Oji, I was very nervous after a bad experience with another Podiatrist. First the office staff is personable and polite. Office waiting area is roomy and clean. Dr. Oji took the time to address my concerns and made feel at easy. He made the shots painless. The PA is helping me to address a problem I have with my right leg shorter than my left. This has caused a problem in how I walk. I am excited that this problem may be resolved. I am extremely happy and look forward to a long Doctor/Patient Relationship.

This lightweight, breathable, and adjustable night splint provides excellent support for sleep immobilizing. It gently stretches your foot with a perfect angle position. The night splint helps muscle recovery in your foot and reduces pain and inflammation due to Plantar Fasciitis. 

​

It fits most adults, male or female, and the splint may be worn on your right or left foot. This night splint is an open heel design that allows for breathability and stays cooler than closed heel splints.
