Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment- including knee, foot and lower back pain. They can help to realign the bones in the foot and ankle. They can take stress off of other parts of the body such as; the back, neck, shoulders and hips. Custom made orthotics cushion your feet, provide comfort, support your arches and evenly distribute your body weight to eliminate pressure on your feet.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Custom foot orthotics are specially made to fit inside most shoes. They match the contours of your feet/arches precisely and are designed for the way you move.
Orthotics can help anyone with discomfort relating to walking, or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. A tremendous benefit of custom orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and utilized during most activities.
Custom orthotics can be prescribed by your chiropractor and last well over a year in most cases. While over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at most drugstores, they lack the custom-built precision of a prescription orthotic. These ‘one-size-fits-all’ inserts rarely match your feet well, or provide the customized support you need for all of your arches.
