Walk A Step Closer To Happier Happy-Feet!
It is possible to eliminate the pain of foot injuries and conditions like plantar fasciitis. You can do this by getting yourself a pair of custom orthotics. These are devices made specifically for your foot. They act as arch supports. Our staff have the appropriate training in giving custom orthotics solutions for many years now. In fact, we want you to be as comfortable as possible.
What Is A Custom Orthotic?
We use a device like a custom orthotic in order to align the foot. The ankle also aligns into the most anatomically efficient position. Custom Orthotics look like insoles but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics undoubtedly work on your feet much as glasses work on your eyes. This is because they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting. It also helps with reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle.
Moreover, they fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole. Most importantly, scientists use precise imprints of your feet to create the customized orthotics. As a matter of fact, that’s one of the most important advantages you can have with it. In summary, we want to make sure you fit well and you are comfortable with the custom orthotics.
Who Needs Custom Orthotics?
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch/heel pain
- Leg/knee pain
- Hip or back pain – even neck pain
- Planter Fascitis
What Can You Do?
Your health care practitioner can prescribe custom orthotics, so it can help correct your specific foot and body imbalance. Additionally, you can help your health care practitioner by discussing any nagging foot, leg, or back problems. In addition, even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem.
Custom Orthotics are certainly effective for clients who have painful shins, crooked toes or other foot problems.
