Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment, including knee, foot, and lower back pain. They can help realign the bones in the foot and ankle and take the stress off other body parts, such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Custom foot orthotics also 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 devices that fit inside most shoes. They are designed to match the contours of your feet precisely and 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 daily and utilized during most activities.
Custom orthotics are prescribed by your chiropractor and last well over a year in most cases. Unfortunately, while over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at most drugstores, they lack the custom-built precision of a prescription orthotic. In addition, these 'one-size-fits-all' inserts rarely match your feet or provide the customized support you need.
Are you interested in incorporating orthotics into your treatment plan? Then, contact your trusted chiropractor and schedule an appointment to discuss how custom orthotics might ease your discomfort.
Understanding The Difference
What's the difference? Can't I go to the store and buy the cheaper orthotics?
Sure, you can go to the store and buy the cheaper orthotics - but they only support one arch in your foot. One of the differences in our Stabilizing Orthotics is that it focuses on your overall health. As a result, they offer a solution, not just short-term symptom relief.
