Foot Care and Orthotics
Can Foot Orthotics Help You?
Your feet are subjected to tremendous pressure every day from walking, running and even standing. Any imbalance in the feet can lead to an abnormal or irregular walking pattern. Foot orthotics are designed to prevent misalignment of the foot and minimize the stresses that can ultimately lead to foot deformity and pain. By altering the angle at which your feet strike the ground, orthotics improve the comfort and efficiency of everyday movements.
What Symptoms Can Orthotics Relieve?
Besides alleviating obvious foot problems, orthotics may also help if you suffer from nagging leg or back pain. The symptoms of faulty foot mechanics can include any of the following:
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions and hammer toes
- Arch or heel pain
- Leg or knee pain
- Hip or back pain, including neck pain
What are Prescription Orthotics?
Prescription orthotics look like insoles but are biomechanical medical appliances custom made to correct a foot imbalance. Orthotics help your feet in much the way eyeglasses correct your vision – they reduce stress and strain on your body, by restoring your feet’s proper alignment. Made from precise imprints of your feet, custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole.
