Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking along with knee, foot, and lower back pain. They can help to strengthen the bones in the foot and ankle and take stress off other parts of the body, 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 match the contours of your feet precisely, and are designed for the way you move. 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 or provide the customized support you need.
We proudly use Foot Levelers orthotics for our valued patients. Our Foot Levelers scanner presents information in a way where patients can understand how imbalances in their feet are impacting their daily lives. It can even customize shoe and orthotic recommendations based on a patient's scan report and patient shoe type selections. For more information about Foot Levelers, please click here.
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.
