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, 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.
What are custom foot orthotics?
Custom foot orthotics are pieces of various materials, such as acrylic or foam, inserted into the sole of a shoe. These are designed to support the structures of your foot and contour curves.
Custom foot orthotics help to realign your foot and ankle, making walking more comfortable.
These are specially made to suit your own feet, so it's important to go to a trusted health practitioner like Dr. Todd Grubb at Capac Chiropractic.
Some may think that orthotics only impact your feet, however, this is not the case! The way you walk and the way your weight is distributed along your foot can also impact your back, hips, knees, and ankles.
Custom foot orthotics are effective ways to realign the bones and joints in the foot and ankle while taking pressure off other joints.
Orthotics are beneficial to a wide range of people and can be worn in regular shoes, every day. With daily use, custom foot orthotics can last well over a year if taken care of well.
While over-the-counter inserts can be bought, they lack customization for your feet and condition.
