Custom foot orthotics are a beneficial solution for addressing walking and alignment issues, including knee, foot, and lower back pain. These orthotic devices are designed to realign the bones in the foot and ankle, relieving stress from other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. By providing cushioning, support, and proper arch support, custom foot orthotics offer comfort and evenly distribute body weight, eliminating pressure on the feet.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Custom foot orthotics are specifically crafted to fit the contours of your feet and are placed inside most types of shoes. They are tailored to your unique movement patterns and can assist in relieving discomfort associated with walking and address imbalances that contribute to pain. One of the significant advantages of custom orthotics is their versatility, as they can be worn daily and during various activities.
While over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at drugstores, they lack the precision and customization of prescription orthotics. These generic inserts rarely provide an optimal fit or the personalized support needed for your feet.
If you’re interested in incorporating orthotics into your treatment plan, it is recommended to consult with a trusted chiropractor. Schedule an appointment to discuss how custom orthotics can alleviate your discomfort and improve your overall foot function.
