Love Your Feet: Specialized Orthotics & Why They Rock

Get Support..for Your Feet

specialized orthotics

These boots may be made for walking, but if they don't fit right, they won't be going anywhere far. Meet custom orthotics. Supports that fit inside the sole of any shoe, specialized orthotics are customized to the unique foot structure of each person and help to correct the alignment of the spine and body. Orthotics also provide superior comfort and support for walking, running and completing everyday tasks. Feet are the foundation of the body, and giving them the support they need will benefit your health routine daily. 

High or low arches in the feet are extremely common foot issues that can cause pain the more you move throughout the day. Over-the-counter shoe inserts can be used to provide support and cushioning, but they are not as efficient and helpful as customized orthotics. Orthotics are designed specifically to treat the foot issues you may be having by matching the contours of the feet precisely and made for the way you move.

Benefits of specialized orthotics include improved performance and pain relief that may occur due to foot issues like plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendonitis, diabetic foot ulcers, and foot, ankle and heel pain. They are also often used to treat other areas of pain besides the feet including the knees, hips and back. The way you walk effects other areas of the body like this, which is why having the right support is so important.

A prescription orthotic is also beneficial because it’s made specifically for you and the exact shape of the foot. After getting prescription orthotics, they can last years before having to be replaced. This alignment then improves stability, balance and overall performance. It’s important to see a chiropractor about this because foot problems could be the underlying reason behind other areas of pain in the body due to improper alignment.
