Your footwear is designed to protect the health of your feet, ankles and toes. In some cases, your feet may require additional support and cushioning. If you have constant foot pain, regardless of which shoe you are wearing you may want to consider custom orthotics. Custom orthotics are built specially for your foot and can provide the means necessary for fixing your foot pain.
Custom molded orthotics are designed to fit the exact shape of your feet. Orthotics, just like shoes, need to be specific to you, the shape of your feet and your medical history. Your orthotic device can give your feet greater arch support and cushioning for shock absorption. In addition, orthotics can lower your risk for developing an injury while reducing current pain levels in your feet and ankles.
Orthotics can also be used to correct the alignment of your feet and ankles as well as your entire skeleton. Feet are the foundation and keeping all the structure above in proper position can reduce many symptoms, such as back pain. If your alignment is off, many different kinds of pain can arise all over the body. Another great use for custom orthotics is for fixing foot deformities. By making a custom orthotic for a foot deformity, we can help people get their normal walk back. Custom molded orthotics work to improve the mechanics of your feet and ankles, which can improve your physical abilities and comfort.
