The structure of the foot supports your entire weight. The slightest misalignment of muscles and bones can cause many different problems.
The symptoms of faulty foot mechanics may begin with any of the following
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch, heel pain
- Leg, knee pain
- Hip, back, even neck pain
What are prescription orthotics?
Prescription orthotics are medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on the feet in the same way braces work on your teeth- by exerting gentle consistent pressure to bring foot muscles and bones back into proper alignment. They fit comfortably in shoes and are usually made of fleciable molded thermoplastic. The devices are always made from custom precise impressions taken of your feet.
How do orthotics help?
Your feet are the foundation of your entire body. They do an incredible amount of work each day. The smallest imbalance can cause a great deal of discomfort, but properly fitted prescription orthotics help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body and bring relief from fatigue and pain. Orthotics are so comfortable, and help your feet work so naturally that you will want to wear them as much as possible.
At Elder Chiropractic, we can help you with the process of getting your orthotics on your feet quickly, so you can live comfortably.
