- Why Orthotics?
- Stabilizing orthotics are prescription shoe inserts. They’re custom-made to easily slide into your shoes and support the unique shape of your feet.
- Just as everyone has a unique personality, everyone has a unique body structure and foot shape. The benefit of using custom-made orthoticsrather than generic, mass-produced ones is that they’re perfectly fitted to you.
- What Orthotics Do For Your Body
- Foot Levelers stabilizing orthotics were developed to improve your comfort level. These orthotics also help reduce low back pain, hip pain, and even neck pain.
Low Back Pain
There are many possible reasons for low back pain, but the spinal strain and postural fatigue account for about 70% of cases not caused by more serious conditions.
Sacroiliac Joint Pain
The sacroiliac (or SI) joints are the link between your spinal column and the pelvis. They help absorb damaging shock forces, and they also help stabilize the body and transmit weight to the lower limbs.
There is no single cause for painful knee joints. But there are generally 2 types of contributing factors: traumatic and chronic. Your doctor will help determine the cause of your knee pain.
Leg length inequality (LLI) can cause pressure, stress, and pain in your knees, thighs, hips, pelvis, and spine.
- What Orthotics Do For Your Feet
When a foot is severely pronated, or flat, it means its arches have fallen. Flat feet are less shock-absorbent for the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the entire body.
Chronic Ankle Instability
If your ankle frequently “gives way” while walking or during activity, or if you’ve suffered from multiple sprains, you may have chronic ankle instability.
The plantar fascia is the soft, springy tissue on the underside of the foot. With injury, wear-and-tear, or age, a painful, ongoing condition may result: plantar fasciitis.
Metatarsalgia is pain in the ball of the foot. The soft, springy tissues beneath the foot is the support system for bones. With injury, wear-and-tear, or age, tissue deteriorates. Arches flatten and toes may begin to crowd one another.
Upon the new patient exam we will perform a structural analysis of the feet with precise 3-dimensional scanning technology and coordinate it with the structure of the spinal column. This allows us to keep the two work synchronously with one another in order to keep your body feeling good and healthy.By keeping your feet stable, spinal health increases and allows the body to hold adjustments much more efficiently.
