Foot Orthotics are a great way to help with problems related to standing, walking and over-all body alignment. Some of these problems include foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue called 'Pronation' which is a malfunction of the arches of the feet (also called 'falling' arches). Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure off other parts of the body such as the knees, hips, pelvis and lower back, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with whole body allignment and distributing your weight properly. This takes further pressure off of the neck, upper back and shoulders as well.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by your chiropractor. This is a great investment into your overall health and well being
