Foot orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment, including knee, foot, and lower back pain. They can help to realign the bones in the foot and ankle, and take stress off other parts of the body, such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Foot orthotics also cushion your feet, provide comfort, support your arches, and evenly distribute your body weight to eliminate pressure on your feet.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Foot orthotics are specially-made devices that fit inside most shoes. They match the contours of your feet, and are designed for the way you move.
Foot orthotics can help most people with discomfort relating to walking, or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. A tremendous benefit of foot orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and utilized during most activities.
Foot orthotics can be prescribed by your chiropractor, or recommended and purchased either online or at a local pharmacy.
