Although there are many off-the-shelf braces, certain specific conditions may require a more custom approach to give you the most comfortable fit. What are the benefits of custom orthoses?
What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are inserts in footwear that are designed to support natural foot structure. They are designed to manage the patterns of stress and forces applied to the foot when moving. The stresses that are placed on our feet control the way we stand, helping or hurting the posture and the spine.
Over-the counter orthotic inserts are found in retail stores and online, but they usually do not solve all the problems your foot may be suffering from. That is because all feet are different, all feet have different preferences.
There are, however, custom orthotic inserts which are tailored to the unique needs of your feet. You can be sure that it will fit if you visit a skilled pedorthic care service . They provide support for each part of your foot, including the arches, which will give you the best mobility and posture you could have.
What are the benefits of custom orthotics?
- Reducing pain in the foot and lower back
- Promoting proper alignment of foot to leg
- Arch and heel support
- Callus and bunion prevention
- Disperses pressure from high stress areas of the foot
The first thing you should do when experiencing pain in the feet is go see your local pedorthist. They will give you a prescription on your feet which they will use to make your very own custom orthotics.
The best part of getting a custom orthotic is that you don’t need to have an actual medical condition to get one. The practice of pedorthics goes well beyond its medical history and into the realm of professional foot care over the last century or two.
