Custom Orthotics (Shoe Inserts)
Many of the foot problems that we treat are due to faulty biomechanics. In other words, when the bones in your foot are not aligned properly it causes you to over compensate when walking or running. This can lead to painful foot conditions which include:
The most effective and simplest way to correct these painful foot conditions is with a custom orthotic. Just as prescription eyeglasses correct your vision, custom orthotics are inserts that fit into your shoes, that are custom molded to correct your faulty biomechanics. This reduces abnormal motion while you walk or run, and equally disperses pressure on the bottom of your feet.
Many of our patients not only receive relief from their foot pain, but also gain relief from their knee, hip and back pain. So, if you're suffering with foot pain, come in for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for custom orthotics.
