Custom-cast orthotics (inserts, shoes and sandals) are constructed specifically to correct your foot and lower limb mechanics. Custom foot beds from a chiropractor can relieve arch and heel pain while properly aligning your body from the ground up. This ground up support can alleviate pain and dysfunction in your ankle, knee, hip and low back.
When working together with the right footwear, a foot orthotic is effective to treat several problems that could be bothering you. This includes:
Yes, they can be very helpful.. If your arches have dropped, or the biomechanics of your feet are altered, it can cause a change in how you walk and put pressure on your ankles, knees and hips resulting in lower back pain.
People should wear them for various reasons including: flat feet / fallen arches, heel spurs, plantar fascitis, over rotation, short leg syndrome and other biomechanical problems.
At our office, we use force plate analysis while you walk to determine what orthothotic is right for you.
The orthotics are made to the highest quality and meet and exceed industry standard for insurance companies.
We look at your history and do an examination of your spine and lower extremity. This will be followed by a computerized and weight bearing analysis of your foot.
If it is determined that an orthotic would be beneficial for you the computerize information is sent to the lab and the device is made specific to your needs.
Orthotics are custom made for your feet and any problems you have. The materials used are strong and durable, therefore, they can last for several years
