Our custom orthotics are casted and/or scanned at our office, an x-ray of the hips are taken to determine if you need an additional lift or elevation.
This is what makes us unique from custom orthotics you buy at your local store–we look at your feet to determine if you have pronation or supination, we look at your x-ray and determine your orthotics based from a radiological technolgy. We then order your patent leather pair of orthotics to fit in any shoe you wear!!
Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include, but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. A recently published academic article which stated the short leg or misaligned pelvis directs 3x the amount of body weight on that same affected leg. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. 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 back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
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. They are also beneficial in relieving diabetic neuropathy. Another 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.
This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.
