Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your foot, subtle changes in the way you walk create a chain reaction that affects your posture and the mechanics of how you walk. These changes place stress on the joints higher up in your body. This may lead to foot pain, knee pain, hip pain or back pain.

What Is A Custom Orthotic?

Custom orthotics are a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.

Who Needs Custom Orthotics?

Your chiropractor can prescribe custom orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance. You can help your chiropractor by discussing any nagging foot, leg, or back problems, and even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem.
