What are orthotics and how might they benefit you?
Orthotic inserts are medical devices specifically prescribed by your chiropodist in order to correct and support the way you walk. They can be used to correct existing conditions, preventing existing conditions from progressing, and inhibiting new conditions from developing.
Custom made orthotics aren’t just for runners or people with severe foot issues. Anyone with foot pain or discomfort can benefit from orthotics. This pain may be caused by an imbalance, change in the foot structure, or injury. Further, people who walk or stand excessively at their workplace or people with a family history of foot problems can benefit, even if they don’t have any existing conditions.
Custom foot orthotics are commonly used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Flat or fallen arches
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel pain
- Hammer toes
- Arthritic changes
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Sprain and strain in foot and ankle
- Alignment issues
- Limb length discrepancy
- Corns and calluses
Orthotics work to restore your foot to its ideal position, enabling the muscles to work more efficiently. This reduces stress on the ligaments and tendons and keeps joints congruent. This process of offloading high pressure areas reduces arthritic pain, joint pain, and many other types of foot pain.
