3 Ways Custom Foot Orthotics Alleviate Foot Pain, ,

People of all ages can suffer from foot pain. Stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, and tendonitis are just a handful of potential causes. Thankfully, custom foot orthotics can minimize the aching and sharp pains associated with these issues. Here are three ways these personalized inserts help. 

How Orthotic Inserts Can Improve Your Life

1. Supporting Your Unique Foot Shape

Do you have flat feet or high arches? Many people with these foot types suffer from pain because their shoes don’t offer adequate support. Custom orthotics supplement the padding in shoes to give you the perfect fit to naturally cushion the arch without providing too much or too little support. 

2.  Reducing Pressure Problems

foot painThese inserts are created after a structural and biomechanical evaluation, including gait analysis, that measures not only the shape of your foot but how you walk. These tests assess factors like insert length, density, and height to create the best fit for your needs. As a result, you'll have an easier time walking or standing.

3. Bettering Balance

Foot pain is sometimes caused by balance issues. As the body adjusts in different directions the feet must catch up in order to keep proper posture. When experiencing balance issues your feet may be working overtime stretching the tendons and ligaments in the ankle and lower leg to try to keep you upright which can cause foot pain. With custom orthotics, you’ll be better prepared to maintain your balance because foot pain is less of an issue, they can also help alleviate pain in the legs, hips, and lower back.
