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. 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 the pressure off other body parts such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of the 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. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress off the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by your chiropractor and can last well over a year in most cases. This is a great investment into your overall health and well-being from a biomechanical standpoint.
