A staggering number of Americans experience foot pain in their lifetime. According to a survey by the American Podiatric Medical Association, 77 percent of people said they had or are dealing with foot problems. This pain may occur for several reasons including heredity, injuries, and obesity. When you have foot pain, it can severely restrict your activities and cause improper balance.
Our chiropractor at Herron Family Chiropractic in Bowmanville can fit you with custom orthotics if you are struggling with foot pain and problems. Custom orthotics, also known as shoe inserts or arch supports, are designed to support problem areas in your feet. They can lift an arch, relieve heel pain, and help compensate for a toe joint deformity. They also function as shock absorbers, reducing pressure and stress in the foot and ankle.
The Benefits of Wearing Custom Orthotics
Custom orthotics can relieve a wide range of issues.
Custom orthotics provide cushioning and support as they redistribute the pressure that your feet experience during everyday activities. This is very helpful if you have arthritis or if you stand for significant periods throughout the day.
Reduce Back, Knee, and Ankle Pain
When you get custom orthotics, they can also help with:
- Back pain
- Ankle pain
- Knee pain
Foot problems often create pain and reduce mobility in these areas. Custom orthotics can help prevent these issues by returning your feet to their proper alignment.
Improves Athletic Performance and Overall Health
Foot abnormalities can affect how you play sports and get fit. Foot pain can impact everything from your golf stance, your ability to pitch, or your weekend cycling trips. Custom orthotics will help you overcome the pain that limits your performance.
How Custom Orthotics Fit Your Feet
When you visit our clinic for custom orthotics, the process is quick and painless. Your custom orthotics should fit comfortably and securely with your feet inside your shoes. The firm part of your orthotic should sit solidly in your shoe, without tipping or rocking.
