You feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. Because of this, small problems in your feet can lead to compensations in your posture and walking mechanics, which can later on develop into problems such as low back pain, iliotibial band syndrome, patellar tendonitis, shin splints, achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis.
Orthotics are custom made medical appliances designed to correct your specific foot imbalance; they work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes. By restoring the normal balance and alignment of your feet, they can help to reduce the stress and strain on the rest of your body.
If you have any questions on whether prescription orthotics are right for you, please book an appointment.
