Many of the foot problems that we treatare due to faultybiomechanics. In other words, when the bones in your foot are not aligned properly it causes you to over compensate when walking or running. This can leadtopainful foot conditions which include:
as well as knee, hip and back pain.
The most effective and simplest way to correct these painful foot conditions is with a custom orthotic.
Just as prescription eyeglasses correct your vision, custom orthotics are inserts that fit into your shoes, thatare custom molded to correct yourfaulty biomechanics. This reduces abnormal motion while you walk or run, andequally disperses pressure on the bottom of your feet.
Many of our patients not only receive relief from their foot pain, but also gain relief from their knee, hip and back pain.
So, if you're suffering with foot pain, come in for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for custom orthotics.
