Orthotics cushion your feet – One of the biggest reasons to get customized orthotics is to help cushion your feet as you stand and walk on them all day. Many people suffer from bunions, gait abnormalities, drop foot, heel rolls and more. Imagine the amount of pressure that your feet endure day in and day out. Cushioned orthotics can help prevent you from getting sore feet, as well as prevent pain in your lower back, knees, hips, legs and neck.
Orthotics support the arches of your feet – Feet come in all different shapes and sizes. While some people may have high arches, others may suffer from flat feet. With customized orthotics, the arches of your feet can be adequately supported so you can absorb any shock and thereby prevent pain. Having proper support means structural and functional disorders can be corrected to align the feet to their optimum functioning position.
Orthotics correct biomechanical problems for better posture and gait – Essentially, when your feet are feeling good, so is the rest of your body. Your joints will be better aligned, which means all the moving parts of your body will be better supported and will feel less pain. Orthotics correct and improve foot structure and function to reduce fatigue and pain in the body that results from the resulting abnormal strain.
Orthotics help to evenly distribute your body weight – Some people may have uneven body weight distribution. In such cases, this can cause pressure points on the body, and therefore cause pain. Without proper alignment and biomechanics of the feet and ankles, the muscles need to work overtime to correct and support the skeletal frame. Orthotics can help take this pressure off, and therefore avoid unwanted pain in various parts of the body.
