The structure of your foot supports your entire weight. The slightest misalignment of muscles and bone can cause many different problems. The symptoms of faulty foot mechanics may begin with any of the following:
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammertoe
- Arch, heel pain
- Leg, knee pain
- Hip or back pain
Prescription orthotics are medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on the feet in the same way braces work on the teeth – by gentle consistent pressure to bring foot muscles and bone back into proper alignment. They fit comfortably in shoes and are usually made of flexible molded thermoplastic. The devises are always made from custom precise impressions taken of your feet.
Your feet are the foundation of your entire body. They do an incredible amount of work each day. The smallest imbalance can cause a great deal of discomfort, but properly fitted prescription orthotics help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body and bring relief from fatigue and pain. Orthotics are so comfortable, and help your feet work so naturally that you will want to wear them as much as possible.
