On average, a person walks for 1000 miles every year. These steps can put too much pressure on the feet, causing pain. Injuries can also cause pain in the feet. Custom-made orthotics are very effective when it comes to dealing with issues associated with alignment and walking.
Do you feel pain or discomfort on your feet and think that orthotics can be of help? At Total Body Healthcare, we offer custom-made orthotics designed to fit the structure of your feet and relieve pain caused by various conditions. Orthotics are good compared to other forms of treatment like surgery and medications since they are more natural. They also offer other benefits to the feet, such as providing comfort, on top of treating illnesses. We are located in Hermitage, TN.
How Do Custom Orthotics Work?
Custom-made orthotics are made to fit a person’s feet. They are designed in a way that they precisely match the foot’s contours. They provide cushion and comfort, which you cannot get from the inner soles of your shoes. Additionally, they promote proper foot alignment, relieving your pain and improving your range of motion.
Are Custom Made Orthotics Better Than Over the Counter Orthotics?
You can get over-the-counter shoe inserts at many different locations or custom-made orthotics from Dr. Ed. Each has its upsides and downsides. While over-the-counter orthotics are not as expensive as custom-made ones, they might not address your problem effectively. Custom-made orthotics are usually designed to fit the structure of your foot and correct the specific problem you have. Since we all have different foot structures, custom-made orthotics are always more effective.
Benefits of Custom Orthotics
There are several benefits associated with wearing custom-made orthotics including the following.
By providing extra support for your feet and ankles, you greatly reduce your chances of suffering from sprains, strains, and back pain. Wearing orthotics is particularly beneficial for those who actively participate in physical activities such as sports and exercise. People who have sustained prior foot injuries also benefit greatly from wearing orthotics.
Custom orthotics support and cushion the feet, relieving the pressure that causes pain. Orthotics can greatly help relieve pain caused by conditions like:
• Heel pain
• Flat feet
• Plantar Fascitis
Custom-made orthotics can also be used to encourage proper healing after surgery. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your condition to determine how you will benefit from wearing custom orthotics.
