Why Custom Orthotics
Foot function is as unique as a fingerprint. Just like an eyeglass prescription, custom orthotics are designed to address each patient’s individual needs. The correction needed for the left and right foot can vary, and mass-produced insoles with generic support for only one arch can make pain and instability worse. They can undermine your adjustments and the success of your chiropractic care.
Custom orthotics come in a wide range of materials and styles to fit every patient’s lifestyle and needs. They can be modified to address issues like heel spurs and bunions that impact biomechanics so that they support the highest level of overall care.
Benefits of custom orthotics
Custom orthotics support the proper function of the 3 arches of the plantar vault, restoring healthy balance, alignment and stability throughout the body. They are a natural, non-invasive treatment for relieving pain and fatigue, restoring mobility and increasing range of motion.
Custom orthotics support a healthy gait cycle and help the body transfer weight properly during movement. This can help athletes achieve greater speed, agility and power for maximum performance.
The Connection Between Custom Orthotics and Low Back Pain
The feet are the foundation of the body. Many conditions, like overpronation or plastic deformation contribute to dysfunction farther up the kinetic chain. Instability of the feet cause abnormal force and excessive stress to be transmitted up through the body and is often the root cause of pain in other areas like the knees, hips and spine. Custom orthotics restore healthy body structure for optimal function, making them a key element of holistic care that treats issues at their source so that the body heals itself naturally.
Why Aren't Your Adjustments Holding Properly?
When the foot hits the ground … everything changes. No matter how skilled your adjustment, unless the body is properly supported from its foundation—the feet, it will revert back to previous patterns of instability. By restoring correct function of the plantar vault, custom orthotics support healthy reactions all along the kinetic chain. This helps balance and align the entire body, for adjustments that hold better, effective ongoing chiropractic care and greater patient satisfaction.
Who Should Wear Custom Orthotics?
Practically everyone has some degree of pronation and leg length instability and would benefit from the stabilization and support provided by custom three-arch orthotics. By alleviating excessive force to the muscles and joints, they can help mitigate future pain and lessen the risk of injuries. Custom orthotics are especially helpful for athletes, pregnant women, people who stand all day, and children whose bodies are in the crucial stages of growth and development.
