There are many different reasons clients may benefit from the use of foot orthotics. In order to provide the best possible solutions and treatments for these issues and conditions, albeit due to a sports injury or a biomechanical abnormality, it is important that patients have access to orthotics that can be worn any time they are wearing shoes.
Whether a person is going for a casual walk or attending a formal dinner, correcting issues and conditions related to the feet, ankles, and legs needs to be a consistent process. If a person is only wearing foot orthotics part of the time and is going unsupported the rest of the time, correction is going to be a slower process. In fact, fully resolving the issue may not be possible if foot orthotics are only worn occasionally.
To prevent your patients from going without the support and assistance of their foot orthotics, it may be important to take a few key steps toward offering these customers both sport and dress orthotics.
Sport orthotics can be worn when the client or patient is engaged in physical activity, from standing and walking, to jogging and playing sports. Often, it is during such activity that the specific issue or condition may flare up. Therefore, it is crucial that the client has custom foot orthotics that can be worn at these times.
Dress orthotics, on the other hand, can be worn when going out to dinner, going dancing with friends, or attending a play or concert. In these instances, the orthotics can continue to provide the necessary support and correction to the feet throughout the evening.
You want to be sure that you are offering custom, stabilizing foot orthotics to those clients who could benefit from these medical devices. Once you have the technology on board to tailor foot orthotics to the needs of each individual person, then you can look into supplying your customers with orthotics for every occasion.
