WHAT ARE CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS?
Custom foot orthotics are medical devices that are custom-made 'foot supports' designed uniquely for your feet. They are intended to fit comfortably in your shoe to optimize the alignment and correction of the foot function to enhance the performance and biomechanics of your feet and body.
The reason people turn to custom foot orthotics is because everyone's feet are different. Custom foot orthotics then support the foot and the entire body. They help alleviate the pain and dysfunction that may occur from work-related stresses, such as standing all day, walking, running, and other physical activities.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS?
Anyone. Imbalances in the foot, such as fallen arches, can cause further problems with feet, hips, knees, and lower back. Foot disorders are very common and are the cause of much pain and limited mobility throughout the body.
Painful foot conditions are often a warning signal that can lead to other issues or complications. If left untreated, foot disorders can leave your body over-compensating, which leads to other physical syndromes, injuries and misalignments throughout the body.
Proper foot alignment is an essential component to achieving optimal health and improving your quality of life.
The solution is custom foot orthotics, made especially for you. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic care, custom foot orthotics are used to treat a number of problems, such as:
- localized foot, heel or arch pain
- plantar fasciitis (heel pain or bone spur)
- Achilles tendonitis
- metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
- flat feet
- recurring ankle sprains
- knee pain
- hip pain
- low back pain
Building a strong foundation often begins at the feet.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS?
Just like the importance of having a strong foundation of a house, your feet are the support and foundation of your body. If the foundation is weak, the rest will suffer.
At Towne Centre Chiropractic, we create a highly personalized health care experience. Dr. Kendra Brough will work with you to determine if foot orthotics are the right fit for you.
ARE CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS COVERED UNDER PERSONAL INSURANCES?
Yes, most extended health care plans include some coverage for custom orthotics. Please check your health care plan for the amount of coverage, and if they require a medical doctor's prescription.
By properly taking care of your feet, the rest of your body will thank you. Happy feet make for a happy, healthy body.
