Foot issues are also the result of back pain or other upper body pain that can increase over time if not treated.
Your feet may seem like stable body parts, but they are more delicate than you think. Flat feet are the result of many cases of joint pain. Also, the impact of your feet on the ground can quickly lead to back pain if you are suffering from some sort of foot problem and are walking around for an extended period of time. Luckily, Orthotics can help this problem.
Orthotics are meant to help control an extremity or body segment to aid in rehabilitation or long-term corrective treatment. Orthotics are more than just corrective for the feet; they also work as pelvic stabilizers, leading to overall spinal alignment.
The reason they can be so beneficial is because they continue treatment even when the patient is not in the chiropractor’s office. Over time, orthoses can lead to full recovery, posture restoration, and more.
Orthotics are not just shoe inserts that you can pick up at a local grocery store. Some examples of well-made, custom orthotics include:
As you can see, there are many uses for these custom devices that all play a part in maintaining your spinal health.
Orthotics also refers to the all-encompassing medical specialty involving the design and manufacturing of those devices. If you’re considering orthotics as a form of treatment or want to learn more about their benefits, you can contact our office for a free consultation and we’ll help determine if orthotics is the right fit for you.
