Custom Orthotics

Your feet are the foundation for a healthy posture! If the arches in one or both of your feet collapse (‘flat feet’), your body isn’t getting correct postural support. Orthotics work with your adjustments to help keep your body in proper alignment.

The foot bone is connected to the leg bone, the leg bone is connected to the hip bone, and the hip bone is connected to your back bone (spine), and even if your feet don’t hurt, the fact that your foundation has been weakened can have a serious impact to the rest of your body.

Most people suffer from pronation (loss of natural arch), which is caused by gravity, weight, sedentary living and the concrete we often walk on in modern life. This causes ligaments under the foot to become unstructured and loose and the muscles become weak. The lower an arch falls the less likely it is that they can be restored naturally. Feet with too much pronation become very sore and often deformed. Additionally, an improper arch or an unlevel pelvis can lead to hip, knee and low back pain. If you are currently having knee, hip, low back or neck pain, the reason may be because your feet are not supporting your joints, bones, or soft tissues above the ankle properly. This lack of support can lead to stress and pain in other parts of your body.

Orthotics

Our orthotics are custom made to your feet. A foam cast is used to make the impression of your foot. The cast is then sent to a specialized laboratory to fabricate the orthotic. The orthotics are made from a soft or semi-rigid plastic material to better address your specific needs.
