Custom orthotics hold many benefits that extend well beyond helping to alleviate foot pain. In fact, they can help individuals become mobile once again, gaining an increased, confident, and pain-free stride. Whether we realize it or not, our feet go through a lot of wear and tear, and sometimes imbalances can create larger problems that affect the body as a whole. Custom orthotics are fitted to suit the individual’s needs, style, and preferences, supplying them with something that can help put them back on the right path.
The Importance of Custom Orthotics
While it is true that orthotics can be found in many stores, including drug and grocery stores, custom orthotics hold special benefits for those who take the time to get them. Custom orthotics are crafted to fit a specific person’s feet and are not made after general patterns. Therefore, you can rest assured that you will get something that is tailor made just for you, shaped to perfection, and crafted to fit the size and contours of your feet.
Diabetes, certain medical conditions, shoe styles, and an active lifestyle can all affect the feet and gait of individuals. It may even cause intense foot pain. In essence, custom orthotics, which are also referred to as arch supports or shoe inserts, are carefully crafted in order to support the feet and address any problem areas. For example, in addition to lifting and supporting the arches, they may also relieve foot and heel pain, or even help to balance a toe joint deformity.
The Many Benefits of Custom Orthotics
As previously mentioned, the benefits of custom orthotics affect many areas. Structural abnormalities may exist that cause pain and discomfort. Custom orthotics does not merely seek to remove the pain from foot abnormalities, but rather to address them head on, providing support at the points that need it the most and restoring balance to the feet, heels, and arches. More specifically, custom orthotics relieve pressure because they more evenly distribute the pressure experienced by the feet every day. This may especially benefit those who stand on their feet for large amounts of time or who suffer from arthritic conditions.
Beyond the feet, custom orthotics seek to address back, ankle, and knee pain. These three areas are dependent on the feet in order to stay properly aligned. In addition, when areas are not in proper alignment, range of motion is decreased. Thus, custom orthotics help restore proper structural support and proper alignment to the body.
