What are Foot Orthotics

Customized orthoses, also known as contoured insoles, orthoses or insoles, are placed inside the shoe to restore natural foot movement. This is necessary when the natural balance of our lower body is interrupted by, for example, excessive internal rotation (rolling of the foot). The orthosis is designed to correct foot posture, abnormal or irregular walking patterns, and pain that is debilitating. Foot orthoses are more than just "foot arch supports," although this term is often used to describe them. They perform functions that make daily activities more comfortable and efficient by changing the angle at which the feet hit the ground while standing, walking, jogging, running and jumping. Ultimately, the orthosis provides appropriate support to improve foot mechanics, shock absorption, improve walking (gait) patterns and improve pain tolerance.

Why should I see the orthosis of the orthosis? Traditionally, most people go to a podiatrist or a chiropod to install an orthosis. and so. Why should I see the orthosis of the orthosis? Chiropractic treatment of the entire body can determine how the use of the Orthotics complements our treatment, for example, back, hip, knee or ankle problems, including short leg deficiencies. We also use specific mobilization and manipulation techniques on our feet to ensure that the area that limits movement is released, which will affect how your feet work and will help you better solve problems.

It is pointless to place the aligner in the shoe when the short leg differential correction using the chiropractic treatment is not considered to remove the foot restraint and perform specific exercises to strengthen the supporting musculature. For example, if you come to us to complain about back pain, we won't just give you a back support strap that will let you leave it. We combine operations and exercise to try to restore complete and normal function and give you an exercise program to strengthen the supporting core muscle tissue before opening any back support or foot orthosis. We apply the same principles to all muscle and joint problems that are very effective.

In general, the orthosis is much more than supporting the arch. The orthosis re-adjusts the foot and ankle and restores insufficient foot function. In addition, the orthosis can achieve a more uniform weight distribution, reducing the pressure on the heel, the soles of the feet, the toes, the toes and the pain in the soles of the feet. They also provide some degree of shock absorption, but this is not their primary purpose. The main purpose of the orthopedic insole is to improve foot function (double pedal stability), in many cases to reduce pain and prevent future problems and injuries.
