No one enjoys having foot pain, but it seems to be something that a lot of people have to deal with at some point in their lives. If you're one of those people, then you know that it can be pretty hard to live your life when your feet are constantly hurting. There are several ways to deal with foot pain, one of which is wearing custom foot orthotics. Dr. David W. Kuo, D.C. has been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Pasadena, CA for many years. We can help determine if you're a good candidate for custom orthotics, and if you are, we can custom-make them to ensure they suit your specific needs. That way, you can get pain relief from foot pain, leg pain, and back pain.
What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are specially-made inserts that you can put inside of your shoes to help support the parts of your feet and legs that aren't working properly. They can be made out of a variety of materials, including soft rubber or stiff plastic, and will fit right into your existing shoes. Custom foot orthotics work by providing extra support and alignment to your feet, reducing the stress and pain you are experiencing.
Who Needs Orthotics?
Some of the most common reasons that people need orthotics are because they have flat feet, high arches, or pronation (which occurs when the foot rolls inward too much). Even if your feet are perfectly fine, our chiropractor can recommend orthotics to help you with back pain or other issues.
Benefits of Custom Orthotics
Here are just some of the ways that custom foot orthotics can benefit you:
- Relieve pain throughout the whole body: If your feet are hurting, it can cause pain in other parts of your body as well. Custom foot orthotics can help to take the pressure off of your feet, relieving pain throughout your body.
- Correct alignment and posture: If your feet aren't working properly, it's going to throw off your whole balance and posture. Custom foot orthotics can help to put everything back into place and improve how you walk and stand.
- Promote overall wellness: Research suggests that people who have issues with their feet or legs are more likely to get other health conditions as well. That's because the pain can cause stress, which leads to other problems over time. Orthotics can help to reduce that pain and keep you healthy.
- Prevent further foot and leg problems: If you have flat feet or high arches, orthotics can improve your condition. They can also help to prevent those issues from occurring in the first place. Over time, as you continue to wear them, your feet and legs will get stronger and be able to better support your weight.
