Think about how much you use your feet in your everyday life. Even if you’re not a runner or an athlete, health professionals may have advised you to walk 10,000 steps every day. If you don’t wear shoes that fit correctly, you can suffer from blisters, soreness, and flare-ups of conditions like arthritis and plantar fasciitis. Even the best shoes may not provide the right amount of support in the areas your feet need it, which is why you should consider being fitted for a pair of custom orthotics.
Pain in your feet can drastically limit everyday activities. If you have arthritis, tendonitis, knee issues, or even lower back pain, custom-made orthotics can help support your feet so that the rest of your body is not always compensating for the pain. Just slip the custom orthotics into your different shoes like shoe inserts.
Whether you’re running, walking, jumping or climbing, your feet must adapt to different amounts of weight, stress, and pressure on a moment-to-moment basis. While feet come in all shapes and sizes, shoes are not as varied. Custom orthotics can be created specifically to fit your unique arch and gait, which will help prevent injury and alleviate pain from chronic foot conditions.
If you frequently find that your feet feel worse after wearing shoes, make an appointment with one of our experienced foot doctors to see if custom orthotics could help your feet feel better. Custom orthotics can be used to do the following:
