Our feet do so much work in the run of a day! They move us where we want to go, absorb the shock of 4-9 times our body weight in every step we take, have to manoeuvre over all sorts of surfaces, and they have to do all this while supporting our body weight! It is no wonder that problems with our feet have far reaching effects all over our body.
Prescription orthotics are insoles that are custom molded to the support requirements of your feet. They help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities and they absorb shock from the ground to reduce stress and strain on your feet and ankles and the rest of your body.
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
Localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, flat feet or high arches, arch/heel pain, leg/knee pain, hip/back pai.
Ask your chiropractor if custom foot orthotics can help you.
