Biomechanics of Custom Orthotics
Your feet are the foundation of your body and affect the mechanical aspects of your joints and muscles. Watch this video to learn why your feet are so crucial to whole body health.
The Benefits of Custom Orthotics
Your feet are your body’s foundation, bearing all of its weight and keeping it stable. Any pain, deformity, or discomfort in your feet can compromise that stability and cause you to alter your foot alignment and/or normal gait, which in turn can lead to excessive stress on everything from your hip joints to your spine. When this happens, you may be tempted to solve your foot problems by picking up over-the-counter insoles. While that can certainly be cheap and easy to do, insoles and inserts from the supermarket or drugstore lack nearly every benefit that custom orthotics can deliver.
Here are just a few of the many advantages of custom orthotics over off-the-shelf shoe inserts and related products found at retailers:
“Custom” is the key benefit of custom orthotics: Using the latest technologies (such as weight-bearing scans, 3D imaging, or foam castings), your orthotics will be hand-shaped and crafted just for you. That way you can treat the source of your problem and not only the symptoms. Even if you aren’t exhibiting symptoms, but have neurological deficits or biomechanical issues, custom orthotics can be the solution to your unique problem, whether it's pronation, supination, flat feet, plantar fasciitis, or other issues.
Since your feet are called upon to support your body and your health throughout all types of activities, you can have multiple orthotics that are customized to an activity, as well as to your feet and individual issues. With Foot Levelers, you can be in comfort when you’re on your feet at work, engaging in athletic activities, or dressed up for a night out. We even offer the first and only custom orthotics system designed for the separate stages of pregnancy.
