The foot consists of 26 bones and an array of muscles, ligaments, and tendons, which must support and balance your body weight. Any alterations in foot structure and alignment can have poor consequences for other joints in your body. Custom orthotics are supports which are worn inside the shoes to correct foot alignment issues which can cause biomechanical imbalances during activity. Consider a few of the important benefits of custom orthotics for feet and overall spinal health:
Custom orthotics are designed to provide support for the anatomical arches of your feet to give you more stability while you stand and walk. Custom orthotics will specifically help to correct misalignments in your problem areas and provide support along the surface of your feet. Unlike over-the-counter generic insoles, custom orthotics can correct foot abnormalities such as collapsed or high arches.
When your feet meet the ground, the actual force applied to the joints of your feet, legs and spine is equivalent to several times your weight. Over time, the wear and tear on the body’s joints can cause pain and soreness, especially for individuals who are overweight. Custom orthotics can help your feet support the force load of your body, distributing the pressure more evenly across the surface of your feet. Importantly, custom orthotics are also effective when your feet are different from each other.
Reduction Of Pain With Orthotics
Misalignments in foot structure can cause significant pain in other parts of the body. This happens due to increased strain on the ankles, knees, and lower back as the body struggles to adjust its biomechanical balance to compensate for the poor foot alignment. Custom orthotics can help to alleviate pain due to biomechanical misalignments and help to promote healing.
Custom orthotics can help to prevent and treat many types of muscle and bone problems, including injuries to the tendons, muscles, and joints, as well as stress fractures. According to research, custom orthotics can help to prevent injury such as medial tibial stress syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and knee pain. According to research findings, foot orthotics reduced the risk of injuries by 28%, and reduced the risk of stress fractures by 41%.
