Custom Orthotics

According to medical research, most cases of chronic back pain result from imbalanced or misaligned feet.

Orthotic devices can alleviate foot pain including:

  • Heel pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arch pain
  • Bunion pain
  • Pain resulting from running & sports
  • Excessive standing or walking & weight gain
  • Diabetic foot pain
  • Pain experienced by seniors whose feet change as they age

An orthotic serves to reposition and support the structures in the foot to restore balance and optimize biomechanical function to reduce injury and pain.

Symptoms of imbalanced and misaligned feet include:

  • Abnormal show wear, such as one side of the shoe sole wearing out faster than the other
  • Bunions
  • Chronic foot, heel, knee, or low back pain
  • Flat feet
  • Frequent ankle sprains
  • Gait abnormalities, such as feet point inward or markedly outward while walking
  • Shin pain
