Who We Help
Orthotics are an accessory inserted into shoes to create the perfect fit. Most people’s feet are not perfectly aligned with one another.
Orthotics correct the biomechanics of the foot, for optimal landing and propulsion, better posture and better balance. Insoles are also shock absorbers and reduce pain throughout the body (feet, knees, back), for increased comfort and performance.
Who Needs Orthotics?
Most people have some sort of structural or functional imperfections in their feet, which do not always result in pain on a daily basis. Over the years, however, neglecting foot problems can lead to chronic pain, particularly in people who are physically active, or spend many hours a day on their feet.
Many athletes (amateur and professional alike) have foot problems that cause pain and injuries that ultimately harm their performance. Structural or functional foot problems directly affect other parts of the body, including the knees, pelvis, hips and spine, and can cause other physical ailments that drag on for years, such as heel spurs, stress fractures, muscle pain, inflamed tendonitis, repetitive sprains, leg pain in diabetics, back pain, sore knees, etc.
If you can see uneven wear on the heels of your running shoes, or excessive wear on your regular shoes; if you suffer from pain in any of the above-mentioned areas, you could probably benefit from orthotics. In many cases pain and suffering are unnecessary and can be relieved quickly and efficiently with properly fitted orthotics.
