If you have knee, foot, or lower back pain, you may want to look into orthotics. Orthotics assists in realignment of the shoulders, back, neck, and hips. In addition, they provide cushion for your feet and act as a cushioning support for your arches to help distribute body weight evenly. This in turn helps to eliminate pressure on other areas of the body.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Orthotics are helpful to anyone who experiences discomfort or pain when they walk. There are also imbalances that occur within the body that can lead to pain, and orthotics can assist with correcting those imbalances. Your chiropractor can prescribe custom orthotics to you that typically last over one year or longer. If you compare these to your typical over-the-counter inserts which are not customized and may fit poorly to your foot, you will see that trusting your chiropractor to fit you with a custom orthopedic is a great alternative option.
