Like the foundation of your home, your feet offer a structural support for your skeleton and spine. Problems in your feet can have a huge impact on your spine’s ability to respond to chiropractic adjustment. At Happy Family Wellness Clinic, we offer high-quality custom foot orthotics to help minimize the effects caused by an unfit ankle and foot function.
What are the Benefits of Custom Foot Orthotics?
The root cause of many conditions and symptoms is joint immobility, and poor biomechanics.
Foot orthotics are crucial for correcting the improper structures and biomechanics of obvious foot problems as well as relieving ankle and knee pain, hip, pelvis and spinal pain. This is accomplished by preventing misalignment of the foot which can hugely impact the way in which all bones move.
Orthotics are like the insoles that are inside your shoes. When placed inside the shoes, they help control abnormal foot motion. To design orthotics just for you, a detailed physical assessment is completed. Then, a prescription cast for the orthotics is created. Next, the manufacturer designs a computer-generated model from the data, and shapes the orthotics to provide proper control. Additional pads, liners and wedges can be added to make the product completely unique to your needs.
Even a minor abnormality in your feet can have a huge impact on your joints, causing chronic pain and discomfort if left neglected. These foot orthotics help to enhance performance and comfort for athletes, or individuals with active lifestyles. Diabetics suffering from circulatory problems can also benefit from custom foot orthotics Richmond Hill.
