Custom Made Orthotics
If you experience foot pain, it can feel like your feet are on fire or you have pins and needles in your heels or balls of your feet. Foot pain can be a result of the way you walk, which means that essentially every step you take could be making your foot, leg and back pain worse. Custom orthotics are created to fit your foot uniquely, and correct the way your foot and ankle bones align when you walk. Balanced Health & Wellness can create your custom orthotic onsite while you wait.
Types of orthotics available at Balanced Health & Wellness:
Functional orthotics help your foot to sit in a neutral position, minimizing strain and reducing the need to compensate for abnormal foot alignment. When the tendons and ligaments surrounding the ankle are aligned correctly without compensation, this is considered a neutral position. Orthotics can help to relieve pain and decrease deformity.
Accommodative orthotics attempt to accommodate the foot instead of trying to force it into a neutral position, as is the case with functional orthotics. Some patients have deformities or conditions which prevent a functional orthotic from being effective in correcting foot misalignment, leading chiropractors to prescribe accommodative orthotics to reduce discomfort.
