Custom orthotic shoe inserts are individually made to fit your precise foot shape to correct many foot and ankle problems and help improve athletic performance. The optimal distribution of weight and pressure is imperative for the correct functioning of your feet and ankles. Fixing poor gait mechanics also properly aligns your spinal column and treats pain and discomfort in the knees, hips, and back.
Talk to your foot doctor about using custom orthotic shoe inserts for optimal foot and ankle health and to correct poor spinal alignment. Custom orthotics can be used to treat the following conditions, just to name a few:
Arch pain, discomfort, and improper pronation
Diabetic complications like foot ulcers and wounds that aren’t healing
Toe deformities like bunions and hammertoes
Nerve conditions like neuropathy and neuroma
Orthotic braces are also available to help increase stability for people suffering from weak ankles. Preventing falls in the first place is essential for avoiding foot and ankle injuries and maintaining overall health. A variety of foot and ankle physical therapy exercises are also a great way to increase strength and flexibility and help prevent debilitating falls.
