Orthotics Can Help Lower Your Pain

Orthotics are shaped insoles placed inside shoes with the purpose of restoring natural foot movement. This is necessary when the natural balance of our lower body has been disrupted by, for instance, over-pronation or the foot rolling in. Over pronation is more commonly due to the arch falling.

Many common complaints such as muscle pain, heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain can be caused by poor foot mechanics. As the arch falls, the lower and upper leg roll in causing the hip on the same side to lower. This side where the arch dropped will call raise the shoulder on the same side. A rotated foot can cause many other postural misalignments. This results in joint dysfunction and pain.  If left uncorrected, it may result in arthritis, sciatica, headaches and more.

Chiropractors treat the whole body and can determine how the use of orthotics can complement our treatment. We also use specific mobilization and manipulation techniques to ensure that areas of restricted movement are released, which will have an effect on how your feet are functioning, helping your problem resolve better. It doesn’t make sense to just put an orthotic in a shoe without both using manipulation to clear the restrictions in your foot and give specific exercises to strengthen the supportive musculature.

Dr. Brent is trained in fitting custom orthotics and can determine if you require orthotics.
