Remember that your feet support the whole of your body whenever you walk or stand.

Keeping your feet properly aligned directly affects your quality of life. Foot pain keeps millions from getting the physical activity they need for proper health. This is very important not only to older people, who commonly suffer from foot-related ailments, but also athletes and those who spend time on their feet. Physical activity is important to your health, and foot pain can prevent you from getting the workout your body needs.

A foot misalignment can lead to other physical problems besides foot pain:

  • arch & heel pain
  • tired feet & legs
  • hip misalignment
  • knee pain
  • shin splints
  • lower back pain
  • flat feet
  • the list goes on

Indications for Foot Orthotics:

  • Improper Biomechanics
  • Foot Problems
  • Sports Performance
  • Shock Absorption
  • Arthritis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Uneven Leg Length

Foot orthotics take various forms and are constructed of various materials.

All have the goal of improving foot function and minimizing stress forces that could ultimately cause inefficient biomechanics and pain.
