Would Orthotics Help Me?
People, whose feet or legs are not in perfect alignment, often experience pain in other parts of their body. Your feet are your foundation. Orthotics correct the movement of the foot, and that relieves the problems in the legs and hips.
Wearing orthotic devices, also known as orthoses, inside your shoes can help your feet function better as you stand, walk, and run. Your podiatrist can prescribe orthotic devices, based on a specific diagnosis of your foot problem, and then have them individually manufactured from a mold of your feet. Feet are relieved of the chronic stress that results from abnormal movement and are usually relieved of pain, too.
