Our Oakville Chiropractor Dr. Brian Huggins is often asked if orthotics would be a good solution for his patients and what is the benefit of being casted and fit for Orthotics. Have a read to understand the benefits of wearing Orthotics!
Orthotics are custom inserts that can be placed directly into shoes to correct dysfunction in the feet and ankles. Foot Orthotics can help to reduce foot pain caused by medical conditions such as arthritis, bunions, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, diabetes and other aches and pains in the body (not just the feet). These inserts can offset pressure that is exerted on the feet when walking in return decreasing pain and allowing for proper function. Unlike conventional shoe inserts that can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart or other pharmacies, custom orthotics are personalized to match your unique foot structure, making each one different for every person.
What are the benefits of custom Orthotics?
- Custom Orthotics help provide superior comfort allowing you to stand, walk, and run comfortably
- Assist in fighting off pain in the foot, ankle and leg
- Improve balance by allowing your feet the necessary support to maintain a functionally correct position.
- Enhance athletic performance. Lowers the risk of injury
- Improves posture and gait patterns
