Custom Foot Orthotics
Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to ankle alignment, including its relationship to the knee, hip, and lower back pain. They can help to realign the bones in the foot and ankle, and take stress off other parts of the body, such as the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Orthotics also cushion your feet, provide comfort, support your arches, and evenly distribute your body weight to eliminate excessive pressure on the arches of your feet.
How Do Orthotics Work?
Foot orthotics are made to fit inside most shoes (not heels or Ugg boots). They match the contours of your feet and are designed for the way your ankle should be stabilized and how the bones of the foot should move.
Orthotics can help anyone with discomfort relating to walking, or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. A tremendous benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and utilized during most activities.
Orthotics can be prescribed by your chiropractor, and last about a year. While over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at most drugstores, they lack the custom-built precision of the Aline Orthotic. While these ‘one-size-fits-all’ inserts match your feet and shoe size well, they will feel like customized support.
