Orthotics help your feet in a variety of ways, all depending on what they were made to do. They alter the angle at which your foot strikes the ground, allowing them to correct biomechanical issues. By correcting your foot strike, they make sure your foot functions correctly and doesn’t become overworked performing normal daily tasks, like walking. This can help alleviate pain from Achilles tendinitis, heel pain, bunions, arch issues, and a few other conditions. In some cases, they can add stability and alleviate swelling. They can also add a layer of protection and padding between your feet and the ground to help you absorb shock more efficiently. All of this together not only benefits your overall foot health, it can actually improve pain and problems in the knees, hips, and even the back in some cases. All of these benefits come from the truly custom variety of orthotics, of course. Our team at Absolute Foot Care Specialists are more than happy to help prescribe you a pair if you need them.
