We spend a lot of time on our feet, so it's important to make sure we have comfortable footwear. However, sometimes foot pain is inevitable. At Chiropractic First - Family Wellness Center in South Burlington, VT, we offer orthotics to help relieve foot pain from everyday tasks.
What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are devices that go inside your shoes to provide better surfaces for you to stand on. They are designed to correct the shape of your foot to reduce pain in your feet, legs, and lower back. This is a particularly helpful solution for people with flat feet or especially high arches.
While there are cheap orthotics you can buy at department stores, orthotics need to be high-quality to be effective. Our chiropractor offers custom Foot Levelers orthotics to relieve pain. It's important that these inserts are made to fit the specific shape of your foot, because an incorrectly shaped orthotic could lead to more pain in the long run.
Why Are Orthotics Important?
If you've never taken the time to research your gait and foot shape, you might not know how important orthotics are. You spend a lot of time on your feet, so you need to be comfortable standing and walking. However, each step you take affects the rest of your body, which means your foot pain could eventually translate into lower back pain. In some cases, you could even suffer a serious foot, ankle, or leg problem as a result of not having the right orthotics. If you want to stand and sit comfortably and prevent back, leg, and foot pain, orthotics are a huge help.
