Many times, if not all, we take advantage of the comfort our feet brings until we experienced issues with it. Lower limb and foot problems can harm your spinal health, which can in turn affect the rest of your body. For residents in Aberfeldie, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. We recommend that you ask yourself the following questions:
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then claim your FREE foot scan on the Foot Levelers digital scanner. This will determine if orthotic therapy is right for you. Insoles that you buy off the shelf are not custom made. You wouldn’t wear glasses from another person, so why put insoles not made for you?
Like our eyewear, insoles must be customised. Therefore offering the best possible support and relief from the symptoms and conditions mentioned above is something you will benefit from.Orthotics can support your the foot, legs knees, hips, and back. Orthotics can support you to improve and maintain your posture.
Your healthcare provider may recommend orthotics if you have Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, or runners knee. Even if you don’t have these conditions, your healthcare provider can still recommend orthotics, especially if you feel pain in your feet or ankles.
Technically speaking, orthotics can be used in any shoe. But it depends on what type of shoe you use and how comfortable they are. Many people find that shoes with a higher heel counter (the part that comes up around your ankle) work better with orthotics, as they keep the orthotics in place. It is important to ensure that your orthotics do not make the shoe tighter than necessary.
Custom orthotics are designed to ensure it fits your feet. They are made based on your foot structure, gait, and measurements. This ensures that they provide the optimal support for your individual needs. Over-the-counter orthotics, on the other hand, are mass-produced and may not be a good fit. Although they can still provide some benefits, they are unlikely to be as helpful as custom orthotics.
The length of time your orthotics will last varies from person to person and depends on how often you wear them and the type of activity you do. Orthotics can last as long as 10 years if properly maintained. The top cover may start to wear out over time and will need to be replaced before the orthotics themselves need to be replaced.
There are different styles of orthotics available, depending on your individual needs.You can choose from full and half-length orthotics or slim orthotics to fit your narrower, lower, or more open shoes. Sports orthotics are also available for you to use while exercising or doing physical activity.
Orthotics may aid in relieving back pain. Orthotics are useful for correcting poor posture and alignment. They can also provide support for the spine and body.
Each person’s conditions will dictate the length of time that your orthotics should be worn. It is best to wear orthotics for as long as you need to get the desired result. It could last forever or for a shorter time, depending on your condition.
