Many times, if not all, we take advantage of the comfort our feet brings until we experienced issues with it. Your spinal health can be affected by foot and lower limb problems. This can have an impact on your entire body. For residents in Brunswick, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. We recommend that you ask yourself the following questions:
If the answer to any questions is “Yes”, then its time to try our FREE foot assessment and our Foot Levelers 3D digital scanner to determine if orthotic therapy would be beneficial to your feet. Insoles purchased off-the-shelf are not tailored to your needs. Getting sole liners off the shelf is not a good investment as they aren’t custom-made for your needs.
Like glasses, our insoles are custom-made from a specific prescription. Therefore offering the best possible support and relief from the symptoms and conditions mentioned above is something you will benefit from.Orthotics can assist to relieve pain in the feet legs, hips, knees, hips and back. Orthotics can support you to improve and maintain your posture.
Orthotics may be prescribed by your healthcare provider if you have a condition like plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis. If you have pain in your feet, ankles or legs, you should talk to a professional.
Although orthotics can technically be put in any shoe, it all depends on how fit and comfortable they are. Orthotics work best in shoes that have a higher heel counter. Orthotics should not be too tight. This can lead to more problems.
Your orthotics are custom-made to fit your feet. This is done based on precise measurements and analysis of the foot structure and gait. They will provide the most appropriate support for your needs. In contrast, over-the-counter orthotics are mass-produced and often do not provide a perfect fit. While they may still offer some benefits, they are unlikely to be a good tool for your feet’s needs as custom orthotics.
Your orthotics’ lifespan will vary from one person to another. It depends on how frequently you wear them, and what type of activities you engage in. If they are well cared for, orthotics can last between 5 and 10 years. 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 many options for orthotics depending on your personal needs.These include orthotics that are full or half-length, orthotics that can be worn with closed shoes, and orthotics that can be used during exercise and physical activity.
Orthotics can alleviate back pain in some cases. Orthotics can correct bad posture or alignment to relieve pain and provide support.
Each person will have a different need for orthotics, thus it depends. It is best to wear orthotics for as long as you need to get the desired result. You may need to wear them for an extended period, or you might only need them for a short time. It all depends on your particular situation.
