Sometimes, if not most of the time, we take our feet for granted until problems arise. Having issues with your lower limbs and foot can impact your spine’s health, which can affect your whole body. For residents in Niddrie, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. These are the questions you need to ask yourself.:
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 purchased off-the-shelf are not tailored to your needs. You wouldn’t wear glasses from another person, so why put insoles not made for you?
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. They aid in maintaining and improving your spine’s health and other parts of your body.
Your healthcare provider may recommend orthotics if you have Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, or runners knee. If you have pain in your feet, ankles or legs, you should talk to a professional.
Technically, you could put orthotics in any shoe, but it depends on the type and fit of the shoe as to how comfortable or manageable 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. Orthotics should not be too tight. This can lead to more problems.
Orthotics can be made specifically to fit your feet based on detailed measurements and analysis. They can provide the best support possible for you. Over-the-counter orthotics on the other hand are mass-produced, and they often don’t provide benefit. 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. Orthotics can last as long as 10 years if properly maintained. The top cover will eventually wear out and need to change before the orthotics can be replaced.
There are many different types of orthotics, each with its specifications.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 are useful for correcting poor posture and alignment. They can also provide support for the spine and body.
Each person will have a different need for orthotics, thus it depends. If you have been prescribed orthotics, you should wear them for as long and as necessary to achieve the desired effect. 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.
