Sometimes, if not most of the time, we tend to take our feet for granted until problems develop. Having issues with your lower limbs and foot can impact your spine’s health, which can affect your whole body. For residents in Strathmore, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. We ask you to consider these questions:
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, take advantage now of our FREE Foot Assessment and Foot Levelers 3D Digital Foot Scanning to find out if orthotic therapy might be the appropriate procedure for you. Insoles that you buy off the shelf are not custom made. You would not wear someone else glasses, so why would you put something under your feet that has not been designed specifically 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 alleviates pain throughout the feet, legs, knees, hips, and back. They can dramatically improve and maintain a healthy posture for your spine and the rest of your body.
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.
Technically speaking, orthotics can be used in any shoe. But it depends on what type of shoe you use and how 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 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 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 can be used to correct poor posture or alignment and offer support.
The length of time you will need to wear your orthotics depends on each person’s situation. It is best to wear orthotics for as long as you need to get the desired result. This could be forever, or it could be for a shorter time depending on your circumstances.
