What Are Orthotics?
Foot orthoses (a.k.a orthotics) are custom foot supports designed to balance the biomechanical inefficiencies of your feet and legs. They are commonly used to correct abnormal foot and lower extremity function by reducing the strain on injured parts, allowing them to heal over time.
They are made to match the contours of your feet precisely and also take into account the way that you walk as well as any medical conditions you may have. The material used to make them is relatively rigid and durable for maximum comfort which also helps to reduce any irritation to your foot.
What Can Footmaxx Orthotics Help With?
In general, orthotics can:
- Improve the overall health of your ankle and foot
- Help alignment in the lower extremities and help support the upper body
- Prevent degenerative conditions and deformities in the foot
More specifically, orthotics is used to treat a wide range of health ailments, such as:
- Ankle pain
- Heel pain
- Foot pain
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Diabetic foot ulcers
They have been proven to correct foot, ankle and knee problems before surgery is needed and last many years – depending on your prescription – before its necessary to replace a pair.
Adapting to Foot Orthoses
If you haven’t used orthotics before, you should know that it may take a while to adapt to them completely. Some people may become comfortable wearing them quicker than others, but it is generally recommended you start out by using them a few hours or more a day.
People playing sports or engaging in other extended periods of activity shouldn’t use them while doing so unless they are completely comfortable and don’t cause any pain or irritation.
You can expect some blisters when initially using the orthotics; however, it is a small price to pay for the alignment corrections and preventative purposes that they bring over the long term.
Revelation Health Centre Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic is located in the Hillhurst / Sunnyside area of northwest Calgary, also known as the Kensington district. See our Location and Hours here.
