Many people with arthritis foot pain benefit from orthotic inserts. Orthotics is the learning of constructing or custom designing foot appliances such as arch supports, shoe inserts, shoes, etc., to aid in preventing and correcting deformities that may inhibit normal, comfortable movement in a person.
Orthotics also assists in supporting and properly aligning the foot to help improve the overall function of the body’s moveable part. Orthotics in Bowmanville has come to describe a wide range of products designed to deliver foot support and comfort.
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored. It can lead to complex problems that can affect the functioning of other parts of the body, including the hips, knees, and back. Foot-related problems are often treated very successfully with functional orthotic shoe inserts.
Orthotics is prescribed to:
1) Reduce pain
2) Provide support
3) Prevent or slow down the development of a foot deformity
4) Provide better positioning of the foot, knee and hips
5) Recover the overall biomechanical function of the body
Many providers now create orthotics or inserts claiming to be orthotics. Beyond podiatrists, some orthopedic surgeons, and traditional orthotists/pedorthists, orthotics are offered by physical therapists, chiropractors, shoe stores, and self-described insert stores.
