Orthotics are shaped insoles placed inside shoes for the purpose of restoring natural foot movement. This is necessary when the natural balance of the lower body has been disrupted by incorrect foot posture or irregular walking patterns. Orthotics help to realign the feet and ankles and restore deficient foot function, therefore, taking pressure off other parts of the body such as the knees, hips and low back. This will help reduce pain and prevent injury. By correcting misalignment in the feet, orthotics can also make chiropractic adjustments more effective and long-lasting.
Ask your provider if orthotics are right for you.
