Why wear foot orthotics? Think about your feet. Are they the same as any other feet? No, we are all different but shoes are all made the same. So think of orthotics as a custom made bed for your foot that can be put in your shoe. They can be transferred from shoe to shoe so that you always have a custom shoe! Here are a few benefits of wearing orthotics.
1. Pain: Orthotics are not just for people with foot pain. You may suffer from knee, hip or even back pain and a custom made pair of foot orthotics may help decrease your pain.
2. Arthritis: Arthritis is something that we can not hide from. If you have arthritis in your foot, every time you step you could potentially be irritating it. Wearing a custom made orthotic can help you retain mobility and function.
3. Athletes or runners: Wearing orthotics can help align the foot to maximize the performance of your muscles. When you are in good alignment and efficiently using your muscles, it can help prevent injuries and pain.
