Helping improve efficiency and minimize shock absorption through the lower extremities, custom orthotics reduce stress and strain on your entire body by placing your feet in the most optimal position possible. Comfortably fitting into your shoes like an insole, orthotics work to correct the alignment of your bones in order to improve the muscle imbalances and properly support the knees, hips, back and spine. With every step, your custom orthotics will support your feet and keep them in a neutral position to reduce the stress that is transmitted through the joints in your feet.
Custom Made Orthotics are specialized foot inserts that are designed to support and correct the arches of the feet and thereby relieve the pain a person may have in their back, hips, knees, and/or feet. Custom Made Orthotics are specifically molded to fit to each individual foot allowing them to be designed specifically for each foot’s degree of support. When an individual suffers with a low or fallen arch this causes a chain of unfavourable biomechanical events that travel up the joints and muscles of the lower limbs and into the hips and low back. By supporting the arches in the feet it allows a person’s feet, ankles, knees, hips and back to be evenly and correctly loaded during walking/running/standing. This optimal positioning allows for the body to effortlessly absorb the forces associated with daily life and exercise.
