Do I Need Custom Orthotics?
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
If any of the following symptoms preventing you from living the life you love:
- Foot pain
- Leg pain
- Lower back pain
- Hip pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch/heel pain
Custom orthotics can help you to get back on your feet pain free. Two feet at a time!
Will My Muscles Get Weaker Wearing Custom Orthotics?
Custom orthotics will not reduce muscles tone. They will help position your foot so you will be using the right muscles at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing your muscles to be used more efficiently.
What disorders and misalignments can be treated by custom orthotics?
Dr. Lingard prescribes orthotics to patients for various symptoms. Many medical conditions often stem from a biomechanical gait abnormality that can be treated with custom orthotics. The list of symptoms and conditions that can be treated and/or prevented by custom orthotics is very long. And not only limited to foot and ankle conditions.
