Benefits of Orthotics
Orthotics are shoe inserts that are intended to adjust any abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. They perform functions that make standing, walking and running more comfortable and efficient by altering the alignment between the foot and the lower leg.
Orthotics not only provide relief for painful foot problems and injuries, they also benefit people who must walk or stand for long periods of time at work. For people who are active in sports they can help increase endurance, performance, and strength. For people with weight issues orthotics can help to counteract the extra stress on feet, as minor problems are usually magnified due to increased weight. Orthotics can also help relieve foot fatigue and discomfort in older adults who have developed arthritis in their feet.
