Custom Orthotics at Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic
Many of the aches and pains plaguing various parts of your musculoskeletal system could all originate from the same place: your feet. Abnormal arches, unequal weight distribution, and an unbalanced body can cause all sorts of chronic discomfort. The good news is that your foot issues can be corrected safely and non-surgically, with custom orthotics from Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic in Richmond Hill. These personalized pieces of footwear can help you enjoy a functional, comfortable life again.
How Orthotics Correct Alignment Problems
Your feet are tasked with supporting the entire upright weight of your body whenever you stand, walk, or run. They can perform this impressive balancing act because of the three arches that help to distribute the weight evenly across the foot, but all arches are not created equal. Some people have unnaturally high arches, while others have "flat feet." Some peoples' ankles tilt inward, while other people's feet tilt outward. These and other issues can cause your entire alignment to fall out of balance. As other weight-bearing joints become affected, you can experience problems such as:
- Poor posture
- Back pain
- Chronic muscle strain
- Sciatica and other forms of nerve impingement
- Plantar fasciitis (chronic pain along the bottom of each foot)
- It's worth noting that the opposite also holds true; sometimes an imbalance in the upper boy can contribute to arch strain and foot pain.
Orthotic footwear is designed to compensate for these imbalances. By giving your feet the right support and cushioning in the right places, these inserts can ease stress in your feet while also straightening out your weight distribution.
Our Richmond Hill Chiropractor Offers Orthotics for Your Unique Feet
As effective as orthotics can be in addressing foot pain and related discomfort, one size most definitely does not fit all. The supports you find in a typical drugstore are generic in design, meaning that they can't necessarily provide your feet with the right kind of reinforcement and relief. By contrast, Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic offers fully customized orthotics. Our Richmond Hill chiropractor can take accurate images of how your feet distribute your weight as you stand. We then have your orthotics fabricated to exact specifications, resulting in unique appliances that suit your individual feet perfectly.
