When a patient is seeking chiropractic treatment for any kind of chronic pain, the cause is rarely located where the pain is felt. This is because the human body is a complex and profoundly interconnected mechanism, and a minor imbalance anywhere in the system can cause a chain reaction of other areas trying to compensate.
Nowhere is this more obvious than in the foot. If our bodies are buildings, our feet are the foundation, and any irregularity can throw the entire system off-kilter. Imbalances in the feet can destabilize or misalign the pelvis, hips, and spine, which often causes a domino effect of problems all the way up the body. One of the best ways to address these kinds of imbalances is with custom orthotics. At Toth Chiropractic, our team is thrilled to provide our patients with cutting-edge technology backed by nearly two decades of chiropractic experience.
Foot orthotics are devices designed to fit inside your shoes and correct imbalances in the foot. Being able to customize these devices to each individual’s unique needs is a huge part of why they are so effective. We take comprehensive digital scans of our patients’ feet and examine them to identify any areas that may be causing them discomfort. Our team then uses that information to create a final product that precisely addresses those problem areas.
Wearing these devices can help to realign the foot and ankle bones; stabilize the spine, pelvis, and lower back; and alleviate stress from the shoulders, neck, and back. Even better, these devices can be further customized to suit your activity levels and what types of shoes you typically wear.
Benefits of Orthotics
An orthotic’s contribution to your overall wellness extends well beyond simply being something more cushioned to slip into your shoe.
Patients can enjoy a wide variety of benefits when they utilize these products, including:
- Improved posture and stability: By addressing the imbalances that caused the cascade of misalignments in the body, we are able to create an equivalent cascade of corrections.
- Reduced stress on the body: When the body is forced to compensate for misalignments in its structure, the result is often more stress where it doesn’t belong. Correcting the root cause means removing those stress points.
- Pain relief: Almost without exception, the kinds of issues that custom orthotics correct will cause some kind of pain. When the body is no longer out of alignment and operating in ways it wasn’t designed for, the relief can be immense.
