Custom foot orthotics are prescribed inserts for footwear with the intention of providing support, aligning the foot in a mechanically stable and efficient position, and accommodating deformities that may be causing pain and discomfort.
The foot is a complex region of the body, given equally complex and demanding tasks. The bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves in the foot are responsible for providing the foundation and support for the body as we stand, walk, run, jump and navigate everyday life. Foot pain and discomfort can arise from a variety of conditions and has the potential to lead to altered mechanics impacting the ankles, knees, hips and back.
Your chiropractor at Toned Fx will perform a focused assessment of the foot and lower limb in order to provide a diagnosis and recommendations as to if custom foot orthotics may be beneficial for you. Common conditions that may benefit from custom foot orthotics include:
- Plantar fasciitis
