What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are inserts for your shoes that are intended to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes the ground when you walk or run.
There are many over the counter shoe inserts and cushioning pads that can be purchased for foot fatigue. However true gait abnormalities can cause much more than tired feet, including ankle, knee and hip pain, lower back pain, plantar fasciitis, heal spurs, bunions and arthritis.
The use of Orthotics are to be considered more than just “arch supports”. Research and clinical practices have shown orthotics to be beneficial in the prevention and rehabilitation of many extremity conditions.
QUANTUM Custom Orthotics Solutions
At QUANTUM Health Solutions our specially trained Chiropractors will do a gait analysis (examine how you walk or run), then cast your feet for orthotics that are custom for your feet only. They use specific training and years of expertise to make additional adjustments to your orthotics based on your personal gait analysis, functional exam and symptoms.
By adjusting and correcting your foot strike and controlling pronation of your feet, custom orthotics can relieve pain throughout the body, alleviate tired feet, improve athletic training, performance, and decrease risk of bunion formation or heel spurs.
People of any age can benefit from orthotics, especially kids and teenagers. Correcting foot function at a young age can reduce the risk of sports injuries, growth pains and back pain, and the necessity of proper foot support through custom orthotics increases as we age.
If you are in need of custom orthotics, or if you wear custom orthotics that are old and need replacing, we can help.
