Over 75% of North Americans experience foot problems sometime during their life, however, only 30% every do anything about it. Most of us are happy to just kick up our feet and relax. This could be doing more damage than good, as your foot is healing into these contorted awkward positions – think about a broken nose not being set properly. These conditions can worsen overtime and cause serious/debilitating conditions/pain. In most cases, these conditions can be fixed at the source with custom fit orthotics.
Have pain in your knees, hips, or lower back? If you've tried everything, and nothing seems to be working, you may want to try custom fit orthotics. There are many connections between the pain you are experiencing and the stress you put your feet through. If your pain is due to your foot mechanics, orthotics can be a very effective way to relieve your symptoms.
Athletes are always looking for that 'edge' that will help them go farther, run faster, get stronger, or just increase overall performance. To find that edge, many athletes rely on custom orthotics to keep their foot in the most efficient position possible. This position usually helps to properly align the knees, hips and back, allowing the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments to work at 100% efficiency, prevent injury, relieve pain and increase efficiency.
We use our feet all day everyday, even if we're not working on our feet. This constant strain can begin to wreak havoc if we don't support ourselves. Many individuals employ custom-made orthotics in their shoes and sneakers to help absorb and distribute shock while providing relief from daily stress and injury. Our custom arch and heel cup does just that.
