What Orthotics Can Do For Your Body

Low Back Pain

There are many possible reasons for low back pain, but spinal strain and postural fatigue account for about 70% of cases not caused by more serious conditions.

Short Leg

Leg length inequality (LLI) is where one leg is either anatomically or functionally shorter than the other. This imbalance can cause pressure,stress, and pain in your knees, thighs, hips, pelvis and spine.

Knee Pain

There is no single cause for painful knee joints. But there are generally 2 types of contributing factors: traumatic and chronic. Your doctor will help determine the cause of your knee pain.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

The sacroiliac (or SI) joints are the link between your spinal column and pelvis. They help absorb damaging shock forces, and they also help stabilize the body and transmit weight to the lower limbs.

What Orthotics Can Do For Your Feet

Flat Feet

When a foot is severely pronated, or flat, it means its arches have fallen.Flat feet are less shock-absorbent for the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the entire body.

Chronic Ankle Instability

If your ankle frequently “gives way” while walking or during activity, or if you’ve suffered from multiple sprains, you may have chronic ankle instability.

Metatarsalgia

Metatarsalgia is pain in the ball of the foot. The soft, springy tissue beneath the foot is the support system for bones. With injury, wear-and- tear, or age, tissue deteriorates. Aches flatten, and toes may begin to crowd one another.

Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia is the soft springy tissue on the underside of the foot. With injury, wear-and- tear, or age, a painful, ongoing condition may result: plantar fasciitis.

Improving Functional Biomehcanics

Biomechanics refers to the body on the move. Everyday life puts the body under enormous stress. Because your feet are your body’s foundation, proper foot support is key to helping a body perform at its best.

When the Foot Hits the Ground, Everything Changes

Study after study has shown repeated impact between the foot and the ground can cause a wide range of injury, from stress fractures to cartilage breakdown, from shin splints to low back pain.

Better Posture

Your path to better posture is a quick and easy 3 step process:

  1. Adjust
  2. Support
  3. Rehabilitate

Enhancing Athletic Performance

High-impact sports can place the same amount of stress on the body as an auto collision. That’s why its so important for athletes, no matter their level, age, or experience, to take sscare of their bodies.
