Maintaining healthy feet and ankles is a vital factor in ensuring an individual can stay fit and well. Orthotics are a practical everyday device that are designed to decrease pain in lower limbs by reducing force in the joints of the ankle and foot. By redistributing pressure on the feet, orthotics can biomechanically alter posture, gait and weight distribution, enabling better functioning, and keeping you on your feet!
What to Expect
An assessment will determine your suitability for orthotics by understanding the existing function of the foot. Next, if recommended, your Ivanhoe chiropractor issuing the orthotics will tailor a device to your needs. Orthotics are molded to your feet specifically, and an adjustment period will be scheduled for you by your Chiropractor.
How Can Orthotics Help You?
Orthotics can assist an individual to walk and run comfortably and mechanically correctly, leading to the redistribution of pressure and force placed on the feet. The primary benefit of orthotics is that they can reduce excessive stress on the feet, as well as reduce pain and the risk of future injuries.
Orthotics are prescribed to a range of patients of all ages and activity levels. Your Ivanhoe Chiropractor at Atlas Chiropractic Body Clinic is guaranteed to issue orthotics that accurately suit you, treat your condition and improve your walking and running comfort.
