The structure of your foot supports your entire weight. The slightest misalignment of muscles and bones can cause many different problems. The symptoms of faulty foot mechanics may begin with the following: Localized foot pain; bunions, hammer toes, arch, heel pain, leg, knee pain, hip or back pain, even neck pain or headaches.
Prescription Orthotics are custom made appliances designed to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on the feet in much the same way braces work on your teeth – by exerting a gentle consistent pressure to bring foot muscles and bones back into proper alignment. They are always made from custom precise impressions taken from your feet. Orthotics are worn in your shoes with your feet resting comfortably on the orthotics and will place your feet in the proper position for walking, running and standing.
