A Good Foundation
When our back hurts, we usually assume there’s a problem with our back. While this may sometimes be the case, often the problem actually lies within our feet. Proper alignment starts in the feet and if our feet aren’t supporting our body’s weight properly, we start to see problems elsewhere like our hips or back.
A good analogy is to think of your body as a house! If your upstairs window won’t close and you know there’s nothing wrong with the window itself, it makes sense to consider that the foundation of the house might be what’s causing problems upstairs.
Our feet actually have 3 arches with 26 bones each. Aligning these bones while supporting and strengthening these arches will result in better total body alignment.
Foot biomechanics play a vital role in the way the body moves and functions. A custom foot orthotic is a biomechanical insole achieving alignment of the foot and ankle and an anatomically efficient position.
Custom Foot Orthotic Made Just For You
A Custom-made orthotic comes in any shape or size you need it in, and fits most shoe types. Technology has come a long way both for taking measurements of the foot as well as crafting the orthotics themselves. Here at Aspire Physiotherapy, we use the Orthotic Group, a leader in orthotic manufacturing. The best part about having your orthotics custom-fit is that these devices are made precisely for your foot, unlike the inserts you find at the store.
Having an insert expertly made just for you will give you the maximum benefit that orthotics can offer.
Custom-made orthotics or ‘stabilizers’ work by acting a bit like an exoskeleton providing strategic support to relieve pressure and allow the foot to relax. With the foot relaxed and property aligned, movements become more fluid and pain is decreased.
If you’ve noticed a change in what’s known as your gait or the way you walk or you’re tired of not doing anything about your constantly aching feet, there’s good evidence that these orthotics can help you. If issues are left untreated, it could develop into painful conditions over time.
For patients experiencing painful conditions such as foot pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, capsulitis, calcaneal apophysitis or other associated problems, about 80% will find their pain is resolved by their orthotics.
Custom Orthotic Assessment
Your orthotic evaluation will involve a thorough history and complete biomechanical assessment including a clinical gait analysis, and the creation of a 3-dimensional mould of your foot. Your custom-made prescription orthotic will be unique to your condition, activity level, and to the footwear in which you will use them.
Over a million points of data are recorded, tracking minor flaws in your biomechanics and shedding light on issues that if left untreated, could develop into painful conditions over time.
