Custom foot orthotics fit into a pair of shoes like inserts you can find in a pharmacy, but are prescribed by a chiropractor to target a patient’s specific needs. When worn consistently, they often help realign bones in the foot and ankle. This can take pressure off of other problem areas like the back, neck, shoulders, and hips.
When a chiropractor prescribes custom orthotics, a foot impression is taken from the patient. This impression allows a custom product to me made for the patient’s particular needs. Orthotics are made to be worn on a daily basis during almost any activity, and one pair typically lasts over a year.
Custom foot orthotics are just one of many ways to care for your chiropractic health.
