What part of your body suffers the most physical stress daily? If you guessed your feet, you’re right. Most foot pain is the result of faulty alignment and function of bones and muscles of your feet. These imbalances cause excess stress on the knees, hips and lower back. Whether you are walking a mile, running a marathon or playing a leisurely game of golf, it is essential that your feet, knees and hips are properly aligned to prevent injury and help you perform your best.
Custom foot orthotics provide proper foot alignment and can help alleviate foot and lower extremity pain.
They also optimize your performance by making each step more efficient; less wear and tear on your feet, bones and shoes. When worn in your shoes custom foot orthotics can position the feet in proper biomechanical alignment.
