Spinal Foot Orthotics are the 1st Key
to living a life that is active and pain free. Here are some fact about foot orthotics and spinal foot orthotics:
Custom Spinal Foot orthotics are basically shoe inserts
that can be custom-made to prescribed specifications to aid with problems with anything from the foot itself, ankle, knee or spine. They are also available or purchased “off-the-shelf. The problem with ‘off the shelf’ orthotics is the inability for them to address each person’s individual problem(s).
Custom-made orthotics are generally considered more effective
and of higher quality than generic foot orthotics. Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics that are designed by our clinic are custom made for your feet and should not be confused with over-the-counter arch supports. Our design of these devices is used to support or correct musculoskeletal deformities in both the foot AND to stabilize the base of the spine.
“One leg is longer than the other” is a common condition.
When one side is higher due to one leg being slightly longer, knee replacement or hip replacement, the spine is not straight up and down. This causes undue wear and tear on one side. It can also cause extra pressure on one side of a disc, many times enough to cause it to bulge or even become herniated more easily. Correction of these abnormal issues through the use of foot orthotics can greatly increase your mobility while decreasing pain symptoms. Our Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics are designed to help your feet better evenly distribute the load they carry daily, not just by improving front and back arch configuration. We also check the side-to-side differential and incorporate that into the design equation so that the base of your spine is corrected and your spine can perform in the way nature designed it to.
Many problems you may be experiencing can be corrected
by using a pair of Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics, but you can also prevent pain and discomfort from ever occurring. If you have had knee or hip replacement, an x-ray can help determine what (if any) side to side differences exist and having Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics made for you BEFORE that difference causes pain can eliminate problems from ever occurring!
Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics can help benefit people with foot or back pain
or discomfort due to imbalances in weight distribution and improper movement. In addition, foot orthotics can be prescribed to treat biomechanically related problems involving the knee, hip, and lower back. Foot orthotics provides functional control, better joint positioning, which in turn improves muscle activity and efficiency. Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics are known to solve a number of biomechanical related problems, not only obvious foot problems but also ankle and knee pain, pelvis, hip, spinal pain and even headaches.
By using foot orthotics, the potential for problems is reduced,
the weight should be better distributed and the spine stabilized. You can put the Spinal Foot orthotics inserts into any pair of shoes. However the one-size-fits-all adage of most over-the-counter foot orthotics can prove detrimental to a patient who requires specific support or material only found in a custom-made spinal foot orthotic. San Diego Spine & Disc Laser Center Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics are medically and mechanically engineered to go in your shoes to help get you out of pain.
“Can orthotics weaken muscles?” is a common question
among those who like to criticize what they see as excessive use of foot orthotics. There is recent evidence in one study that custom foot orthotics actually increases muscle strength and in another study the evidence is that they do not change the muscle strength. It is safe to conclude that Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics do not weaken muscles and can be used comfortably without worry. There are countless cases of Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics orthotics relieving hip and back pain for the clients of podiatrists. Those designed with the added advantage of stabilizing the spine can be even more pain relieving than those designed for just feet alone. Our Custom Spinal Foot Orthotics will help you rebalance your feet, and reduce pain and discomfort by enhancing your body’s natural movement with every step.
