CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS
WHAT IS CUSTOM ORTHOTICS?
A shoe insert that supports the abnormal movement of a foot. Made of different materials and quality; not all orthotics are created equal. Custom Orthotics also serves as an integral part of training for runners and all kinds of athletes.
They can be a tool to relieve pain, preserve bone and joint health and function, and even enhances performance. Those experiencing constant foot pain in the arch or heel need a quality orthotic made to support the foot.
While it may provide some short term relief, even the most cushioned insole won’t fix the problem long term.
WHY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS WORKS BETTER THAN GENERIC
Custom is key when it comes to orthotics. Unlike generic, mass-produced shoe inserts available over the counter or online, custom orthotics are tailored specifically for your foot. They provide support exactly where you need it and are shaped to fit the contours and size of your feet.
Also, because your feet don’t stand still all day, Dr. Leonard Knudson evaluates your stride during a custom orthotics evaluation. This gives him a clearer picture of how your feet function with movement. Every foot is unique, and an insert that’s not a custom fit can end up causing as much pain as it’s supposed to resolve.
BENEFITS OF CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS
While discomfort is your symptom, underlying structural abnormalities are often the culprit when it comes to foot pain.
Rather than masking your pain, custom orthotics correct the underlying cause, such as collapsed arches (pronation) or high arches (supination).
A custom orthotic is a prescribed medical device from a Foot Doctor Dr. Leonard Knudson to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain, and improve your balance and foot function in general, such as:
Support your feet and legs whenever weight bearing to increase confidence and sports performance.
Improves your balance.
Improves chronic and acute sports injuries.
Optimize shoe fit and comfort and absorb shock.
Eliminates low back pain from leg length inequalities.
Improve weight distribution and posture.
Help your child’s foot grow in more neutral or anatomically aligned position.
Alter abnormal foot functioning position to correct many common foot ailments or prevent them from getting worse.
