Most people tend to think that orthotic inserts and devices are for the elderly. However, people of all ages can use orthotics to treat or manage many different foot conditions such as flat feet, sports injuries, arthritis, heel and arch pain, ankle sprains, fractures, back pain, bunions, neuromas, and more.
- Providing the necessary support to your foot arches.
- Enhancing stability in your movement.
- Ensuring balance.
- Fixing your gait.
- Preventing any bone or joint deformity.
- Providing cushion to your heels and relieving them from pain.
- Absorbing shocks from sudden movements, especially while playing sports.
Even children can overcome most foot-related problems using customized orthotic inserts. They are tailor-made to address any prevalent conditions and built to fit various foot shapes and sizes. However, since children’s feet grow fast, the orthotics are also likely to be modified and replaced frequently so that their feet do not suffer.
If you are overweight or have a physically strenuous routine, your feet, especially the heels and the arches, are likely to hurt because of excessive pressure. In such cases, orthotics can provide relief by distributing your body weight more evenly or optimally.
