More on Orthotics
There are several issues you may suffer from that may be helped with orthotics, including:
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Flat Feet
- Mallet Toes
- Heel Pain
- High Arches
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Diabetic Foot
Types of orthotics include:
- Rigid Orthotics: These are inserts that change your foot's functions by preventing extreme overpronation, evening limbs and reducing pain in lower back and upper legs.
- Semi-Rigid Orthotics: They reinforce balance and agility making them useful for athletes. They're made of alternating layers of soft and firm material.
- Soft Orthotics: They absorb shock and reduce pressure in specific spots in the foot and ankle. Soft orthopedic inserts are soft and flexible. They're used to treat plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee, and diabetes-related problems.
Advantages of Orthotics:
Custom orthopedic shoes accommodate your specific foot arches, ankles, heels and toes, bony prominences, and pressure points.
Some other benefits include:
- They accommodate people who suffer from diabetic ulcers, deformed toes, collapsed arches, digital amputation, bunions, calluses, and hammertoes.
- Kids get quality orthopedic shoes with padded midsoles and wide toe boxes so they have comfortable boots, sneakers and more.
- Orthotics provide better balance and support.
