Orthotics benefit people with foot pain or discomfort due to imbalance. People who must walk or stand excessively at their work will also benefit from the comfort of orthotics. For those who are active in sports, orthotics will often increase endurance, performance and strength. Orthotics can also work in a preventative manner to avoid the development of future foot problems, such as skin ulcerations.
Imbalances of the bones of the feet can result in abnormal foot function. This can impair foot
function which can result in abnormal rotationof the legs, and sometimes affect the knees, hips
or back. If we combine these tremendous forces with the need for precise balance, we can see
how small structural changes in the foot can make significant differences. Orthotics help to
improve these structural changes.
