Why See a Kennewick Chiropractor About Orthotics?
As we age, our bodies change. Conditions such as arthritis may cause pain in the feet and ankles, as can diabetic complications and skin conditions. Without orthotics, the pressure points that receive the greatest burden cannot find relief, which can even make the problem worse.
What Is Orthotics?
While the word “orthotics” is usually associated with a slip-in shoe insert, the term actually refers to any variety of corrective footwear, including shoe pads, ankle braces or custom inserts. The goal is to redistribute pressure on your foot and surrounding structures in such a way as to correct the problem you are experiencing.
What Are the Benefits of Orthotics?
When you use the correct type of orthotics, your chiropractor can help you relieve pressure from certain points in your feet, ankles, and lower legs. This can reduce the pain from arthritis, prevent skin breakdown and make you more comfortable overall. Depending on your unique situation, there may be other benefits as well.
Is Orthotics Right for You?
The usefulness of orthotics depends on your unique situation, the condition you are trying to correct and the other treatments you put in place. Some conditions do require surgery, but we find the majority do not. If you would like to learn more about how orthotics can help you in a noninvasive way, immediately, we invite you to get in touch.
