Custom Foot Orthotics: The foundation of your body
Custom foot orthotics are inserts that support or correct the alignment of the foot to reduce stress and strain on your body. Foot imbalances start from childhood and are recognizable as early as age 3. The foot is the foundation of your body. Each foot has 26 bones which equals 25% of the bones in your body. The average person takes about 8000-10000 steps a day. If our feet are not functioning properly, it can cause pain all the way up the body. It is true what we learned as children- “ the foot bone is connected to the leg bone and the leg bones connected to the hip bone and the hip bones connected to the back bone……” By using orthotics we can support our feet in a better position which can reduce stress and discomfort.
