Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center offers patients custom foot orthotics that can help improve posture, balance, and alignment. If you experience discomfort or feel unbalanced while walking, custom orthotics could help you. Custom foot orthotics fit into a pair of shoes like inserts you can find in a pharmacy, but are prescribed and custom-made by a chiropractor to target a patient’s specific needs.
When a chiropractor prescribes custom orthotics, a foot impression is taken from the patient. This impression allows the doctor to create a custom product for the patient’s particular needs. Orthotics are made to be worn on a daily basis during almost any activity, and we provide various types of orthotics to adapt to different lifestyles or sports. When worn consistently, custom orthotics help realign bones in the foot and ankle. This can take pressure off of other problem areas like the back, neck, shoulders, and hips. Custom foot orthotics are just one way to care for your chiropractic health. If you think you could benefit from custom foot orthotics, please give us a call.
