research: custom made orthotics effective for back pain
Custom made Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment stemming from the lower extremities. Some of these include but are not limited to hip, knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for custom made orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot.
Too high of too low of an arch interferes with proper support or transfer of weight or stress as you stand or walk. Improper foot arch mechanics can then create too much or not enough rotation at he leg knee or hip and set off problems.
Custom made Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back and hips but can even affect neck, shoulders, neck and head. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by your chiropractor and can last well over a year in most cases. This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.
