75% of people will suffer from foot related problems at some point in their life.
The foot is a complex structure made up of more than 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which are actively articulated), and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
As a result of their intrinsic structure, the feet are vulnerable to injuries. Foot pain that interferes with your normal activities is an indication that something is wrong and that you should seek medical help.
A custom made orthotics may be helpful in treating any of above problems
A custom orthotic is device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.
Custom orthotics work for your feet much like glasses work for your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motions that take place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole and they have the advantage of having been made from precise mold of your feet.
