A Personalized Solution for Foot Pain
Does it hurt whenever you walk? Your foot or ankle might have been injured in some way, and that can make getting from place to place daily a grueling task. Your first thought might be to get extra support for your foot. This is likely the right idea, but instead of turning to store-bought solutions, you should set up an appointment with Dr. Rozenberg at the Spine and Disc Center so that she can prescribe custom orthotics that are perfectly suited for your foot’s unique imbalances.
What are Custom Orthotics?
An orthotic device is a foot pad or heel insert worn inside the shoe to provide comfort and support the foot’s movement. Orthotics can be bought over the counter at the pharmacy or certain retail stores, but such products are typically made out of cheap material that will only provide a few days of relief. Custom orthotics are prescribed medical devices made specifically for your unique feet; they last much longer, and they’re designed to address your specific problem.
What Conditions Can Custom Orthotics Treat?
We might prescribe custom orthotics for a variety of reasons. Common medical conditions where you might benefit from additional support include:
- Back Pain: Sometimes, a problem with the foot can cause a misalignment with the ankle that ultimately changes the way you walk, causing your spine to hurt.
- Flat Feet: Also known as fallen arches, having flat feet means there’s no gap beneath the inner part of the foot when you stand up, affecting your body’s ability to properly distribute its weight across the feet and legs.
- Hammer Toes: One or more of your toes may be bent at the joint, becoming hammer-shaped and leading to foot pain.
- High Arches: If the arch of your foot is unusually high, it can lead to numerous issues, including recurring foot pain.
- Bunions: A bunion is a bony bump on the joint of the big toe, which limits its movement and can cause ongoing discomfort.
