What do my feet have to do with it?
Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. Your feet therefore may have a direct impact on the rest of your body – when a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk could cause a chain reaction.
The Orthotic Group’s (TOG) custom orthotics help rebalance your feet, enhancing your body’s natural movements. In close partnership with your chiropractor, TOG designs orthotics that can augment your treatment.
What are Prescription Orthotics?
Prescription Orthotics look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your feet. Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
How do they help?
Properly made orthotics are custom moulded to the support requirements of your feet. Nobody understands this better than The Orthotic Group, a true leader in this specialised field.
How do I know if I have a problem?
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
- Localised foot pain
- Arch/ heel pain
What can I do?
Your chiropractor can prescribe foot orthotics to help your feet. You can help your chiropractor by discussing any foot problems and even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem.
