Do you suffer from knee, calf, foot or ankle pain? Do you find your thighs, hips, buttocks and lower back seem constantly sore or achy? Do you have unexplained discomfort all down your legs? If so, it could be you would benefit from orthotics. Luckily, that’s a service we provide here at Back to Basics.
We use the Dual Foot Levelers Kiosk, which allows you to scan yourself before you even go in to meet with the chiropractor. That way, you can get tests run while you’re waiting, saving time overall. Once you meet with the doctor, they can get right down to your diagnosis and treatment plan without spending most of the appointment on exams.
Plus, the resulting 3D model helps ensure that when you get your orthotics, they actually do the job right. In responding to your exact body type, shape, conditions and needs, the orthotics have the best chance of correcting your problems and pain, now and for years to come.
According to the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, “Orthotics, also called orthoses, are devices that are worn to correct foot and ankle problems without surgery. Most people think of shoe inserts or ‘arch supports’ when they hear the word orthotics, but they can include devices such as foot pads, shoe inserts, ankle braces and similar items.”
We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all or over-the-counter solution to your pain. That’s why orthotics are custom-made for you, so they address your specific needs without creating additional conditions that can be painful or unhealthy.
Orthotics are useful for many conditions. They can help diabetes patients, for instance, by relieving pressure on certain pressure points to decrease the chances of skin breakdown. For those who suffer from arthritis, orthotics can provide much-needed relief from pain and achiness, and can even reverse some of the symptoms by redirecting pressure on the joint.
Whether you have a chronic issue or have recently had an injury and need support, orthotics may be the ticket. Talk to your chiropractor today about getting orthotics made.
