4 Benefits of Custom Orthotics Beyond Foot Pain
What are Custom Orthotics?
Custom orthotics are specially made orthotics that are designed to correct specific foot conditions and help alleviate pain caused by those ailments. Orthoticscan be placed in a shoe to correct abnormal foot motion and provide support where it’s needed most.
Improve Your Athletic Performance
Most people who have custom orthotics to improve athletic performance have also had them for balance and alignment improvement. Orthotics will benefit your performance if you have pain while running or even walking, your ankle/foot feels weak, you have knee pain, or notice your gait is unbalanced.
Strengthen Your Bones And Muscles
When you use orthotics to correct your foot structure, you are working to improve your alignment and strength of your bones and muscles.
If you have had custom orthotics for a while, you may notice that you are walking or running much more smoothly than before. This is because custom orthotics are helping to correct your alignment.
Recover Faster From Workouts
Since you are correctly aligning your feet, you are able to push your muscles much further than before. This means that you will be able to recover from your workouts much faster than before.
Long-term Pain Relief
One of the most common reasons why people have orthotics is for long-term pain relief. If you have tried every pain reliever under the sun and the famous “just put ice on it”, custom orthotics will more than likely help you. If you have been suffering from plantar fasciitis or heel spurs for a long time, then custom orthotics may also be the best option for you.
