Custom orthotics do more than support your feet. If your foot alignment (posture) is off, then your entire body posture might be too. This can have profound effects on your health over time. If you have never had your feet assessed, you may not know if this is contributing to a health problem.
Does this describe you?
- Do your feet hurt?
- Do you have flat feet?
- Do your feet form calluses?
- Do you have ankle, knee or hip pain?
- Do your legs feel “heavy”?
- Do you feel fatigued by the end of your day?
Sometimes back, hip and knee pain arises from abnormal foot posture. This is because these regions connect through the feet and only when the feet are aligned properly, is the foundation of the body in the correct posture. The arch of the foot determines foot posture. A high arch causes you to walk on the outer edge of your feet (supination) and this rotates the knees outwards, causing bow-legs. A low arch causes you to walk on the inside edge of your feet (pronation), rotating the knees inwards, causing knock-knees.
