Custom Orthotics for Foot Pain
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored. The presence of foot problems can impact how the rest of the body functions – including your hips, knees and back.
Custom-made foot orthotics are medical devices inserted into the shoe to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern. They work like shock absorbers, removing pressure and stress from painful areas in the foot and ankle.
They can also prevent foot deformity or keep it from getting worse, better position the foot inside the shoe, and improve the overall way that the foot and lower leg move.
More than relieving pain, custom orthotics help:
- Cushion and support the foot
- Improve postural stability
- Reduce foot and leg fatigue
- Distribute weight evenly
- Improve balance and control
Because custom orthotics change the way your body moves, it’s important to work with a skilled medical professional who can evaluate the problem and prescribe the best solution. CSMO offers advanced foot support and custom orthotics at our Hixson office, and the foot assessment is included in a physical therapy evaluation. To schedule an appointment, call (423) 624-2696.
