The human foot is made up of an intricate network of 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and thousands of nerve endings. Its amazing design is meant to carry us over rocky, uneven terrain, keep us upright, and allow us to walk and run with its built-in method of shock absorption.
Unfortunately, all feet are not created equal. Genetics may have given you an unusually high arch or extremely flat feet. Alternately, your feet may have become flat as a result of poor strength in the muscles that help to support the arch, leading to problems like plantar fasciitis and posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (aka “a hurty foot”).
A foot that doesn’t allow for proper shock absorption may contribute to back, knee, or hip pain. And, because 🎼🎼🎼🎼 the foot bones are connected to the shin bone and the shin bone is connected to the thigh bone 🎼🎼🎼🎼, a flat foot will lead to excessive hip and knee strain and eventually low back pain.
Custom orthotics can help alleviate the pain and dysfunction associated with many foot disorders. And while we can 1000% fit you in a custom pair of orthotics, we prefer to get to the ROOT of the problem that’s leading to the hurty feet.
This is not to say that you may not truly need—and benefit from—orthotics. There are times when we like to use them, such as in short-term situations where your plantar fascia is lit up and needs relief so that it can heal, or in cases of congenital foot deformities.
So in short - if you want orthotics - we can hook you up.
And if you’re looking for a longer term fix that gets to the root of your problems - we can hook you up!
