Many people associate custom orthotics for foot pain only.
It is true that orthotics are helpful for foot pain associated with plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis in the feet and toes. Having proper custom orthotics can also help with joint pain in the knee and hips. The Chiropodist or foot specialist, sees how you stand, walk and move I their assessment. They will also see how your foot position affects how you stand, move and walk and how your hips and knees look as well.
Custom orthotics will help align these joints in a way that may help with pain and function.
Like most “external” treatments, custom orthotics are only part of the puzzle. Orthotics can help with offloading and alignment as we strengthen our bodies to help support our hips, knees, and ankles.
