The human foot contains 25% of the bones in the human body. Feet have a great impact on the rest of the body, and when problems develop in the feet it will affect your poster and the way you walk, creating stress on joints, leading to more serious problems.
Orthotics can help reduce pain, stress, strain, and discomfort in your body by re-balancing your feet and gently correcting foot abnormalities. Once you have your orthotics you will notice you have less strain on your angles, knees, hips and spine.
Symptoms of poor foot mechanics to look out for:
• Localized foot pain
• Bunions, hammer toes
• Arch and heel pain
• Leg and knee pain
• Hip, back or neck pain
