Your feet play a massively important role in your overall health and they are the foundation of your body. Your feet take a beating. Because of that, foot pain is a very common ailment.
Custom orthotic inserts treat foot, ankle, leg and back pain in two ways: they provide additional support for diminished heel padding and high or fallen arches, and they can help correct foot deformities or alignment issues.
Shoe inserts are available at almost every drugstore, and custom shoe inserts can easily be purchased online. But shoe inserts ARE NOT custom orthotic inserts, despite what they may say. Custom orthotic inserts are made for you and only you, and will be produced only after a chiropractor has prescribed them following a complete biomechanical assessment and gait analysis (evaluation from your back to your feet).
