I ahve been getting some real annoying aches and pain my feet recently.. been looking online and this what I have found out.. Will jot it all down here for later refrence because my memory is terrible these days. …..Orthotics are a specially designed implement worn on the body or an insert placed inside the shoe. Did you know orthotics or arch support insoles for your feet can help to ease back pain? How does this occur? How does correcting an in-balance in the foot cause an unrelated pain to go away? The fact is the two painful regions are not entirely unrelated due to the effects of posture. It is due in part to the way the orthotic corrects your posture by aligning the foot correctly. Correct posture thus means that overcompensating acts such as leaning forward no longer occur reducing stress on the lower back and knees which leads to a reduction in pain.
Severe back pain can be due to lordosis and anterior pelvic tilt and also from straining due to incorrect posture. Orthotics corrected this problem and the pain went away within 3 months. That is the power of posture and correct alignment. Orthotics are inexpensive and can range in price from $10 to $100. Not a bad price to live pain free is it?
You can have orthotics for all kinds of conditions and for all kinds of joints and tendons. Arch support insoles are a special orthotic for the feet, knee supports are designed to aid the knees, back supports correct the posture of the back. They can all work synergystically to correct posture and eliminate pain.Orthotics are used to treat all types of conditions from metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonities, knee and back pain. They can be used for all types of people from the young to the old, the physically inactive to the athletic. Everyone can benefit!
