Foot pain is a problem that plagues millions of Americans every year. Sadly, in many cases, they will search high and low for relief, often resorting to complicated treatments, heavy-duty medication, or unnecessary medical procedures that can cost thousands.
However, in many cases, an easy solution is available to them: Custom foot inserts.
What Are Custom Foot Inserts?
Foot inserts – also known as foot orthotics – are inserts that fit inside of your shoe. They are made custom to your needs and based on extensive scientific research and personal measurements. They are a common foot pain solution that is typically inexpensive, non-invasive, and easy to obtain.
The science behind these inserts is sound and has been developed after a wide array of research. Indeed, studies have found that inserts can reduce pain from numerous disorders, including plantar fasciitis and heel spur syndrome. In some cases, they can reduce pain by as much as 75%. Patients are typically satisfied with the results of these inserts, and these inserts are often covered by insurance, making them highly affordable for most people.
How Can I Get Custom Inserts?
You can obtain these inserts by visiting a professional who is trained in customizing and ordering these inserts. They will likely obtain numerous measurements and may have you stand on a piece of machinery that will determine how you stand and where your areas of pressure are. The inserts will then be designed with your individual measurements in mind.
There are many ways that these inserts are available. You can see a chiropractor, who may be trained in giving you these inserts. Chiropractic care also has numerous other benefits, particularly when it comes to foot pain and foot orthotics, as a chiropractor can help you identify ways that you can improve your posture, thus relieving your feet of unnecessary pain and pressure. Furthermore, chiropractors can perform necessary adjustments to your spine, neck, and other extremities like ankle or foot, potentially helping you with pain relief and overall health. If you are experiencing severe foot pain, they may also make a variety of recommendations to you on stretches and exercises you can perform.
