Stabilizing Your Foundation
Surprisingly your feet are often the starting point of your pain and they don’t have to be hurting to cause pain somewhere else in your body. Just like a house, your body needs a good foundation; weakness or imbalances in your feet can cause pain in other parts of your body. Stabilizing orthotics were made to support the 26 bones and over 100 muscles in each of your feet to protect your foundation. Your foot has 3 arches that optimize your body by supporting weight in your entire body, providing balance and stability, and to shock-absorb stress.
Comparing over the counter products to Stabilizing Orthotics
Over-the-counter products only support 1 arch and that often over corrects and does not provide arch support for all 3 of your arches. Over-the-counter products only give you more cushion to mask the underlying problem. Just like each body shape is different, each foot is too. Over-the-counter products are made as a “one-size” fits all generic solution.
Stabilizing orthotics are made specifically for each person based on digital images or impressions of your feet. This supports all 3 of your arches to balance your body, give strength to support the weight of your body, give your body flexibility to accommodate changes in terrain, and provides momentum for movement.
