Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by Dr. Ross and can last well over a year in most cases. This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a bio-mechanical standpoint.
Our system of determining your need for orthotics is to first do a digital scan of your feet. A printed report is given to you that explains the status of all three of the arches in each of your feet. The scan can then be sent over the Internet for an accurate, customized orthotic for you.
