Why and How Should I Get Custom Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics Relieve Pain and Improve Motion

If you have neck, arm, leg, or back pain, you probably think treatment has to focus on those areas. However, those symptoms often stem from conditions caused partly by poor body and foot alignment. Your feet are your foundation, and a lack of proper arch support forces your body to shift its weight a certain way to compensate. This leads to problems further up the body. One way Algonquin Chiropractic Center addresses those problems at the root is with custom orthotics.

Custom orthotic shoe inserts are an effective tool to relieve pain and improve motion when treating conditions like sciatica, spinal stenosis, and low back pain. Read on to learn how custom orthotics help, and how Algonquin Chiropractic Center supplies you with orthotics designed for your specific foot shape and condition.
