Most people fail to realize how large of a role their feet play in overall health and well-being. Over time the condition of your feet will begin to deteriorate and you will start to experience a number of different health consequences. In order to get the right treatment for your conditions, you will need to find a chiropractor in your area to help. One of the most common treatments you will find at your chiropractor’s office to treat foot problems is orthotics, inserts placed inside shoes to provide additional support. Keep reading for just a few of the conditions that can be helped with orthotics.
One of the most common conditions treated with this method is foot pain, which can be caused by a wide array of things, such as improper footwear or excessive use. With the use of orthotics, the patient will be able to experience some relief with their foot pain. In some cases, you will have to try a few different methods before you find the right fit for your problems.
Knee and Back Pain
Another common condition which can be treated with this method is chronic knee and back pain. In most cases, problems involving the knees will usually stem from a condition in the feet. Orthotics will help with the alignment of your spine and work to eliminate the lower back pain you are experiencing.
Yet another very common reason for this treatment is to help people who are professional athletes. These athletes use all of the muscles in their body on a regular basis and in order to get the right footing they use orthotics. There are a number of specially designed insoles made just for athletes that offer them the extra support they need.
If you think you could benefit from orthotic treatments, then you will need to seek out the help of a professional in the chiropractic industry. We have podiatrists available at our Loop and West Loop offices – call us for more information.
