When it comes to foot, arch or heel pain, custom foot orthotics can help with that.
For those who may not be sure what custom foot orthotics are, they are devices made specific to your foot type that you place inside your shoe. Custom orthotics work to keep your foot in the most optimal position while you are walking and promote proper walking mechanics.
Optimal foot position and proper walking mechanics work to keep pressure distributed evenly across your foot so there is not too much pressure in any one spot.
This may be a solution if any of these feel familiar:
You have heel or arch pain when you step out of bed and take the first few steps in the morning.
You have heel or arch pain when you get up from sitting and take those first steps.
The center of your heel hurts when you walk.
You feel like you have a wadded sock under the balls of your feet when you walk or stand.
The pain in your heel, arch or balls of your feet keep you from walking, running and performing other activities you love.
If this sounds like the world you have been living in, there is hope. Together with custom orthotics, you need to be in the correct shoe for your foot type that is supportive in the arch.
You also need to resolve any pain, tightness and or weakness around the foot and ankle. Custom foot orthotics are most effective when you wear the proper shoe for your foot type and the symptoms are under control.
The physical therapists at Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy are experts in the treatment of foot and ankle issues, as well as the fitting and fabrication of custom foot orthotics.
Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy uses the latest technology to make custom foot orthotics. We take a scan of your feet while you’re standing and a scan of your feet while you’re walking.
The scans tell us if your feet are functioning properly during standing and walking and where there is too much pressure versus not enough pressure. From these standing and walking scans, the orthotics are made via 3-D printing, which is very precise and accurate.
For those who want to stop the pain and get back to recreational activities, call Cardin and Miller at 717-245-0400 to schedule a free custom orthoic screen in order to see if it’s the solution for you.
