Home » The Benefits Of Custom Foot Orthotics

Everyone has different personalities, body structures, and foot shapes that are unique to the individual. With custom foot orthotics, they actually fit the person’s foot shape since they are customed to their unique foot structure, unlike the generic mass-produced ones. When a person wears custom orthotics, they are at the pinnacle performance for the longest time, since these inserts can optimize the body by providing momentum, flexibility, and strength so that the individual can continue to do their daily activities for long periods of time. The foot has three arches and people only know about the medial arch but not the lateral arch or the anterior transverse arch. When someone put on generic mass-produced orthotics, the insert only focuses on one of the three arches, causing problems and doing more harm than good. With the custom orthotics, however, focuses on the three arches while also treating the foot symptoms that a person may have. Custom foot orthotics can help alleviate the pain and injuries that the body may have and even help realign the body to function properly. Now, as an added bonus, wearing custom foot orthotics and going in for chiropractic treatment is a winning combination. When the body is misaligned, there are many problems that a person doesn’t even know that their body is causing. It can be from a hip dip, the neck can be crooked to the side, the ankles are rolled in and the knees are bent in, this can cause unwanted problems for the person and they can experience back pain as well as other complications in the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Alex Jimenez utilizes the benefits of chiropractic care and custom orthotics to help promote overall health and wellness for individuals that have experienced pain and discomfort from their feet. By using custom foot orthotics, they can begin to be on the road to optimal health.

[00:00:14] Just as everyone has a unique personality, everyone has a unique body structure and foot shape. The benefit of using custom-made orthotics rather than generic mass-produced ones is that they’re perfectly fitted to you. Your health is paramount. Wearing custom-made orthotics will ensure that you stay at the pinnacle of performance for the longest possible time. Our orthotics optimize the body by providing momentum for movement, permitting flexibility to accommodate changes in terrain, giving strength to support the weight of the entire body. Did you know there are actually three arches in the foot? Most people know about the medial arch.

[00:00:49] But have you ever heard of the lateral arch or the anterior transverse arch. Over the counter inserts address, only one of those three arches and in doing so can actually create more harm than good. Overcorrection of one arch which often comes from treating the symptom, not the cause, can create more problems throughout your body. That’s why our founder, Dr. Monty H. Greenwald, knew how vital it is to address all three arches, which helps alleviate pain and injury throughout the body. Here’s another quick quiz for you. How many bones are in the foot? How many joints? How many muscles, tendons, and ligaments? Here are the answers. There are 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in your foot. There’s no way correction of only one arch can keep those 26 bones, 33 joints and 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments functioning properly. Unlike those cheap over-the-counter inserts, foot levelers functional orthotics support all three arches of the foot, something we call the three arch advantage. This helps hold the adjustments your doctor performs as well as helps bring your entire body into alignment.

[00:01:56] A key factor in maintaining good health. So we’re talking a lot about the feet and how our functional orthotics addressed the three arches. And you’re asking how does that impact my low back pain? My headaches? How are these orthotics going to help me perform better? Well, your feet are the foundation of your body. If your feet are out of balance, the rest of your body is sure to be off-balance. Believe it or not, your low back pain could actually be a result of something going on with your feet. It’s your inherent nature to always keep your eyes level. If your feet are off-balance. Think of all the things that must happen between your feet and eyes to make that happen. Your ankle will roll. Your knee will bend in, your hip will dip, and even your neck will croak to the side.

[00:02:38] That’s a lot of strain on your bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons.

[00:02:44] Foot levelers functional orthotics help take all that strain off of your body, which in turn helps you feel better and perform at a higher level.
