Home » The Benefits Of Using Custom Foot Orthotics

The foot has three arches that hold the body together. Most people only know about the medial arch, however, there is the lateral arch and the transverse arch and all three of these arches help the foot keep the body from becoming all crooked. Whenever there is a foot pain or problem a lot of people use over the counter foot orthotics and they will feel a little bit better until the problem starts to act up again. Over the counter foot orthotics only seems to address the three arches causing more harm than good. By using custom foot orthotics, the feet can start to feel the relief that it is looking for. Custom foot orthotics actually support all three arches of the foot and help maintain overall health and wellness to the body. Since every body is unique to the individual, custom foot orthotics are functional and custom to the person’s feet. Custom foot orthotics can bring balance to the person’s foot and body structure by gradually changing and realigning the body. When the body starts to feel crooked, it always starts with the feet because the feet are the foundation for the body and naturally the body will try to correct itself. When a person has foot pain it can be from a rolled ankle, hip dip, knees bent in and other symptoms. When this happens to the body, many health issues can come from overcorrected feet. So by using custom orthotics on the feet, it’s beneficial to anyone who has foot pain, back pain, headaches, and other health issues that can affect their body. It can alleviate those symptoms and can last for about 7 years through natural wear and tear. Dr. Alex Jimenez can help patients by providing them with functional custom foot orthotics so that way they can take back their overall health and wellness.

[00:00:12] Did you know there are actually three arches in the foot?

[00:00:15] Most people know about the medial arch 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. Over correction of one arch, which often comes from treating the symptom, not the cause, can create more problems throughout your body. 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, a key factor in maintaining good health. Just as everyone has a unique personality, everyone has a unique body structure and foot shape. 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. 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.

[00:01:48] Your knee will bend in, your hip will dip, and even your neck will crook to the side.

[00:01:53] That’s a lot of strain on your bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons. 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.
