The foot is an incredibly complex system of small bones. As fragile and complex as these bones are, our feet also do an enormous amount of heavy work. They keep us standing, allow us to move around, and are a key part of our balance system. Indeed, the foot is truly a marvel of nature!
Do You Have a Foot Problem?
The fact that the foot is complex and hard working also, unfortunately, means that lots of people suffer from foot pain and aches. In fact, the foot is so integral to the way that our bodies move and balance that many chronic foot problems can also have a negative effect on other parts of our bodies.
Do You Need Orthotics?
People who have fallen arches and other foot problems also often find that they feel aches and pains in their ankles, knees, or hips. In fact, many people with foot problems even have related back problems.
In these cases, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in other areas of our bodies are actually compensating for the mechanical problems in our feet. This places extra stress on these other parts of the body, leading to chronic health issues.
Foot orthotics help to correct many common mechanical problems in the foot. Many people find benefit in wearing professionally-designed foot orthotics in Racine, WI, including:
- Sufferers of arthritis
- Sports people and athletes who rely heavily on their feet
- People who stand for long periods of time
