Orthotics are devices placed inside the shoes with the purpose of restoring our natural foot function. This is necessary when the natural biomechanical balance of our lower body has been disrupted.
Many common complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain are caused by poor foot biomechanics. The most common form of bad foot biomechanics is overpronation, which is the dropping of the arches and rolling inwards of the feet and ankles and affects an estimated 70% of the population.
The goal is to supply support in a comfortable environment for the feet while correcting any improper foot mechanics.
Orthotic insoles correct overpronation and realign the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position, restoring natural foot function. In turn, this will help alleviate problems not only in the feet, but also in other parts of the body, such as the knees, hips, and lower back.
