Have you been suffering from chronic pain, or have difficulties with mobility? If so, orthotics may be the answer to your prayers! Orthotics are custom-made devices designed to provide support, correct misalignment, and relieve pressure. In this blog post, we’ll take an in-depth look at how orthotics can help reduce pain and improve mobility.

What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are medical devices that can be used to help improve posture, balance, and coordination. They’re commonly prescribed by doctors and physiotherapists to help correct alignment issues or relieve discomfort in various parts of the body such as knees, hips, and feet.

Orthotics come in different shapes and sizes depending on your individual needs. For example, some people may require a heel lift for one foot or an arch support for both feet. Custom made orthotic devices are molded precisely to fit each person’s unique foot shape for the best possible results.

How Can Orthotics Help Relieve Pain?
When it comes to managing pain and discomfort associated with biomechanical issues such as flat feet, orthotics can play a significant role. By providing support, stability and correcting misalignments of bones, tendons and ligaments in the lower limbs, orthotic shoe inserts can help alleviate symptoms such as knee tendonitis caused by abnormal tracking of the kneecap, plantar fasciitis (heel pain) due to overpronation (inward rolling) of the ankle joint during walking/running or even shin splints (pain down the front edge of your shin bone). To get maximum benefit out of any form of orthotic device they need to be custom fitted specifically for you – one size does not fit all!

Benefits Of Orthotics for Improved Mobility
In addition to helping alleviate pain, orthotics can also offer therapeutic benefits beyond just comfort. Research suggests that orthotic use during activities like running can reduce fatigue levels due to improved stability when landing on hard surfaces like pavement or track surfaces compared with regular running shoes alone. This means that using properly prescribed orthosis together with appropriate shoes could lead not only to better performance but also increased safety with less risk of injury from falls or slips or other mishaps related due to poor foot biomechanics or strength deficits
