How Orthotics help with Plantar Fasciitis

When your feet hurt, it is hard to really enjoy life. If you suffer from the pain and limitations of plantar fasciitis, however, your Bowie area chiropractor has good news. Custom orthotics can help improve your quality of life as part of a comprehensive chiropractic wellness program. Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the thick tissue band that supports your foot arch and connects your heel to your toes, along the sole of your foot. Plantar fasciitis upsets the balance and weight distribution on the foot. This condition can make you more vulnerable to pain and misalignment in other parts of the body, including your back, hips, knees and ankles.

Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

How are Orthotics Fitted at Our Bowie Chiropractor?

At our chiropractic clinic, we will conduct a spinal screening, discuss your symptoms, evaluate your posture and biomechanics while observing your walking gait to identify any musculoskeletal or balance problem. If our chiropractor believes you will benefit from custom orthotics, we will take impressions of the shape and contours of your foot. The impressions will be used to make customized orthotics that will fit many different types of shoes. 

What will Orthotics Do to Help My Condition?

Our custom-made orthotics are shoe inserts that provide support and shock absorption to help eliminate foot pain. In addition, orthotics from your chiropractor will help bring your body into proper alignment, while improving balance and function.
