How Your Feet Can Benefit From Orthotics

Are you experiencing foot pain or problems with your foot alignment? You should see Dr. Eric Arp of Arp Foot and Ankle Clinic, PA, for Orthotics in Harrison and Mountain Home, AR.

What Are Orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-made shoe and heel inserts from your podiatrist that help you relieve foot pain and correct foot alignment problems.

Unlike generic shoe inserts that you can get from the store, orthotics fit your feet perfectly and can help improve your feet' conditions with time.

Support Your Feet 

The specific arches and curves of your feet are supported by orthotics because they are made specifically for you.

Generic shoe inserts might provide some comfort but their function is limited because they don't conform to your natural foot structure.

Arp Foot and Ankle Clinic, PA, uses superior gait analysis technology to construct your orthotics in Harrison and Mountain Home, AR. Therefore, you get better support for your foot alignment problems.

Improve Your Sports Performance 

If you're an athlete, you might want to discuss the benefits of custom orthotics in your sport with your podiatrist.

Your orthotics will take off some of the pressure on your feet and joints, allowing you to perform better. It could also reduce your chance of injury by ensuring proper foot alignment.

Protects Your Joints

Routine activities such as walking, running, and jumping, place pressure on your joints.

Over time, this pressure in your joints causes wear and could result in pain.

Custom orthotics help absorb some of the force of your movements and takes off some of the pressure in your joints.

Pain Relief

Foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, arthritis, and flat feet can be quite painful. You could also experience limited mobility with these conditions.

Your podiatrist might recommend custom orthotics as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for your feet' problems.

Orthotics provide the right foot support you need and help relieve your pain from foot misalignment.

Reduce Foot Pressure 

Orthotics absorb some of the pressure on your feet. The pressure on your feet can increase your chances of getting foot ulcers if you have diabetes.

Your podiatrist can help you construct the right orthotics to relieve pressure on your foot and reduce your risk of foot ulcers.
