Custom Made Orthotics
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step. A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort. For example, when you are running, the pressure on your feet can be three or four times your body weight. Even walking can produce more pressure than the sum of your body weight.
Custom orthotics and custom orthopedic shoes are particularly helpful for people with:
- Foot pain
- Knee pain
- ITB syndrome
- Plantar fascitis
- Chronic back or SI pain
Unlike traditional dress or athletic stockings and socks, compression stockings use stronger elastics to create significant pressure on the legs, ankles and feet. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to help return the blood to the heart with less blood pooling in the feet.
They are designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of venous disorders.
Wearing stockings helps with:
- Tired, aching, fatigued legs
- Swollen feet, ankles and legs
- Varicose and spider veins
- Swelling associated with frequent travelling
- Runners and sports performance use
