Custom Orthotics in San Jose
Plantar fasciitis and other foot problems can hinder your ability to walk normally. You may have pain. In some cases, your foot pain will radiate beyond your foot. As a result, you could experience leg or back pain as well. Fortunately, our chiropractor at Ross Chiropractic, serving San Jose, CA, and the nearby region, can identify any issues and address them accordingly with treatments like custom orthotics.
What's an Orthotic
An orthotic is a device that our chiropractor custom makes to improve the function of your foot. Specifically, the device eases pressure with every step you take rather than your foot feeling pain or discomfort every time you walk. Additionally, it helps with the alignment of your foot, which can ensure you walk properly and are evenly distributing weight.
Benefits of an Orthotic
When your gait is negatively affected, it can trigger a domino effect in your body and contribute to issues in other places, such as back pain. Custom orthotics help ease these problems. Your feet will hurt less as well when you wear a custom orthotic.
Conditions that orthotics often treat include:
- Flat feet
- Heel spurs
- Plantar fasciitis
What to Expect When Getting Orthotics
We will start with a thorough analysis of your medical history and current condition. This helps our chiropractor custom-tailor treatments for you with safety in mind. We will specifically assess how you walk and account for any abnormalities regarding how you bear weight while standing and moving.
In addition, our chiropractor will feel your feet to assess for any tightness, swelling, or other signs of a foot problem. In some cases, our practitioner may recommend you undergo imaging for a closer look at the inside of your foot.
After, our practitioner will determine if a custom orthotic is the right choice for you. If it is, you'll need to undergo a fitting. This process makes sure you receive a pair of orthotics that are specific to your feet. As a result, they'll help relieve pain and reduce discomfort while performing daily activities. Additionally, custom orthotics won't wear out as easily since they're made to fit your foot.
