Orthotics are custom-made or over-the-counter medical devices designed to provide support, cushioning, and correction to the feet. They come in different shapes, sizes, and materials depending on the intended use. Orthotics can either be full-length inserts that cover the entire footbed or partial ones that target specific areas of concern.
Orthotics are important because they help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by various foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches, arthritis, and bunions. In addition to reducing pain, orthotics also improve balance, stability, and overall posture while walking or standing for extended periods.
Wearing orthotics can also prevent further injury or damage to the feet as they redistribute pressure evenly across the sole of your foot. This helps reduce stress in certain areas prone to wear and tear from daily activities such as running or jumping.
Orthotics play a crucial role in maintaining healthy feet and supporting an active lifestyle. At Colony Ortho RX Tiburon we offer customized solutions based on individual needs so you can stay comfortable without sacrificing activity levels!
