Have you ever had pain in your feet, ankles, knees, hips or back? Very often these issues are stemming from malalignment of the feet and can be easily addressed with custom orthotic inserts! If you have foot pain it should not be ignored. The presence of foot problems can affect the function of other parts of your body, including the hip, knee, and back.
What are Footmaxx Custom Orthotics?
Footmaxx Custom orthotics are foot supports inserted into your shoe to improve your foot position and timing during gait to reduce the stress and strain on your feet that leads to pain in your feet, knees, and low back. Footmaxx orthotics are clinician-designed for your unique foot and health challenges with unique layers for optimum fit, maximum comfort, and superior control.
How can custom Footmaxx Orthotics help me?
If you experience any of the following you may be a candidate for orthotics:
- Chronic foot, knee, hip, or back pain,
- Pain associated with your feet rolling in when you run or walk (pronation),
- Lower extremity pain,
- Frequent, recurrent ankle sprains,
- Persistent, recurrent tendonitis in the lower extremities,
Custom orthotics are foot supports inserted into the shoe to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern. They are personalized for everyone’s needs and can be used to:
- Reduce pain and provide proper support,
- Prevent foot deformity,
- Relieve pressure on a certain area of the foot,
- Improve the overall biomechanical function of the foot and lower extremity.
Can custom Footmaxx Orthotics help with back pain?
Orthotic inserts allow the feet and lower extremities to function at their highest potential by ensuring optimal alignment. They can decrease pain, alleviate pressure, and increase stability all the way up the kinetic chain. In other words, correcting the position of the feet can alleviate pain and imbalances in the knees, hips and back.
What foot conditions can be treated with custom Footmaxx Orthotics?
Below are some examples of conditions that may benefit from our custom orthotics:
Plantar Fasciitis, a common painful inflammation of the sole of the foot towards the heel, most easily recognized by its tendency to cause pain first thing in the morning
Arthritis, which often affects different joints of the foot
Diabetes, which interferes with circulation in the feet, requiring custom shoe modifications or custom-built footwear to alleviate pressure points
Metatarsalgia, a painful foot disorder that affects the bones and joints at the ball of the foot
Heel Spurs, a growth of dense tissue or bone growing out of the calcaneus bone on the heel. This is due to excessive pressure on this region from changes in walking
Flat Feet, also known as Pes Planus or Pronated feet. This refers to a collapse of the normal arch, which results in a cascade of negative effects up the chain to the knee, hips and back.
High Arches, also known as Pes Cavus or Supinated feet. This refers to an exaggerated arch, which results in increased pressures and other compensations up the leg and spine.
Knee Pain, can often be a result of malalignment of the feet causing excessive collapsing of the knee inward.
Back Pain, can often be due to malalignment of the feet causing compensations in the spine.
Recurring Ankle Sprains, due to instability of the ankle which can be addressed with proper orthotics.
Achilles Tendonitis, due to overstressing of the Achilles tendon which can be addressed with proper orthotics.
Shin Splints, irritation of the tibia (shin bone) due to repetitive stress from impact like running or jumping. This can be addressed with orthotics by properly aligning the feet and cushioning the impact to decrease overall pressure up the leg during activity.
