Foot and sole fitThe average person walks approximately 110,000 miles in her or his lifetime, which is the equivalent to five times around the Earth. Like having a quality mattress, quality shoes are important to one’s daily wellbeing. Yet people continue to purchase poorly fitted shoes for fashion, price or other personal reasons. Foot pain can be prevented or reduced by choosing to wear properly fitted shoes.

Feet are the foundation for the entire body and contain one-quarter of our body’s bones. When shoes are not fitted properly, an array of problems can occur: bunions, corns and calluses, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, heel pain, arch problems and a variety of other problems. Poorly fitted shoes not only affect your feet but also have an impact on overall health. Wearing ill-fitted shoes can cause pain in your neck, back, hips and knees.

There is a direct correlation between our feet and spine stabilization. Custom-made foot orthotics are designed for spinal stabilization. They specifically support the natural arch, help our feet maintain normal position and help control foot function. This helps stabilize your spine, which improves posture and spinal alignment, improving overall health for your whole body.

Feet are the foundation to the essential function of your entire musculoskeletal system. Wearing custom orthotics is beneficial to your entire well-being.
