There are four common conditions that orthotics have the most potential to help with:
- Plantar Fasciitis – This is a common painful inflammation of the sole of the foot, can be easily recognized by its tendency to cause pain first thing in the morning
- Diabetes – Interferes with the circulation of blood in the feet.
- Arthritis – Affects joints of the foot
- Metatarsalgia– A very painful foot disorder that affects the bones and joints at the ball of the foot
Orthotics for back pain
Back pain in general is found to be notoriously resistant to any kind of treatment, probably because it is strongly influenced by many factors that we don’t fully understand or can’t control “YET” (including genetics, life style, profession, etc…)
Back pain correlates surprisingly poorly even with the most obvious structural/degenerative issues in the spine, so it’s unlikely that it would be much affected by the subtler biomechanical issues that might be influenced by gait.
Foot, ankle, knee and hip biomechanics are extremely complex. Though It is not rocket science — it’s actually much harder to comprehend.
And gait analysis is in itself an art and science. Non-specialists just cannot possibly navigate this maze successfully with every patient with the help of right tools.
Orthotics for preventing or treating the overuse injuries: Why do they make sense😮?
The repetitive strain injuries that runners, walkers, and hikers get are common and difficult, this is based on the fundamental belief that RSIs are caused by flawed biomechanics.
While biomechanics is the key factor, the main problem with most repetitive strain injuries is, strangely enough, repetitive strain — that is, your body parts would likely be feeling the strain even if you were biomechanically flawless if there is no supporting or aiding tool that prevents continued RSIs.
RSIs are found to be highly responsive and have shown significant developments when treated with orthotics than you probably thought.
Can orthotics do the job 🤔?
Get your diagnoses right – Your specialist must have in-depth understanding of your condition and because anything more subtle and you’ll probably get different diagnoses from different professionals.
The diagnosed condition should must be relevant to your injury. as most RSIs are not clearly associated with any known biomechanical problem.
Assuming all of the above work out, you will still need to get the correct prescription and a dependable supplier.
Good orthotics are an exceptionally great choice to get back in the game with any gait or postural dysfunction that contributes to your pain in the first place.
The problem must then be correctable at least in principle and orthotic braces just does the job.
