Custom Orthotics at Shapiro Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center
If you experience constant foot soreness and pain, custom orthotics may help you obtain relief. At Shapiro Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we specialize in chiropractic techniques that help keep your spine and joints healthy. Your gait and posture play an integral part in achieving this goal. That's one of the reasons we are happy to offer custom orthotics in Gallatin and Hendersonville, TN.
What Causes Foot Pain?
Your feet provide support for your body weight, which puts a lot of stress on them. You may believe that each foot takes on half your weight when you walk. However, your feet may feel a force equal to twice your body weight. If your gait is uneven, it can affect your biomechanics, leading to pain and discomfort.
What Are Custom Orthotics?
They are footwear inserts that support your arches. You might need them if you have a short leg, collapsed arches, or uneven arches. Custom foot orthotics relieve the stress on your musculoskeletal system and let you walk and perform daily tasks without pain. Off-the-shelf orthotics provide general support, but they don't give you the customized foundation needed for comfortable wear. Custom orthotics made for your feet are a true solution
How Chiropractic Orthotics Help You?
Our chiropractor helps many patients through custom-made orthotic inserts.
The benefits of custom orthotics include:
- Alignment of foot or ankle
- Prevention and accommodation of foot deformities
- Correction of biomechanics to eliminate hip, knee, and spinal pain
- Enhanced athletic performance, thanks to correct foot alignment
- Relief and prevention of common foot problems, such as heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, and poor gait
How It Works
Our chiropractor serves clients in Hendersonville and Gallatin, TN. Here's what you can expect.
First, we use a hassle-free 3D digital scanner to map out your feet. The process takes a few minutes. Next, Dr. Shapiro will discuss the results of the scan. Digital images reveal issues that need to be addressed. This information tells our chiropractor what kind of orthotics can fulfill your needs for sports, casual, and dress shoes.
Your orthotics can take from ten days to two weeks to arrive at our office. You'll come in for a final fitting to ensure the inserts match your foot. Once we confirm the fit, you take the inserts home and say goodbye to your constant foot pain.
