Custom Orthotics Chelsea, NYC
If you are a runner, or know anyone who is, you’ve probably heard about orthotics inserted inside the shoe to add cushioning, provide arch support, and help relieve foot pain by taking pressure off sore spots such as the heels and the balls of the feet.
Bear in mind that the body’s weight-bearing joints (ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, lower back, and neck) are connected in a chain that begins at the feet. If the feet are out of balance, then every joint, connecting muscle, tendon, and ligament will also be out of balance. These can become injured over time, and produce pain in the feet as well as other areas of the body.
While there are over-the-counter orthotics that come in basic men’s and women’s shoe sizes, and last for about 6-9 months, our custom-made Foot Levelers orthotics provide years of an effective and long-lasting solution.
For starters, the Foot Levelers orthotics are custom-created to the specific form of your feet. A digital scan is taken to determine how your feet are structured and to identify any imbalances that are causing pain. Using this data, we then determine which stabilizers are right for you, based on your activity level and the type of shoes you will wear. Foot Levelers orthotics can be customized to fit comfortably in sneakers and athletic wear, as well as dress shoes and high heels.
By correcting imbalances in the feet, Foot Levelers also help to stabilize the spine, pelvis, hips and lower back, creating a solid foundation for proper posture, reducing foot pain, and enhancing your body’s overall performance. They support all three arches of the foot, which naturally weaken with age, and realign the feet and ankles to function more effectively during weight-bearing and propulsion.
And unlike over-the-counter orthotics, Foot Levelers will last for several years.
