Custom Orthotics for Colonie, Schenectady & Albany, NY
Your feet are the foundation of your body. Any weakness or unstable positioning in your feet can, over time, contribute to postural problems in the rest of your body. Custom Orthotics help your feet maintain their structural and functional balance, and keep your feet in a stable position throughout the day.
A quick 3-D digital scan of your feet helps to assess the weight-bearing pattern through your feet and may reveal a loss of one or more of the three major arches in the foot. When the weight-bearing pattern is irregular, orthotics are often necessary to create the level foundation needed to bring and keep your body in better alignment. This helps to significantly reduce repetitive strain (overuse) injuries, and also to maintain the health of your joints and soft tissues throughout your body.
Orthotics work particularly well for athletes, runners, and people who spend most of their day in the standing position.
