Orthotics Good for Foot Ailments
When it comes to foot ailments, age matters. “Approximately 24% of adults have foot ailments, and the prevalence increases with age,” according to a recent study. But, there are solutions. “Biomechanical evidence indicates that foot orthotics and specialized footwear may change muscle activation and gait patterns to reduce joint loading. Emerging evidence suggests that orthotics, specific shoe types and footwear interventions may provide an effective nonsurgical intervention in rheumatic diseases,” according to a recent study. If you have foot pain, ask a doctor of chiropractic if orthotics will help.
