Sadly, in today’s world, foot pain has become a common problem. Many of us work jobs that require us to be on our feet for many hours, which can put an unbelievable amount of stress on our feet. So how can you make your life a bit more pain-free? Invest in custom orthotics! In today’s post, Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, shares some conditions that can be relieved with orthotics.
Custom orthotics are inserts that are placed in your shoes. Typically prescribed by a podiatrist, they are custom-made for the shape and size of your feet. They are also designed to remove pressure and absorb shock. This makes custom orthotics ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet and for those who have an uneven walking pattern that produces pain in their ankles or feet.
There are numerous conditions that custom orthotics can help. Foot pain can affect many other parts of the body, including the knees, back, and hips. That’s why it’s crucial that you take care of your foot pain before it leads to other, bigger problems.
If you have any of the above conditions and want to know if custom orthotics can help, the first step is to contact Dr. Hubert Lee and his team at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, to schedule your next visit. You can schedule an appointment online or by calling us at 425-455-0936.
