This fall, think orthotics to help improve your performance on and off the field.
We know, the word sounds like something reserved for the older demographic. However, the reality is that all walks of life can benefit from these devices. That includes the weekend warrior, the student-athlete and even an avid mall walker.
What are orthotics, exactly?
Orthotics are devices placed in the shoe for overall correction of the foot, ankle and lower extremity posture for all foot types. They place the foot and lower extremity in a corrected or neutral position. This allows for optimal functioning by helping with stability for prevention and treatment of conditions including:
- Foot, ankle and heel pain
- Foot ulcers
- Plantar fasciitis
- Strains and sprains
