Why Opt For Foot Pain Orthotics

Did you know that almost 80% of the population around the globe develops some form of foot problem by the time they reach the age of 20? Foot doctors suggest that up to 90% of these people could get relief from their pain and discomfort if they use a properly prescribed orthotic. Even when some people don't have a foot pain, they may suffer from pain in their back, hips, knees, or even the neck, which could be attributed to a foot problem. So, if you are in the habit of popping pills every time your back aches or your foot pains, it's advisable to get a thorough check up done by a foot doctor to enjoy speedy foot pain relief. Only specialists like the doctors of Cupertino Podiatry can suggest the right foot pain orthotics and help you to choose the ideal product.

If you are wondering how orthotics can help your condition, it would be better to consider the structure of your foot at first and know what problems the foot ailments can trigger. Each of your foot has more than 100 parts, which are supposed to work in a complex way every time you take a stride. While each of your foot bears 1.5 times your weight when you walk, running can increase the weight to 2-3 times more. So, while running, your foot should be ready to absorb a lot of shock the moment your heel strikes the ground. Next, your foot should roll in, somewhat in a flattening motion that's not too much or else, the foot would become unstable. If your foot is rigid, it won't flatten sufficiently, and would be unable to absorb the shock. This in turn can give rise to stress fractures or hip and knee problems. Your foot, during the final part of foot motion, should roll out in a nice rigid arch, so that it can launch you off the ground with sufficient force to help you move forward. However, the feet of more than 50% of the world population roll in excessively, while in around 25% of people, the feet don't roll in adequately. This is where foot pain orthotics can help by correctly controlling the roll in and out of the feet, thus maximizing your feet's efficiency and helping you to steer clear of incorrect movements that could trigger pain.
