The human foot is an incredible structure, designed to naturally flex and pronate, absorb impact shocks, keep your body balanced and aligned, and propel you forward.
Unfortunately, not all feet do this equally well. Many people have structural or biomechanical inefficiencies or deformities, such as flexible flat feet, high arches, or overpronation. These issues can make the feet less effective at their jobs and more prone to injuries and pain. Because feet are the foundation of the body, these biomechanical problems can even create misalignments and pain further up the body, including in the knees, hips, and back.
If this is the situation you find yourself in, a carefully selected set of orthotics will often be the best treatment option. Orthotics can provide the optimal level of support, cushioning, and stability your feet need to alleviate the discomfort and get back to working properly again.
At InStride Crystal Coast Podiatry, we offer high quality premade arch supports as well as prescription custom orthotics to meet the unique needs of our patients.
Give Your Feet the Support They Need
Just like the right pair of glasses or contacts can help even those with extreme refractory errors see with perfect clarity, the right set of orthotic inserts can help feet of all shapes and sizes stand up to daily stresses and function at their full potential.
If you are struggling with chronic pain and your feet are to blame, trust Dr. Thomas Bobrowski and the team at InStride Crystal Coast Podiatry to provide the support you need. You can reach our New Bern office by phone at (252) 638-4700, or request an appointment online.
