Foot & Ankle Orthotics
Foot & ankle orthotics are devices that are placed inside of shoes and used to support, align, and correct different foot and ankle problems. These problems can include things such as heel pain, arch pain, fallen arches, bunions, and hammertoes. H2 Health, having the vision to provide the highest quality holistic healthcare, brings you customized orthotics that’ll save you from injuries and help you recover faster.
What Are Orthotics Used For?
Although most clinics advise increasing physical activity and exercises like walking and running, few highlight the importance of wearing proper foot and ankle wear. Foot orthotics can help prevent or treat many conditions including:
- Plantar Fasciitis – Plantar fasciitis is characterized by inflammation of the supporting ligament of the sole. The sole bears a lot of force every day. Orthotics help keep your plantar fascia free from excessive stress and prevent the development of plantar fasciitis.
- Flat Feet – Flat feet are a very common problem. While it may not seem like a big deal, it can cause other issues like knee pain and shin splints. Orthotics are an easy and holistic way of fixing flat feet.
- Achilles Tendonitis – The Achilles tendon is a strong ligament that you can feel on the back of your heel. As with plantar fasciitis, excessive load on the Achilles tendon causes Achilles tendonitis. The good news is that H2 Health orthotics, designed according to your feet, will relieve the stress on your tendon and prevent any Achilles injuries.
- Shin Splints – Shin splints refer to having pain in your tibia or shin bone. The tibia is the large bone on the front of your leg that can be easily felt. It often gets injured if you are new to running or walking. Shin splints are caused by overuse. You may also get shin splints due to flat feet or inadequate shoes.
- Ankle sprains – Orthotics help your ankles stay supported and firm during various movements. This helps with keeping your ankles safe and strong during exercise.
