In our practice, we utilize both custom cast and non-custom orthotics. Dr. Alano is one of the few chiropractors in Rhode Island who is certified to cast and fit Sole Supports custom orthotics. Sole Supports are the most biomechanically advanced orthotics available today. Why Sole Supports? Check them out on You Tube via this LINK.
Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions, plantar fascia and Morton’s Neuromas.
Orthotics great are a wise investment in your overall health, helping you avoid a myriad of biomechanical problems in the future.
