Are you looking for orthotics in Hoffman Estates IL or Rolling Meadows IL? 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.
To improve the alignment and functionality of the lower extremity, custom foot orthotics are inserts that go inside your shoes. These devices are created by creating a mold of your foot, which is then used to create an orthotic that fits your feet's unique shapes. In designing the device, modifications can be made to account for unusual anatomy, relieve discomfort from disorders like Morton's neuroma or plantar fasciitis, or improve movement and alignment.
Depending on the intended application (dance, prolonged standing, or jogging), orthotics differ in substance and design (high arch, diabetes, etc.). From soft and flexible materials like cork and foam to semi-rigid polymers and entirely stiff materials like carbon fiber, they can be created from a number of materials.
Orthotics are used to treat a wide range of diseases, including knee, hip, and leg length disparities, foot and ankle disorders, and even lower back issues.
A percentage of the price for specially designed foot orthotics is typically covered by extended health plans.
