Orthotics and the Benefits with Physical Therapy

By: Cole Monson

Could you need Orthotics?

Orthotics may be recommended by your physical therapist to help align your body or to help support joints. This practice can improve your overall functional mobility. Physical therapists play a critical role in identifying the need for orthotics. The decision to use orthotics is based on the assessment of range of motion, foot alignment, and voluntary control of movement.

Orthotics help improve proper foot alignment and support which is an important part of preventing injuries and treating current injuries. Custom made orthotics crafted by physical therapists can be very beneficial to everyday life. Poor alignment in the feet places stress on the entire body and reduces shock absorption. By improving foot function, orthotics relieve stress in the ankles, legs, knees, hips and back. Ask us today about analyzing your need for orthotics!
