Orthotics and Massage

Orthotics and massage are two excellent alternative therapies for relieving pain. The process of orthotics involves the use of biomechanical appliances that have been customized to your foot in order to correct foot imbalances.

It can be likened to wearing glasses when you’re having eye problems. In this case, however, our orthotics process is used in your foot area.

It helps your body release pain. It does this because your customized orthotic works to help align your feet properly. It does this through a process of redirecting how your foot operates its motion as you walk by optimizing the height of your arch.

The custom orthotics I use inside my San Francisco practice are “made to design”. You’ll barely feel it as it’s placed with utmost attention to detail in your shoe.

Who Should Use Orthotics?

Orthotics should be used if you suffer from bunions or hammer toes, localized foot pain, and when experiencing pain in the arch or leg. Other conditions my custom orthotics will help with:

  • Shin splints
  • Feet cramps
  • Pain in the balls of your feet
  • Knee pain
  • Blisters
  • Ingrown nails
  • Calluses
  • Flat feet
  • Toes that need straightening
  • Back pain
  • Soreness simple from walking

If you’re suffering from frequent hip pain you can also benefit from this alternative device.

A properly fitted orthotics device will provide support for your feet. It’s created to assist with properly distributing the weight of your body in a balanced way. One of the main goals is to reduce the pressure being experienced by your joints.

How Does it Work?

When you visit my office, I’ll evaluate the way you walk and perform what’s called gait analysis in order to determine if you’re in need of custom foot orthotics. Learn more here

Over the years I’ve found using orthotics and massage together is extremely beneficial to your overall health and with reducing chronic pain issues.
