The foot is a complicated part of the body, which has the potential for many different problems. Some people have compared the feet to the foundation of a building. When the foundation begins to collapse it can cause problems to the top of the building.
Bio-mechanical problems with the feet can bring on numerous problems. They can range from feet that the arch collapses to feet that have very high arches. When the arch collapses it will put abnormal strain on many of the structures of the foot and legs, Some of the most common problems that we see are: Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Pain, Arch Pain, Pain in the Ball of the Foot, Neuromas which come from a pinched nerve between the Metatarsal Heads, Tired Feet, Pain when standing, and many others.
Orthotics can be very effective for treating these types of problems. They balance the feet, so that the joints all fit together the best, and the foot will function properly. This may also help problems further up the body.
