Proper biomechanical control of the feet provides the foundation for the way our body performs.

1. Make your body work optimally

The main purpose of your foot orthotics is to realign the biomechanics of your body, thus ensuring that it functions as it should. By wearing your orthotics more frequently and for longer periods of time, they work to slow the aging of the joints, prevent pain and promote better muscle performance.

2. Strengthen your muscle tone

By realigning the biomechanics of your body, your foot orthotics work your feet the right way and your muscles too. By working out in the right way, your muscle tone is strengthened which contributes to the optimal functioning of your body.

3. Relieve your pain

Wearing plantar orthoses is very effective for the treatment of several ailments. They act mainly on the level of pain by treating the pathology in a biomechanical way. This means that your orthotics will correct your posture or the position of your feet when you wear them in order to treat your pain.

Indeed, for ailments caused by conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Moncton’s neuroma, hammer toes, hallux valgus and many others, wearing your plantar orthotics acts directly on the mechanical treatment of these pathologies and offers relief. so that you can continue your activities!

4. Prevent injury

You may not suspect it, but wearing your orthotics more often and longer, while sticking to your treatment plan, can certainly help you avoid injuries to your lower limbs, among other things.

Imagine you have a job that requires you to be on your feet for a long part of the day. Well, wearing your foot orthotics during those days at work ensures that your posture is supported and optimal and that your career does not interfere with the biomechanical development of your body. You can stay strong on both feet and prevent future injuries.

5. Improve your posture

You may be surprised to learn that one of your body’s goals is to position your eyes parallel to the ground. So a small difference in the length of your legs, for example, will force everything else in your body to adjust incorrectly (your hips, spine, etc.) to ensure your eyes are parallel to the ground.

This scenario is only one example among many others, but demonstrates the influence of your plantar orthotics on your posture! By wearing them frequently and for long periods of time, you allow your body’s biomechanics to return to their optimal shape and your posture is automatically improved. Your feet are realigned and therefore your legs, hips, back and neck no longer need to compensate.
