Orthotics Chiropractor At Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center
If you are suffering from chronic pain, there are ways to get this treated and cured. The chiropractors at Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center in Thousands Oaks, CA would love to help you out. Below is more information on orthotics and how they can help with your chronic pain.
What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are medical devices that can help relieve foot pain you are experiencing from a sports injury, work injury, injury from lifestyle choices, or an accident you were in. These prescription-only devices can help correct foot issues you have with walking, standing, and running. Foot pain experienced from arthritis, diabetes, bursitis, and plantar fasciitis can be relieved by wearing these special devices. For those who don't want surgery due to flat feet can also use these devices to avoid surgery. Below is some information about how orthotics mobilize the foot versus bracing the foot for recovery and pain relief.
Mobilizing the Foot vs Bracing the Foot
There are different types of orthotics for different needs. The two most common types of orthotics are rigid orthotics or "functional orthotics" and soft orthotics also referred to as "accommodative orthotics. Functional orthotics are made from carbon fiber, plastic, or similar materials. These orthotics are made to reduce foot pain such as strains and aches, and pain in the thighs, legs, and lower back. These types of orthotics work well with dress shoes or walking shoes that have low heels and closed toes.
Accommodative orthotics are usually made with soft compression materials. These types of orthotics relieve pressure from conditions like diabetic foot ulcers or plantar fasciitis, which have areas that are sore or uncomfortable.
Concerning mobilization and bracing the foot, orthotics can do both. Based on the pain you are experiencing and your lifestyle, you may need one over the other.
