Good posture allows normal movement. Because humans are often upright, our normal posture depends significantly on the alignment of our legs and feet. Altered standing and walking patterns due to any number off alignment problems can result in pain and mechanical breakdown – not just in the feet, but also the knees, hips, and spine. Orthotics are customized shoe inserts that can be utilized either temporarily or long-term to help correct alignment and mechanical disorders, to relieve pain, or to limit progression of dysfunction. At Symmetry Physical Therapy, we help patients to establish optimal movement patterns with the utilization of both over-the-counter products and individually designed custom-built orthotics. Our goal is the restoration of normal and natural lower body function.
