Custom Orthotics for the Effective Treatment of Pain
Musculoskeletal pain can significantly reduce your quality of life. One of the primary missions of chiropractic medicine is to reduce and remove the pain associated with the skeleton, muscles, tendons and related structures of the body. One of the ways we achieve this is through chiropractic adjustments. But there are many ways to provide adjustment for the effective treatment of pain. Here at Armeli Chiropractic in Mendota Heights, we offer one of the simplest ways of pain treatment, the use of custom orthotics.
What are Orthotics?
These are external devices that help you to maintain a proper and healthy posture and to modify the function of the muscular and skeletal system. The most common form of orthotics is the kind that goes into your shoe to support your foot. People who run long distances for exercise often buy these right off the shelf. But for more serious conditions, a custom orthotic device may be necessary.
Orthotics can be used to treat any pain caused by spinal or skeletal misalignment affected by the way you stand. Practically every person on Earth has one leg that is a little longer than the other. That means the hips and the spine are all but certain to be affected if you walk, stand, or sit for long hours, or if you engage in vigorous exercise.
Chiropractic Care With Orthotics
Research has shown that a chiropractor can deliver treatments for the reduction of knee, hip, lower back, and foot pain. Orthotics is another tool we can use to this end. Experts from Boston University believe that orthotics are always preferable to other more invasive means to provide relief from musculoskeletal pain and discomfort. If you are suffering from pain caused by the way you stand, move, or sit, then custom orthotics might be the right answer.
Common Conditions Treatable Through Orthotics
Any condition that causes the musculoskeletal system to be misaligned can cause pain. These include arthritis, injury, a pinched nerve, problems with the disks of the spine, and more. Conditions related to a simple misalignment of the spine can be treated easily using orthotics. Other conditions require other forms of medical intervention, however, pain relief can still be obtained through the use of custom orthotics.
