Custom Foot Support
Just what the doctor ordered! What part of your body suffers the most physical stress daily? If you guessed your feet, you’re right. Your feet give you needed mobility and support for work and play. They are the foundation of your body. Most foot pain is the result of faulty alignment and function of the bones and muscles of your feet. Everyone has approximately 30 bones in each leg – 26 of which are in each foot. We depend on these bones to move us forward when we walk. With each step you take more than 208 muscles are used. These muscles exert their effect on the knees, hips, lower back and all the bones holding your body upright. Therefore, it is not surprising that many knee, hip and back pains are a result of poor functioning feet.
