What are orthotics?

Orthotics are devices designed to align your ankles and feet into anatomically correct positions. They fit comfortably in your shoes to improve the way you walk and ease foot and back pain. Custom orthotics are designed just for you using imprints of your feet. They reduce unnecessary strain and stress on your body to improve overall health and wellness.

What are orthotics used for?

Orthotics help improve poor foot and body mechanics related to one or more of the following conditions:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Leg or knee pain
  • Arch or heel pain
  • Chronic foot pain
  • Back or hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Abnormal gait or poor posture
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Spinal misalignment

The team at Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center works with Orthotic Group to correct body imbalances using orthotics that mold perfectly to your feet. Custom orthotics may prevent an injury from turning serious, so you can avoid pain medication and invasive surgery.

What is IntelliSkin?

IntelliSkin is a revolutionary technology made of compression wear that supports your body to improve posture and spinal alignment. It stimulates nerve receptors that send cues to your brain to cause tight muscles to relax.

This type of compression provides stability and support to help you stand up straighter. It uses the concepts of Kinesio taping to facilitate your body’s natural healing ability, increase muscular strength, and prevent injuries. You might wear a compression t-shirt, compression pants, or hip alignment shorts when using IntelliSkin.

Some IntelliSkin products even offer cooling technology to enhance comfort while training in the heat. Follow your practitioner’s instructions regarding how often to wear IntelliSkin.

Are orthotics right for me?

Your provider will let you know which type of orthotics or IntelliSkin is right for you based on your health, posture, and gait. They might recommend orthotics in addition to chiropractic care, massage, rehabilitation exercises, regenerative medicine, or other holistic treatments for pain and injuries. Sometimes simply having the right type of footwear relieves your symptoms.
