Orthotics and its Infinite Benefits

Scientists describe Orthotics as a science which is mainly associated with the functional correction of the skeletal system by manufacturing and designing of ‘orthosis’. Fields like biomechanics, anatomy, pathophysiology and engineering govern this science. Orthotics deal with alignment of body parts with external aide, enable comfortable movement, assist in control of movement of body parts, pain reduction in certain stressed body parts and to help in recovery from fractures and other such problems. Orthotics has also been employed in the field of sports to enhance performance.Metals, elastic, carbon fibers, thermoplasticsand many other kinds of materials are used in the production of orthosis. Foot orthotics is very popular because a large part of the demography generally suffers from problems related with the alignment and positioning of ankles, feet and knees.However, orthotics is a field which is also extended to the hips, spinal cord area, shoulders and arms.

Why Prefer Foot Orthotics?

Foot orthotics can be very effective in reducing muscle fatigue and can also optimize the performance of the muscle. When parts of the leg are stressed in various ways repeatedly it can lead to the wear and tear of the connective tissues which can cause the bones to become instable. To cope with such problems, foot orthotics is indeed a great solution. a complete range of orthosis are now available in the market to help relieve the individuals who suffer from various kinds of biomechanical problems. Individuals who are obese or are involved in sports can gain significantly by using foot orthotics.

Foot problems are a problem that is faced by a lot of people on a daily basis. Most of these problems are progressive in nature and are capable of developing into other problems. An early diagnosis and use of the correct feet orthotics to reposition, correct or align your feet can result in complete recovery from the problem and also prevent aggravating of feet related problems. If the patient suffers from plantar fasciitis, i.e., swelling of the arch of the feet because of excessive stress on this part, then, along with other treatments, using a pair of orthotics will help rectify this problem.

Embrace the Benefits

Most of us will need to embrace the benefits of orthotics because in this time and age, incorrect body postures owing to your lifestyle can cause major problems. Upper limb orthosis, spinal orthosis, knee orthosis etc. are available for specific body part. Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves can be effectively treated by using spine orthosis. Spinal orthosis can also be used to rectify fractures in the spinal cord area. Using of spinal orthosis for such issues also help in body posture corrections. It is observed that correct body posture means that the comfort with which movement happens has increased.

People with diabetes, arthritis and Achilles are recommended to take advantages of orthotics. Once it is diagnosed that any of the above problems are aggravating in a person’s body due to the body mechanics’ inefficiency then, use of orthotics is an effective solution. athletes use orthotics so that their performances can be enhanced. Many noted athletes depend on customized orthotics so that their feet are aligned always. Orthotics allows muscles, tendons and ligaments of the feet to be used with maximum efficiency. Orthotics also protects an athlete’s foot from injury and relieves pain.

As indicated above, when connective tissues degenerate they cause instability in the bones. This is a condition which is common amongst the elderly people. Orthotics helps in achieving improved coordination and balancing abilities in them as they generally tend to suffer from the fear of falling down. These falls may result in fracturing of the bones. This is not a pleasant situation for the older people because recuperating from such fractures takes a longer time and causes a lot of discomfort. Orthotics keeps the structural deficiencies in check by aiding structural alignment which decreases as and how a person grows old.

Prefer the Services of an Experienced Orthotist

A very well qualified and experienced Orthotist will be able to guide the patient correctly and take care of his problems. It is essential to consult a podiatrist who is specialized in feet care so that he can help the patient in this direction. Orthosis improves movements of body parts so that the discomfort caused by restricted movement is prevented. It is important to aid the body with orthosis to help in uniform distribution of the body weight so that there is no excess stress on the heel or the arch of the foot. Orthosis is also known for having effectively postponed the requirement of surgery procedures.

 Until I sprained my ankle I never appreciated that  part of my foot. I had to take a back seat every sports session and let my colleague take over the coaching. With the orthoses I got from 'Look after your feet', my ankle healed. Am back on the pitch.
