Orthotics or not?
Another pair of feet just earned their freedom!👏 Do you think you need orthotics❓
Here’s a question for ya! If you have neck or back pain do you think wearing a neck or back brace is a sustainable strategy? Will that neck/back brace fix your neck or back problem? So why is wearing orthotics OK for foot pain or shin pain or knee pain or hip pain or back pain⁉️
Maybe you’re not getting to the ‘WHY’ of the problem!👆
Now … we’re not saying that you should never wear orthotics. There are great reasons to use them on a short-term basis & sometimes on a long-term basis, but so many of our clients come in wearing them because someone told them they have flat feet – when they really have high arches & vise versa. It’s not, “you have pain somewhere below the waist & you have flat/arched feet so orthotics are the answer.” 😤There are so many sneakers/shoes that will support your feet properly if chosen wisely.
Maybe there’s a reason why your feet are too flat or too arched? Remember that your ankle is connected to your tibia & that’s connected to your femur & that’s connected to your 🍖 – & it keeps going up & up (so it’s all connected folks!) #movehealchange
