NORCROSS, GA, December 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Atlanta based orthopaedic group, OrthoAtlanta, states that custom orthotics can bring balance to your posture, improve flexibility and assist with joint motility. Atlanta orthopaedic doctors agree, keeping the body in balance is essential to healthy muscles and joints.
Custom orthotics can help stabilize the body when standing or in motion. When a body is unbalanced, it can wear down knee joints, causing damage and eventual pain. Atlanta orthopaedic surgeons at OrthoAtlanta state that these injuries to knee joints may be prevented with custom orthotics.
"If the foot is pronated, it can wear down delicate joints, such as the knees," said Dr. Sharrona Williams, Atlanta Foot and Ankle Surgeon with OrthoAtlanta . "Keeping the feet balance and even to the rest of the body is one of the way to help prevent joint damage. Minimizing joint damage can help individuals lead a more productive life."
Custom orthotics can help alleviate back pain as well. Atlanta orthopaedic doctors believe that keeping your feet and knees in proper alignment can help ease lower back pain by eliminating repetitive motion injuries. Repetitive motion injuries caused by pronation in the feet can create an abnormal gait, and weaken the lower back muscles.
Orthopaedic doctors agree that proper foot alignment can ease many of the aches and pains individuals suffer from on a daily basis. Early treatment of abnormal gaits caused by improper foot alignment can help prolong or even eliminate the need for damage repair to the joints.
Only a podiatrist or an orthopaedic doctor can properly fit an individual for orthotics. If you believe you have pronation of the feet or another orthopaedic injury, it is best to speak with an orthopaedic doctor before adding custom orthotics to your shoes.
