Orthotics: Part 1

Orthotics Part 1: We’ve been getting a lot of questions about Feet 🦶and our opinion on orthotics so Victoria Talks about Hip Pain/Trochanteric Bursitis and Achilles Tendinitis with a Patient story - Check it out! Here are the takeaways: ❇️Don’t rob Peter to pay Paul❗️Sticking something in your shoe can change the mechanics (for good or for bad) and can sometimes cause you another problem. 🤦‍♀️ ❇️Orthotics are not a “cure”- you will still have weak or tight feet 🦶 even if they are pain-free. The best podiatrists send you to Physio/PT 1st and THEN cast your foot if necessary. Because they know that improved mobility in your feet means it may change the shape of your orthotics. And when they do, it’s a CAST, not a “step into this box” type of mold.❇️Stick around for Orthotics Part 2❗️Tell a friend who needs to give their feet 🦶 some TLC 👍 #plantarfasciitis #runners #marathon#trochantericbursitis #hippain #hipbursitis #orthotics
