A Number Of Orthotics Benefits
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are a great number of reasons why one should look into buying a pair of custom orthotics. Custom orthotics provide relief from a variety of health issues, they deliver a significant decrease in general pain and stress, and on top of all of that, they help decrease foot odor. Furthermore, as the technology used to design and manufacture insoles has become more efficient, the price has dropped considerably while the quality has been maintained. Also, when speaking of the technology, it is now possible to go through the entire process online or on a smartphone, thus negating the need to go to a doctor for a special mold, or wait around for it to be delivered, only to ship it back out again.

Custom orthotics are a regular first stop for doctors, physical therapists and podiatrists. They all agree that and have all found in their experience and research, that insoles decrease the effects of a variety genetic disorders or conditions that effects people on a daily basis. Insoles accomplish this by encouraging the joints, bones and muscles to realign in accordance with what is medically considered to be the most efficient way possible. By incorporating various layers of stiff plastic and soft EVA foam, the custom orthotics are able to gently press everything into positions that relieve that strain, and relieve that stress that people experience in their everyday lives.

The pieces of material are one thing, but the technology that has gone into placing them together is something else entirely. Previously, the process was lengthy, and required either the assistance of a doctor, or a complicated process of making an impression of one’s feet in a mold shipped by the manufacturer to the customer’s home. There were lengthy periods of wait, difficult procedures and at the end of the day, a fairly hefty price tag. Now however, the process has become almost entirely digital. Through things like image recognition algorithms, three dimensional printers, and smartphones, the dimensions required by the manufacturer to create the actual insoles can be acquired without the need of a mold.

As a result of all of these advancements in tech, and the removal of the most expensive procedures in the process, the price of custom orthotics has dropped from several hundred dollars down to, fifty. There is no more reason to spend all that money when the same exact insoles can be bought for literally fractions of the price.
