Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This statement is very true when it comes to a variety of foot and ankle problems. In the same way a faulty foundation will make for a shaky house, when our feet are not properly balanced and supported, problems can arise.
Foot specialists Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt strive to educate their patients on the importance of prevention. Understanding your foot structure and seeking treatment at the beginning of symptoms goes a long way in avoiding future problems and possible surgery. Many foot conditions are progressive, meaning they worsen over time and can have an impact on your knees, hips and back. This makes early intervention essential.
An important resource we provide our patients with is the use of orthotics. Orthotics are simply shoe inserts customized specifically for your feet. They provide a good foundation by:
Providing your feet with the biomechanical balance and control they need will reduce your risk of pain and injury and improve the general function of your feet. They can increase your strength, endurance and performance during your daily activities, at work or during exercise.
