Orthotics are an eligible expense for your Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
Foot orthotics allow the muscles, tendons and bones of the feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. When appropriately prescribed, orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back. They can also increase stability in an unstable joint, prevent a deformed foot from developing additional problems, correct improper biomechanics and improve overall quality of life.
Remember that your feet support the whole of your body whenever you walk or stand. Flat or rigid feet will lead to other physical problems besides foot and ankle pain. More common things like knee, hip, low back pain and lumbar arthritis will occur. The feet are the foundation:
Keeping your feet properly aligned directly affects your quality of life. Foot pain keeps millions from getting the physical activity they need for proper health. This is very important not only to older people, who commonly suffer from foot-related ailments, but also athletes and those who spend time on their feet. Physical activity is important to your health, and foot pain can prevent you from getting the workout your body needs.
Foot orthotics take various forms and are constructed of various materials. All have the goal of improving foot function and minimizing stress forces that could ultimately cause inefficient biomechanics and pain. we take great efforts in the custom design which is unique to each patient and foot, the materials used and the accuracy of the orthotics we produce.
