Foot Orthotics

In Phoenix, AZ

Foot orthotics are integral in addressing various foot-related concerns and providing support and comfort to individuals experiencing discomfort. Whether customized or prefabricated, orthotic devices are strategically placed inside footwear to enhance several aspects of foot health.

Primarily, foot orthotics are designed to offer support to the arches of the feet, but orthotics often also incorporate cushioning materials to absorb shock and lessen pressure on sensitive areas of the feet to enhance overall comfort on the go.

By correcting alignment and providing targeted support, these devices reduce strain on muscles and joints, promote better biomechanical function, and decrease the risk of injury during physical activity.

Individuals dealing with conditions like plantar fasciitis can particularly benefit from the use of foot orthotics. By addressing underlying biomechanical issues and providing necessary support, orthotics can alleviate pain and facilitate recovery from this common foot ailment.

The Role of Foot Arches in the Day-to-Day

The human foot contains three primary arches: the medial longitudinal arch, the lateral longitudinal arch, and the transverse arch. These arches are formed by the arrangement of bones, ligaments, and tendons, creating a dynamic structure that provides shock absorption, stability, and propulsion.

The medial longitudinal arch, which runs along the inner side of the foot from the heel to the ball, acts as a natural shock absorber that reduces stress on the bones and joints with each step. Similarly, the lateral longitudinal arch, located along the outer edge of the foot, helps to stabilize the foot and maintain balance during movement.

The transverse arch, which spans the width of the foot, plays a critical role in maintaining the foot’s structural integrity and facilitating weight transfer from the heel to the toes during propulsion. When the foot arches are properly supported and functioning optimally, they help to maintain proper alignment of the bones and joints.

Weak or collapsed arches, also known as flat feet or fallen arches, can disrupt the foot’s natural mechanics and lead to various issues such as overpronation, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and knee or hip pain. Conversely, excessively high arches can also cause problems such as supination, instability, and increased risk of stress fractures.

How Do the Physicians at TriMotus Utilize Cupping Treatments?

Whether patients are seeking relief from pain, inflammation, muscle tension, or stress, the TriMotus team tailors cupping therapy to each individual’s needs. Depending on the patient’s condition and preferences, cupping may be performed using dry cupping, running cupping, or bleeding cupping techniques.

Dry cupping is a common technique where cups are applied to the skin to create suction without the use of heat. The cups are typically placed on specific areas of the body and left in position for a few minutes. This method helps to improve blood circulation, release muscle tension, and promote relaxation.

Running cupping, also known as moving cupping, involves applying cups to the skin and then moving them along the muscles or meridian lines. The cups may gently glide across the skin or move in a circular motion to target larger muscle groups and areas of tension.

Bleeding cupping is a more traditional form of cupping where small incisions are made in the skin before applying the cups. As the cups create suction, they draw out a small amount of blood from the incisions. This technique can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the natural healing process.

Following the cupping session, patients may experience rounded red marks along the treatment area, which typically fade within a few days. While minimal pain and tenderness may be experienced initially, there is no significant downtime associated with cupping therapy.

Candidates for Foot Orthotics

Those experiencing foot pain, discomfort, or fatigue during daily activities can benefit significantly from orthotic devices.

More specifically, individuals with structural abnormalities like flat feet, high arches, or other issues will require orthotic care for lasting relief—this is also true of individuals seeking relief from plantar fasciitis, bunions, or neuromas.

At TriMotus, we provide personalized orthotic solutions to help individuals achieve greater comfort, mobility, and overall foot health. Schedule a consultation today for real, long-lasting relief.
