Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems.
Custom orthotics help reduce pain and discomfort by restoring the normal balance and alignment of your body and gently correcting foot abnormalities.
Dr. Berenstein partners with orthotic manufacturers to design innovative, comfortable orthotics that are custom moulded to the support requirements of your feet. They are a pleasure to wear as they gently reduce problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine. Over time, custom orthotic support will bring you relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities comfortably no matter where your feet may take you.
