“No two feet are the same,” is a philosophy adopted by Dr. Garrett Nelson. With each foot providing its specific and unique anatomy, proper care and support is crucial to one’s longevity. If you, a family member, or a close friend struggle to make it through the day without some sort of foot pain, it may be a condition that is caused by improper biomechanics of the foot. The foot is the foundation of our posture and necessary for many of our daily activities. With improper biomechanics being left untreated, it can lead to numerous different progressive conditions that may continue to spiral out of control.
Correcting one’s biomechanics with a proper examination and support through shoe gear and inserts, often custom orthotics, has multiple benefits. Pain reduction may be the primary driving force for many, but often some don’t experience pain until it is too late. Overuse, stress, and strain from improper mechanics can result in injury. It can provide enhanced stability for those with balance issues or for those that are simply looking to get more pep in their step. Improved athletic performance and faster recovery can be found from those who love being active, such as Dr. Nelson himself.
