How does a night out to hear music from some of the industry’s “great piano men” sound? On January 18, 2014 at the Indian Wells Theater in Palm Desert, CA, you can take in a tribute concert featuring music from Elton John, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, and Little Richard. These great artists who have put their stamp on the music scene definitely deserve recognition, but have you ever thought that your feet do too?
Your feet are the true foundation of your body and carry out a crucial role each and every day. One of the best ways you can pay tribute to their work and treat them well is by wearing orthotics, particularly if you have flat feet. It is often misunderstood that orthotics are only for the elderly or when you have an injury, but there is true power in these foot inserts when it comes to your foot health.
The flattened arch associated with flat feet typically causes feet to overpronate, or roll inward farther than normal. Orthotics put your feet in the best position, so there are no areas of extra strain or pressure. They properly align your feet to improve your stability and balance, and if you have flat feet they will help prevent overpronation. When the overall function of your feet is improved, your ankles, knees, hips and lower back will also benefit.
Whether you have healthy feet, a minor problem, chronic pain, or are recovering from an injury, custom orthotics can become an integral part of maintaining your foot health. If you would like to learn more or be fitted for your own custom inserts, contact Harvey R. Danciger, D.P.M. Call our office in Palm Desert, CA at (760) 568-0108 to make an appointment today.
