How do you fix body pain?
The answer can depend on a lot of things: age, weight, height and activity level to name a few.
There may be an easy thing worth trying: orthotics.
Foot Levelers in Roanoke specializes in making custom orthotics. The goal of orthotics is to restore the arches in your feet with the hope of giving you good balance an posture.
Experts we spoke to say to think about your feet like the foundation of your house. If your foundation isn't properly supported, the whole thing could crack. The body is the same way; if the feet, the foundation of your body, aren't properly supported, then your body could be in pain.
It is possible to have foot pain without body pain, but it's also possible to have body pain without foot pain. Experts say that eventually, it can catch up to you.
A pair of good orthotics can run between three and six hundred dollars; a small price to pay instead of expensive and painful surgeries. While there are other options available, experts say the flimsy, name brand orthotics you can buy in stores won't do the trick as well as orthotics that are customized to your feet.
