Can orthotics cause leg pain?

Biocorrect, LLC


There is a lot of conflicting information out there about orthotics, including their effectiveness and the associated risk of side effects. One reason for this is the wide range of products that are out there, from mass-produced insoles to prescription orthotics, all made with varying materials and approaches to biomechanical design. Since not all orthotics are created equal, it follows that some orthotics will be less effective and have a higher chance of causing problems than others. 

One particular risk of lower-quality or poorly designed orthotics is leg pain. Orthotics are built to alter the mechanics of the feet in order to relieve pain and provide support and comfort throughout the day. However, if the mechanics are not altered carefully, it can simply transfer stress up the kinetic chain, causing compensatory issues that include leg pain. 

That’s why it’s important to select insoles that are designed to not interfere with your lower body mechanics. As an alternative to both lower-quality store-bought insoles and expensive prescription orthotics, Biocorrect is proud to offer an effective alternative. 

Biocorrect orthotics are expertly crafted to promote natural mechanics

Biocorrect is a fully customizable orthotic system and lab that is backed by more than two decades of expertise. Where other manufacturers will overemphasize quick fixes like arch support, our orthotics are designed to promote heel-to-toe foot alignment. Since the entire lower body is highly interconnected, this approach means that wearing our orthotics will not place undue stress on other parts of the body, including the legs. 

In fact, our full line of orthotic insoles are used by people seeking relief from a wide range of injuries and conditions affecting the lower body, including: 

  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Achilles tendinitis and ankle pain
  • Leg pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Lower back pain

By improving alignment in your kinetic chain, Biocorrect orthotics can help you reduce stress on your muscles and joints and potentially prevent pain and injury.
