Your feet are the “foundation” of your health. Problems in the feet can set off a chain reaction of symptoms, including uneven shoe wear, irregular gait, arch pains, knee pain, back pain, and even headaches! If examination concludes that there is a problem, custom-made orthotics may be recommended to correct an anatomically short leg, pronation problems, and postural and structural abnormalities. The procedure for fitting you for the orthotics takes very little time and is easy to do. Once an impression cast is taken of your feet, it is sent to a laboratory, where your customized orthotics are designed and tailored for your specific needs. If you experience chronic hip or back pain or if you experience foot pain in your day-to-day activities, or in your sport of choice, custom-made orthotics may be part of the solution.
It’s A Chain Reaction
Research has shown that 98% of lower back injuries and pain are mechanical in nature, not pathological. Pain that you may feel in your neck or lower back could be caused by a misalignment in your spine which may be caused by an imbalance in your feet. See? It’s a chain reaction.
Poor alignment and biomechanics of the spine (subluxations) can do more harm than simply cause you pain. Subluxations left uncorrected squeeze and irritate delicate nerve fibers and can cause a decreased function and regulation of your organs and internal systems.
