While it is true that chiropractic spinal and cranial care is an integral part of your overall health and well being, many times other biomechanical stresses in your skeletal system can sabotage the balance we are trying to achieve. This is especially true of the human foot. Fallen arches (flat feet), pronation and other abnormalities will cause you to improperly carry the weight of your body. This translates to faulty ankle, knee, hip and pelvic mechanics thereby creating overall skeletal misalignments and stress. In many cases, the subluxations we are trying to correct in your spine will not “stay” because your foundation is tilted. Just like a building, if the base is not supporting what is above it, the whole structure will lean and give in to the effects of gravity.
Our office uses the State of the Art Associate™ Computerized Digital Scanner by Foot Levelers™. This scanner takes precise measurements of your arches and feet. This information, along with an examination performed in our office, is then sent electronically to Foot Levelers™ for your custom order. Unlike hard plastic, uncomfortable orthotics costing $400.00 to $600.00 or more sold by most podiatrist and shoe stores, these shoe inserts are made of a lightweight cushioning material. They absorb the daily stress you put on your feet while still supporting your arches comfortably. The bottom is made from leather so they are durable and long lasting. The cost varies depending on the style and there are discounts available for multiple orders. Approximate cost is in the range of $275 to $325.
Different styles are available for a wide variety of shoes and lifestyles. From individuals with sensitive, arthritic feet to the competitive athlete or for those that require support at work in dress shoes or work boots, Foot Levelers™ has an insert for you. There is even a model for people that work in water or muck (fireman and farmers). Their 1 year guarantee (2 years on their Elite line) also means that there is no risk to you in the event that you are not completely satisfied with them.
If you are interested in orthotics and setting up an exam, please print out and complete the following questionnaire and return it by fax or mail or you can drop it off in person. The digital scan and exam takes about 15 minutes and cost only $30.00.
