We offer Foot Levelers® Custom Orthotics for patients experiencing foot, ankle, knee, hip or low back pain. The Foot Levelers orthotic is an insert for your shoe that helps to alleviate pain and improve balance and function.
The human foot has 26 bones and 33 joints and they are all connected by ligaments. These ligaments make up three main arches and act like shock absorbers for your feet. When healthy, these springy structures handle the stress of your feet hitting the ground hundreds to thousands of times per day. However, as we get older and accumulate microtraumas, these ligamentous structures can lose their shape and the arches can drop or flatten.
Foot Levelers orthotics plus Chiropractic care reduce Low Back Pain by 40.4 percent.
Foot Levelers orthotics significantly reduce Low Back Pain — by 34.5 percent.
Foot Levelers alone or in conjunction with Chiropractic care improves function—by 18.5 percent and 32.3 percent, respectively.
Without strong supporting arches your feet stop absorbing the crushing force from walking and running. Instead, those forces might now be transmitted through your ankles, knees, hips, and potentially your lower back and neck with devastating results. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports 80 percent of adults experience Low Back Pain at some point in their lifetime, and it’s the single-leading cause of disability worldwide, with many taking prescription drugs for pain relief – which often leads to long-term drug abuse and addiction.
A custom orthotic insert is designed to act as a firm supporting structure that maintains the proper shape of your arches whether the body is in motion or standing in place. By using a Foot Levelers orthotic support, suffers of foot, knee, hip, and low back pain can potentially reduce the stress on the affected areas. Consistent use has been found to improve foot biomechanics and improve physical performance.
The Foot Levelers 3D BodyView® Imaging Unit identifies asymmetries in the feet with Arch Height Mapping, illustrates how the feet impact the entire kinetic chain, and can generate foot assessments in under 60 seconds. This allows the perfect orthotic to be built using the most precise and accurate imaging system on the market. Ask our staff about starting your assessment today!
