Custom Foot Orthotics

When people visit a chiropractor, the're sometimes surprised that the doctor is concerned with their feet. The feet are the foundation of our body. Like a building, the body's foundation must be stable to correctly support the weight above.

At birth most of us have perfect feet. By age 20, 80% of us develop some type of problem. By age 40, foot problems plague virtually every one!

Your feet are the foundation for a healthy posture. There are actually three arches in a normal healthy foot. If one or more of these arches collapse, your body isn't getting correct postural support. Without support, foot problems may contribute to stress and pain in other parts of your body, even if your feet don't hurt.

If it is determined that your condition is complicated by a foot problem, we may perform a digital foot scan, creating an image of the arches of your feet, showing your weight distribution on each foot and indicating any imbalances or weaknesses. Custom foot orthotics could then be prescribed if appropriate.

Take this test:

1. Do you stand or walk on hard surfaces for more than four hours daily?

2. Do you participate regularly in any physical sport (basketball, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, etc.)?

3. Are you age 40 or over?

4. have you had a prior injury to your knee, back or neck?

5. Do your shoes wear unevenly?

6. Do you have joint pain while standing, walking or running?

7. Is one of your legs shorter than the other?

8. Do you have knock-knees or bow legs?

9. Do you have obvious foot problems (bunions, corns, flat feet, etc?)

10. Do your feet "toe out" when you're walking?

If you checked any of the above, your feet should be scanned.
