The whole body is a kinetic chain, connected from our toes to our nose. One part that that we take for granted is the foot. The driving force from every step comes from the foot and having improper support and stability can throw the whole chain off.

We all know how important having supportive shoes is, especially for folks who are walking the city streets, the pavement can take a toll on commuters to and from the train/bus or to the office. Many of us grab our tennis shoes and tote “work” shoes in a bag to change to change into once we’ve reached our destination. 

Custom made orthotics help to reduce discomfort while enhancing support in the foot. Packaged inserts, unless prescribed by a doctor and crafted for your specific foot, is a shoe insert, not a custom orthotic. Custom made orthotics for your feet specifically work for YOUR feet, providing
the proper support in the right places creating proper alignment, and helping to address 
foot problems or cure long-standing foot issues.

Custom orthotics can be made by a Chiropractor and can be of great benefit to your chiropractic treatments. As the end of the year approaches, deductibles are met and HSA funds are still available, for your to use,  don’t let those go to waste. Schedule your chiropractic visit and learn if the root of your problem is connect to your feet.
In good health,
