OrthoticsPrins Chiropractic in Albany CA
Examination of one’s feet usually reveals pressure points, loss of arch, bunion deformity, chronic foot fungus and other critical information.
It surprises many that we will often focus on the feet, when the problem seems located in the neck or lower back. Yet, your pelvis and feet are the foundation of your spine. Problems in one area can create compensatory problems in the other.
Better Posture Starts With Your Feet
Having studied feet biomechanics, I came to the conclusion years ago that to properly support the body and feet, an orthotic needs to be made in a specific manner. You cannot step in a foam box and create an optimal device to aid your body toward better support and biomechanical normalcy.
Similar to what most podiatrists make, we take many measurements of all parts of one’s feet. Then, cast their feet in a non-weight bearing position, with plaster. We have been partnering for 20 plus years with an orthosis laboratory located in Southern California. The lab technicians and I consult on every pair ordered. This is the same lab that makes orthotics for the LA Lakers!
These are custom shoe inserts that support all three arches in your feet. They aid in creating a healthier, more stable foundation for your entire body. These subtle imbalances contribute to postural misalignments, knee pain, hip problems, head tilt, forward leaning head carriage and general fatigue.
Best of all, not only do they work great, they feel great!
