It is fairly obvious, when you think about it, that the position and comfort of your feet can have a huge impact on all other parts of the body. As the old song said, the ankle bone connected to the leg bone, the leg bone connected to the knee bone, the knee bone connected to the thigh bone and so on. Many of us spend hours a day on our feet in our favorite worn or uncomfortable shoes and then wonder why our back aches or we have a headache or we are exhausted at the end of the day. Looked at from that perspective, it seems clear that there could be a connection here
One way of combating these issues which begin with our feet, is by wearing orthotic inserts in our shoes to help balance our weight and align our joints from the ground up.
At CLC we provide two types of shoe insert supports:
- Step Forward Foot Correctors are custom fitted to your foot and designed not only to give relief but to provide ongoing correction and rehabilitation to your foot tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones. We will take an imprint of your feet, which shows where you are bearing your weight. We then fax the imprints to the manufacturer and they create your orthotics specifically to fit your feet. Included in this service is a custom fitting session and follow up with the chiropractor who will discuss the break in period and any improvements or temporary discomforts you may experience as your body adjusts to improved foot position.
- Superfeet Brand® over-the-counter shoe inserts are an inexpensive product which can provide great relief and support to tired feet. They can also be helpful with painful foot conditions such as plantar fascitis.
