How One Doctor’s Dream Sparked a Breakthrough in Patient Care

Dr. Monte GreenawaltFoot Levelers is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Our story starts in 1952, at a small practice in Dubuque, IA. A caring young doctor named Dr. Monte Greenawalt was starting out with a dream. His dream was to make the world better through helping others and providing the best chiropractic care possible. 

Dr. Monte recognized the importance of the chiropractic adjustment as a key to optimal health. But right away, he was confronted with challenges. His adjustments weren’t holding as well as he wanted, and his patients were still in pain. Dr. Monte’s love for people and insatiable curiosity led him to seek out the cause of this perplexing problem. 

Over the course of several years, Dr. Monte never gave up in his quest for an answer. Through his research, he discovered the leading role the feet play in the stability of the body. He learned that to maximize the holding power of his adjustments, all three arches of the foot must be properly balanced and stabilized. Then the lightbulb went off. 

Dr. Monte realized that to properly support and stabilize the feet, all three arches had to be taken into consideration. He realized that 16 unique measurements were needed, to incorporate every aspect of total body support. When he developed his prototype and his patients used them, their adjustments held better, their pain was gone, and their quality of life improved. Dr Monte had invented the first spinal pelvic stabilizers. As a result, tens of thousands of healthcare providers and millions of patients have benefitted from his discovery and innovative solutions. 

Over seventy years later and just getting started
