Are Your Patient’s Shoes Causing Pain In Their Body?

Musculoskeletal health is one of the largest costs in healthcare today. With one in two Americans having a musculoskeletal condition, the need for proper support and body alignment has never been greater. A recent survey found that most Americans today wear three pairs of shoes throughout the week. (1) Most of these shoes were not made to support their body, to fit their feet, and are harmful to their musculoskeletal health. Your patient’s health and freedom from pain are important for their quality of life and it starts with continuous support for their body from the ground up.  read more

The Importance of Multiple Pairs

By Dr. Tim Maggs

The feet are the foundation of the body. Just like a house, when the foundation is not level everything that sits atop is not supported and is crooked. This means that normal foot mechanics can adversely influence the normal functions of the ankle, knee, hip, back, and neck. If left untreated, many foot conditions eventually contribute to health concerns up the kinetic chain.

This foot-spine-body connection is one of the most important and most common ones we see in our patients that walk into our office every day. After 40 years of practice and 17 years of digitally scanning every patient’s feet, my simple conclusion is that every human has some degree of arch collapse in their feet. No one is immune to plastic deformation, and the arches of the feet continue to collapse with age. read more

Stay Cool, Look Good and Stay Supported this Summer

By Jennifer Illes, DC 

Summer and warmer weather mean more patients are wearing sandals and flip-flops! They are gaining popularity for use for a variety of occasions for their casual and comfortable style. A survey on 1,000 females showed that approximately 43% of them preferred wearing flip-flops over sports shoes during shopping. (1) And although it’s always fun to kick your typical non-summer footwear aside, sandals are typically known to be the most non-foot-friendly shoes.

The typical sandal or flip-flop is very thin and offers little support or cushioning to the foot. When wearing flip-flops, people tend to alter their gait by taking shorter steps, which often results in hip and lower back pain. 2 And while the sole may seem soft and comfortable, this can cause pain in the heels, arches, ball of the foot, and toes. The foot also ends up over-pronating (rolling inward) in flip-flops, especially with no added support for the arch of the foot. (2) read more
