Loving the Snow?

Neither are we. If you’re like us (located in the southeastern U.S.) and many of those we serve, you’ve had just about enough of the white stuff.

Trade in the snow for sand with the Coastline Seabreeze, our new individually designed orthotic flip-flop.  Even if a fabulous Caribbean escape isn’t in your immediate plans, Seabreeze feels so good on your feet that you’ll forget about the Snowpocolypse outside (well, almost). While we don’t recommend the Seabreeze for outdoor wear in the cold and ice, it’s perfect for lounging around the house, doing chores, or just relaxing with the thermostat or fire cranked up high. Plus… Spring is not that far away. We promise. read more

Every Shoe Tells a Story: What Do Yours Say?

Shoes are like books, and every pair tells a story. Your healthcare professional can “read” yours to learn a lot about your lifestyle and health, specifically your risk for postural conditions. Your feet are your body’s foundation, so shoes that are worn out, poorly constructed, or don’t fit properly can shift the entire body “off-kilter,” and cause problems in your legs, knees, hips, pelvis, and spine.

Here are a couple of clues that your postural problems need to be addressed: read more

And Now, A Word from Our Doctors…

We received this great message from Dr. Amy Olson in Birmingham, Michigan about her marathon-running patient!

“One of my most memorable patients, an avid runner, suffered from knee and shin pain when I first saw her. The runner was forced to abandon her goals of marathon events but one day said, ‘Forget this!,’ and made an appointment to see me, determined to run in the 2010 Chicago marathon.

She suffered from two very common problems: pelvic torsion, causing a leg-length discrepancy, and the inability to maintain the arches of her feet in a weight-bearing position. Both of these conditions are extremely common and can lead to problems such as: plantar fasciitis, shin splints, patellar tracking dysfunction (knee pain), low back pain, upper back pain, neck pain, and even headaches. For a runner these problems can become magnified due to the extreme stress on the joints of the spine, legs and feet. read more
