Wishing you a warm, safe, and hopefully-not-overly-stuffed Thanksgiving celebration today.

May we take this day, and every day, to be grateful for all the blessings we have in life–our family, friends, the good food we eat, the roofs over our heads, the laughter and moments we share with others.  Let us also remember those less fortunate than us, at home and around the world.

To the doctors and patients we serve, we are ever so thankful to you. YOU are who make Foot Levelers possible. read more

What’s behind the curtain?

In January, Foot Levelers is gearing up to unveil a number of new products…

That’s all we can say for now….

…But don’t worry, it will be worth the wait. 😉

(Check back here or with your DC in January).

Low Back Pain Starts with the Foundation

Get rid of low back pain

It may seem counterintuitive–at first. But if you’re suffering from  low back pain, your feet may be to blame.

Say what??

The research is compelling: “bad” feet are linked to bad backs.  And fixing bad feet–even if they don’t hurt–can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.

Consider this. Your feet are critical to your body structure. They support your entire weight; they balance and propel you; they adapt to and absorb walking stresses. If your feet are problematic–and that’s the case for  3 out of 4 adults, research tells us–they can’t do their job(s) correctly.  That means some of the stress and shock that should have been absorbed by the feet travels up the legs, through the spine, impacting everything above (even headaches have been tied to foot problems–that’s right, headaches!).  It also means your body may be thrown off-balance, even if that’s imperceptible to the naked eye. Step after step, day after day–symptoms worsen as these problems are reinforced. read more

Chiro is Growing! Have YOU Visited a DC Lately?

Chiropractor

Check out this news from the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP): a recent Gallup Poll states an estimated 33.6 million U.S. adults (14 percent) saw a Chiropractor within the last 12 months – that’s big jump from the roughly 20.6 million reported in a previous study.

Why the growth? Experts at the F4CP say the Americans are becoming more confident in the profession. (Hat tip to the foundation folks–they work tirelessly to get the word out about the benefits of Chiropractic. We’re proud that it was founded by our CEO and Chairman, and includes Chiropractic leaders from all over the country.  You can learn more about the foundation here). read more

More Great News from the Profession We Love

Foot Levelers Chiropractic, and apparently hearts “heart” Chiropractic, too: research continues to suggest the blood pressure-lowering benefits of Chiropractic adjustments. The latest study concluded that certain instrument-assisted adjustments to the spine positively affected blood pressure, pulse rate and classification of high blood pressure (cool!).

The study randomly assigned 290 adults with and without hypertension to one of shutterstock_86909228three groups: active, placebo and control, respectively. Following manipulation to T1-T5 vertebrates, blood pressure dropped—approximately 7 percent compared to baseline measurements! The intervention also improved blood pressure classification in many cases. read more
