Why ‘Custom Orthotics’ Matters

importance-of-custom-orthotics

Considering custom orthotics? Maybe your Chiropractor recommended custom orthotics to help treat a painful condition, like low back pain, knee pain or plantar fasciitis.  Or perhaps you’re an athlete who wants to improve your performance on the field while protecting yourself from injury. Head to toe (and everywhere in between), research shows that the feet play a critical role in whole-body wellness. Custom orthotics can help keep them balanced and healthy.

But you may be wondering to yourself: why is custom such a big deal when it comes to orthotics?  After all, generic, off-the-shelf inserts are cheaper, and they’re everywhere, lining the shelves of a number of pharmacies, super stores, even some grocery stores. Their bright and flashy packaging promises the world: “Get relief from runner’s knee!” “Soothe arthritis pain!”  “Helps with low back pain! read more

Custom Molded, Flexible, Three Arch Custom Orthotics are an Effective Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

Foot Levelers Plantar Fasciitis and Plantar Heel Pain

by Kevin Wong, DC

Our feet are perhaps the most overused and under-appreciated parts of the human body. We use them relentlessly, depending on them daily to bear our body weight, transport us places and allow us to stand, walk and run. Only in cases where they are painful do we bother to have them looked at. Even then, proper and complete knowledge of the feet, their movement patterns and their effects on the rest of the body are rarely adequately taught.

In the world of foot pain, heel pain and plantar fasciitis are among the most common ailments people consult a medical provider for. Up to ten percent of the population will present with heel pain over the course of their lives, and it can affect everyone who engages in weight-bearing physical activity. (1) It is important for the healthcare consumer to understand the various treatment options available. read more

5 Reasons to Choose Custom Orthotics for the Treatment of Low Back Pain

1. The feet are the body’s foundation. Just like a building, fixing problems in the foundation can help with problems throughout the structure.

“…I have to load 5,000 pigs every 4 months. This entails many hours of walking on cement alleyways. I couldn’t help load without my Foot Levelers!” –Farmer Donita Koberg Platz of Minnesota

2. “Bad” feet are linked to bad backs—the research proves it. Fixing bad feet can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.

3. Your feet may feel just fine—but they could be causing problems up above. Foot imbalance or dysfunction is often “silent,” but it can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the low back. read more

    What Custom Orthotics Did for Heather’s Plantar Fasciitis

    We love to hear from folks who have gotten better, faster, stronger, more pain-free-er using our custom orthotics.  Here’s what Heather from Maple Grove, Minnesota shared with us last week:

    “For years I suffered on and off with plantar fasciitis. Last fall it was so severe that I had to stop exercising because I was in so much pain. People told me to try custom orthotics, but I never did because I didn’t think they would help me. Heather BlumerI finally tried over-the-counter orthotics but they didn’t help at all. After suffering for so many years, I finally decided I would try custom orthotics by Foot Levelers. Wow! What a difference they have made! I no longer wake up in the morning with heel pain. I can go running once again! I’ve also used the FootWheel which has been a tremendous help! The combination of the custom orthotics and the FootWheel have made such a difference in my life!” read more
