Foot Levelers Custom Orthotic featured on “The Doctors” TV Show

Whose custom orthotics are under that tape?

So, our custom orthotics got some national exposure last week, but because of pesky little sponsorship restrictions, you wouldn’t have known it!

There was a segment on the syndicated TV show The Doctors about relieving back pain — which products work, and which don’t.

What’s best for your shoes, insoles or custom orthotics?

The guest on the segment was Dr. Fab Mancini, a huge advocate of Chiropractic. He used to be the President of Parker University (Chiropractic college) and has appeared on Dr. Phil, ABC, CNN, FOX, and many other national platforms getting the word out about all the benefits Chiropractic offers. 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.

Genetics plays a significant role in the collapse of the arches in the feet. However, factors like shoe types, activity levels, and injuries can play a role. The shoes that people buy, whether they are athletic or dress, tend to provide minimal support for the feet. It is more fashion than function. If one looks at the bottom of most shoes, there is minimal arch support present. In most cases, the body goes years with imbalances and learns to compensate for the collapsed arches. This leads to pain in the ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck.

As an architectural structure, the feet are the foundation, and all work must begin thereby addressing the imbalances in the feet and the impact they are having up the kinetic chain. Using the Structural Fingerprint® Exam, we assess the biomechanical imbalances with every test. We do-leg length, muscle tenderness, joint mobility, digital foot scan and then the biomechanical x-rays. These assessments help demonstrate imbalances, fixations, distortion patterns and in many cases, dysfunction.

In most cases, the body has gone years with imbalances and has learned to compensate for the collapsed arches and the abnormal biomechanics. Re-educating the body is critically important, and that starts with Foot Levelers custom orthotics. Once Foot Levelers custom orthotics are introduced to the foot and shoe, the body will go through a re-education period. Just by wearing the custom orthotics, the feet are forced to exercise different muscle groups to align the body and provide full body support.

Re-educating the body is critically important and can only be truly successful when the patient has continuity of support in all their shoes. A study in Time Magazine found that the average person has 27 pairs of shoes. Due to the multiple shoe types we all wear, it is critically important to equip each shoe type with a custom orthotic. Without the continuity of proper support across shoe types, the body will revert to and compensate for the imbalances and diminish your patient’s outcomes.

This means that we as providers need to address that issue at our report of findings. Take the time to understand how many different shoe types the patient wears, walk slowly through the explanation of cost, and stand firm on the importance of wearing them continually. The continuity of wearing these supports cannot be over-emphasized. The result will be a win-win for you and your patient.

For all my patients, I start out by recommending two pairs. A recent survey found that 61% of respondents said they wore two or three pairs of shoes in a week. A great start is recommending one pair for their athletic shoes and one for their work or dress shoes. These two pairs of custom orthotics alone will cover a majority of their week and ensure that they have the consistent support their body needs no matter what shoes they are wearing.

FOOT LEVELERS LAUNCHES NEW CUSTOM ORTHOTIC FOR WOMEN

ROANOKE, VA, June 25, 2018 – Foot Levelers, the world’s leading provider of custom orthotics, is excited to announce the launch of its 5th Avenue collection, a line of custom orthotics designed by women for women.

Heels and flats are some of the trendiest shoes for women however, they are also some of the worst for the feet and body because they provide minimal comfort and no arch support. Women are left to decide between shoes that look good with their outfit or shoes that feel good. Women’s feet should be comfortable, and their body fully supported no matter what shoes they are wearing.

The new 5th Avenue Stabilizing Orthotics are designed to provide comfort, support, and pain relief for women in flats and heels up to two inches. The luxurious top cover and super-soft mid-layer help keep the feet comfortable while the arch corrections keep the body balanced. The slim design helps the 5th Avenue fit easily into women’s flats and heels. It is perfect for women who spend hours on the job but need the comfort, support, and pain relief to keep going during and after the work-day ends.

“Women should be able to wear shoes that fit their outfit without the dread of how they are going to make their feet or body feel. With 5th Avenue custom orthotics, women can wear flats and heels that are comfortable for the feet and that provide the support the body needs. Wearing flats and heels has never felt better,” said Dawn Galbraith, Senior Vice President of Foot Levelers. 

The 5th Avenue collection is available for patients today! Now women can have the comfort, support, and pain relief their body deserves wearing flats and heels. They also make a perfect second pair! To order call 800.553.4860.

    Media Alert: Docs: Get Better Outcomes with New Foot Levelers Single-Foot Kiosk

    ROANOKE, VA—September 18, 2017Celebrating 65 years of serving Chiropractic, Foot Levelers has introduced its latest advancement, the single-foot Kiosk. This revolutionary scanning device is designed to help healthcare providers save time, ensure all patients are scanned for orthotics, and increase referrals to their practice.

    Patients Scan Themselves, Orthotic Usage Increases: Statistics prove that the Foot Levelers Kiosk helps doctors increase the number of patients they fit for custom orthotics, which leads to better patient results. Ideal for placement in a practice’s reception area, the Kiosk allows patients to scan themselves, before the doctor’s exam even begins. This saves staff time, allowing them to spend more time reviewing the comprehensive Report of Findings with each patient.

    Shareable Report of Findings, Increase Referrals: The Foot Levelers single-foot Kiosk offers two Reports of Findings. The most comprehensive is the doctor’s version, which should be reviewed with every patient.

    But new to the Kiosk software is a Report of Findings that is emailed to each patient, before they even step off the scanner. This new report is shareable on several social media platforms. When the report is shared with friends and family, referrals to the practice increase.

    Invitation to Foot Levelers Practice Xcelerator: With each single-foot Kiosk comes an invitation to one of Foot Levelers’ FREE Practice Xcelerator events. The Practice Xcelerator is an extensive, half-day training session that focuses on improving outcomes through increased orthotic usage. 

    The new, single-foot scanning Kiosk is part of an ongoing story of growth for the 65-year-old company. Started as a small, family business in Dubuque, Iowa in 1952, today Foot Levelers serves thousands of providers and millions of patients in over 85 countries. In 2014, Foot Levelers opened an office in Sydney, Australia, followed by a second in Belgrade, Serbia in 2016. Foot Levelers has long been the leader in orthotics for Chiropractic patients, with an expanding presence in Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Family Medicine, Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture, among other health disciplines.

    In September, the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation published a watershed study proving that Foot Levelers custom orthotics, 

    particularly in conjunction with Chiropractic care, significantly reduce Low Back Pain (LBP)—by 40.4 percent. This study is critically important because the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports 80 percent of adults experience LBP. LBP is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, with many patients taking dangerous opioids for relief. “Foot Levelers and Chiropractic can make a difference in the opioid crisis,” says Kent S. Greenawalt, Foot Levelers CEO.
