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

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

Athletes and Hip Injury Prevention

The competitive and the recreational athlete can each be affected by injuries to the muscles and ligaments around the hip.  These injuries can significantly interfere with sports enjoyment and performance levels, and they occasionally will end participation completely.  Poor shock absorption and excessive pronation have been found to be underlying causes or contributing factors for many leg/hip injuries. (1)  Orthotics, which have been custom made to improve the biomechanics of the feet and reduce the extent of pronation, can help to prevent many sport-related leg injuries. read more

Give Hip Pain the Boot

Got hip pain?

Foot Levelers custom-made stabilizing orthotics may be able to help.

The hip joint is the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint, allowing for fluid movement during running, walking, and more. As the hip bone moves around in its socket, a cushion of cartilage helps prevent friction.

But with age and use, this cartilage can wear down or sustain damage. So can the muscles, tendons, and bones in and surrounding the hip.  Hip pain is usually a symptom of an underlying condition, including Arthritis, Avascular necrosis (or osteonecrosis), certain cancers, Bursitis, fracture, labral tear, muscle or tendon strain, and tendinitis. It’s important to work with your healthcare provider to determine the source of your pain. read more
