Runners Knee

Runners Knee

One of the most recognized and common running injuries is runner’s knee. But in fact, runner’s knee is not an injury in of itself.

Heel Spurs

Heel Spurs

Do you have a sharp pain in your heel when you get out of bed in the morning? When you take a step, does it feel like someone is jabbing a knife in your heel? If so, you might have a heel spur. read more »

Your feet don’t have to hurt to be causing problems in other areas of your body. “Asymptomatic” (symptom-free) feet do NOT equal problem-free feet. Mis-positioned joints may not be painful, but they can cause biomechanical issues, neurological deficits and other problems throughout the body. Foot Levelers custom orthotics, Shoethotics® and Sandalthotics® can help by properly supporting and positioning the feet—and we’ve got the research to prove it.

If you suffer from any of the following, consider custom orthotics and chiropractic first! Click here to request a Foot Levelers healthcare provider near you, or select one of the conditions above to discover how Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics can help ease your pain.

And if your feet do hurt, we can help that, too. In “No Surgery: Fresh Cures for Common Foot Pain” by The Wall Street Journal Health’s Angela Chen, the writer speaks with experts who say that most foot problems—from bunions to plantar fasciitis to hammertoes to ball-of-foot pain—can be treated successfully without surgery. “Some treatments, such as insoles that redistribute the pressure on the foot . . . aim to address the cause of the foot problems, which can help them from recurring,” writes Chen. (Hey! That’s what we’ve been saying all along!)

(OTL) Post Pandemic Practice

Dr. Brian Jensen

Tue, Jul 7, 2020 @ 2PM EST

The world as we knew it got turned upside down with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. We discovered very quickly how many things are out of our control. Every aspect of our lives has been touched by the pandemic. Areas of weakness are quickly revealed in times like these. Unfortunately for many, the ramifications of the virus will result illness and for some, death. Fortunately, a vast majority that contract the virus will recover completely. The health challenges that predispose people to illness and infection have been identified and now we have an opportunity to learn great lessons from this tragic chapter in history. The question is this, what areas of your health could use improving? What are your weak points? In this webinar, I will look at some of foundational components that contribute to health and healthy aging. We will look at biomechanical function and how it affects gait, movement and posture. Chronic inflammation and toxicity are major contributors to illness and disease and are influenced by how our nervous system deals with stress. All of these areas can easily be identified and quantified with our exam findings. Once we know where we want to go, a path can be laid out for the patient.

(OTL) Why Do You Adjust

Dr. Jeffrey McKinley

Thu, Jul 16, 2020 @ 2PM EST

The cornerstone of Chiropractic is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) or the spinal adjustment. Just as each Chiropractic Physician has their unique way of delivering the adjustment, unique also is the reason and rational for doing so. In this webinar we ask the question “Why Do You Adjust?” We will review some biomechanical evidence available from x-rays and foot scans, and will look at recent research surrounding the neurological effects of spinal manipulation. What occurs in the brain when we adjust the spine?

(OTL) Coordinating and Implementing Integrative Care

Dr. Dennis Buckley

Tue, Jul 21, 2020 @ 1PM EST

In today’s health care environment, many patients are consulting with chiropractors as doctors of first contact and their needs may fall outside of the scope of the chiropractor. Knowing how to communicate and coordinate care with other providers with different licenses is essential to ensure best outcomes. Many DC’s now work in offices that house different provider licenses and knowing the hierarchy of licenses and what type of care you can recommend or how you request evaluations of patients is essential for effectiveness and legal reasons. (i.e. a chiropractor can’t recommend a certain surgery but can refer to a surgeon for an evaluation to see what care is needed.) This course will teach the DC how to function ethically and legally in a coordinated care environment to obtain better outcome for patients.
