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. It’s a generally broad description of knee pain caused by other knee injuries, including iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), and/or chondromalacia patella. read more »

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!)
