Joint Replacement

Joint replacement surgeries are being widely marketed to your patients and they are a big business. The use of Foot Levelers custom orthotics can help alleviate symptoms in patients with joint paint and biomechanical deficiencies, while also reducing the potential for future injury.

The Over Pronated Foot

When a foot is severely pronated, or flat, it means its arches have fallen. Flat feet are less shock-absorbent, and make for a less stable “base” for everything above—the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the entire body. They can cause serious issues throughout the kinetic chain.

Most chronic low back pain is the result of some form of structural weakness or failure.1 If leg or foot asymmetries or misalignments exist, abnormal forces can interfere with spinal function2 and contribute to health concerns all along the Kinetic Chain—especially the generalized condition of “back pain.”

The Foot/Spine Connection

Excessive stresses on the spine can be the result of abnormal foot biomechanics, poor function of the foot/ ankle complex, excessive shock transmission, or leg length asymmetry. Recognizing and then responding appropriately to these factors separate the Doctors of Chiropractic from the spinal technicians.
