Your feet are your foundation
Our feet were originally designed to walk on soft natural surfaces like earth and sand. Most of us now spend our day on hard surfaces, forcing our feet to compensate by flattening out and twisting. This can result in a chain reaction called the “closed kinetic chain” in which our ankles, knees, hips and low back are affected creating modern pain syndromes, disrupting normal knee function and hip alignment.
So, how can we address this biomechanical disadvantage in your feet? In combination with a conservative course of chiropractic treatment, orthotics are usually successful in alleviating chronic pain. An orthotic will hold the most important ankle joint in a neutral position throughout the day taking the stress off of your knee and hip joint and allowing the muscles of your low back to adopt a more normal movement pattern. We now carry a line of heat moldable custom orthotics at Attune Chiropractic. Stop in or contact me any time to learn more!
