Even though all your body parts are connected and affect one another, your feet are the "foundation". Your entire body is supported and balanced by your feet. Therefore, if your feet are pronated (as 99% of all people's feet are), your body will suffer – starting with either the knee, hip, or back.
When something goes wrong with one of our parts and we experience pain, traditional medical doctors attempt to treat patients using prescriptions or surgery. This, in our opinion, is a very narrow view of solutions and care. When we meet with a patient, we observe data through 3D Scans and X-rays, pinpoint the root cause of the problem, and apply treatment.
Even though treatment may involve chiropractic or physical therapy, it usually begins with Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics. Why? Because our feet are the "foundation" of the body and choose Foot Levelers because has a tremendous reputation for making the best custom orthotics on the planet.
Since 99% of all people have foot pronation (often causing imbalances and stresses in the knees, which in turn puts stress on the hip, back, and even our neck), custom orthotics are a vital solution to whole body health. This is the bio kinetic chain in action. When our feet are stabilized and in balance, the rest of the kinetic chain will function as it should – pain free! But when our feet are pronated and de-stabilized, the rest of the kinetic chain will be negatively impacted – typically resulting in pain and loss of function.
While over-the-counter shoe inserts are available at most drugstores, they lack the custom-built precision of a prescription orthotic. These ‘one-size-fits-all’ inserts rarely match your feet well, or provide the customized support you need.
Dr. Yadira Santiago can prescribed custom orthotics, and last well over a year in most cases. We use a computarized program with Foot Levelers that scan your feet and body and customize your orthotics depending of your needs.
