Chiropractic Treatment for Foot Pain
Foot orthotics - Shoe inserts that are custom-made to alleviate pain
Functional Orthotics- orthotics that change kinetic working of the body
from the foot all the way to the base of the skull with long-lasting,
positive effects resulting in a partial or full reversal of chronic
Accomodative orthotics - orthotics which accomodate the problem but
never change the dynamics of the "cause" of the problem resulting
in a possible quick fix but a continuing decline in function.
What would you rather have? If your doctor has not corrected the 52
bones in your feet (that determine how you use your muscles up to the
base of your skull), before they take a mirror image to make your orthotic,
then you are in an accommodative orthotic. It's like being cast in a
pathological position which supports your "weakness" as opposed
to "changing" the weakness. If you are wearing one of the
"hard plastic" designs, then a portion of your foot will be
disabled in its function as several bones are now locked and limited
in their motion.
orthotics are not created equal and neither are the results. If you're
trusting your New Balance or Nike to do the work for you, understand
that even the best of shoes are inconsistent these days in their orthopedic
workmanship and benefits. Learning how to pick a shoe model that best
fits your orthopedic strengths and weakness can do much to reduce injury
and keep longevity in your game.
educating the patient on this information and making an orthotic that
actually addresses the cause of the foot, knee, hip or low back dysfunction,
the results are so consistent with improvement for the patient that
I actually guarantee them.
