How do orthotics improve spinal function?
Our Chiropractor from StayWell Chiropractic in Novi, MI Further Explains

anatomy of the feetYour feet may not hurt, but they may be hurting your back! The joints and muscles of your body function most efficiently when they are in physical balance. The body is a bio mechanical chain where abnormal movement of one joint can interfere with the proper movement of other joints. Your feet are your body's foundation and if they are not properly supported, abnormal bio mechanical and postural distortions could develop that place excessive stress on your spine and joints as shown above. These abnormal forces must be reduced and stabilized before long-term, improved spinal function can be achieved. Stabilizing orthotics help correct these distortions and help you develop the strength and flexibility you need to keep your body stable as you stand, walk or run.

Why Custom Orthotics?

custom orthotics worn by someone in Novi, MIOnly Foot Levelers functional orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the plantar vault. They’re custom-made by hand based on your unique feet, body and health profile. Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs of Foot Levelers custom orthotics are alike.

Over-the-counter orthotics may initially cost less, but they only support one arch in your foot. When only one arch is being supported, it may not maintain the structure of your plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body. In fact, “over-supporting” just one arch of the foot may actually cause pain and symptoms, not relieve them.

Do you experience pain daily? Over-the-counter inserts may not provide the relief you need. Individually designed, Foot Levelers custom orthotics with 3-arch support, however, can.

Whether you’re visiting us for pain, preventive care or to improve your athletic performance, Foot Levelers’ custom-made functional orthotics can help. Why Foot Levelers?

  • Over 6 decades of proven performance
  • Backed by 37 clinical research studies, more than any other orthotic company in the world
  • Used by Chiropractic colleges throughout the world
  • 100,000+ doctors and millions of patients can speak to the results
  • 100% satisfaction guaranteed, period

Why custom? Generic, off-the-shelf inserts risk worsening your symptoms because they address only general conditions, and with questionable results. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints. Only Foot Levelers custom-made orthotics are built specifically to meet your individual feet, body and health needs.

Over-the-Counter Inserts

Only generic "solutions"; don't address your unique feet, body or health needs
No specific corrections available; incapable of addressing left–right foot imbalance or over-pronation
Support only one arch and often overcorrect it, causing more harm than good
Durability is questionable; materials wear out quickly

The real cost: can aggravate your symptoms and may even cause new problems throughout the body
