Foot Levelers orthotics stabilize and balance your feet. This may result in your body having higher mobility, efficiency, reduced pain and overall wellness. Your feet are the foundation of your body and support you when you stand, walk, run, ice skate, ski and much more. The way your body is balanced on your feet can affect your spine, bones and muscles. When you are not properly balanced, one shoulder may slump, your pelvis and hips tilt, knees have too much pressure and the arch in your foot drops.
Pronation describes feet that roll inwards. The weight is placed on the inside of the foot. If this is long-term, it may cause the knee to rotate and the pelvis to tilt forward. Pronation can be mild or severe. Some of the injuries prolonged pronation can cause are plantar fasciitis, bunions and shin splints. Foot Levelers orthotics help relieve the pain.
Lower back pain is one of the most common symptoms of an unbalanced foundation. The joints and muscles are not in proper alignment, so they do not function properly. This can result in nerve root syndromes such as herniated discs, inflammation and spinal degeneration.
Sports injuries are often found in people who participate in intense sports. Having a balanced foundation may help reduce injuries such as dysfunction of joints, muscles and ligaments. Sprains are a common injury, which are stretched or torn ligaments.
Having legs of slightly different lengths is also a common physical condition. It mainly has structural causes or functional causes. Structural difference may be caused by an injury, growth defect or surgery. Functional causes may be the result of the knee, hip, or feet not functioning properly. These are often caused by altered mechanics because of an unbalanced foundation.
Shin Splints, or pain in the front of the lower leg, usually signal improper support of the body. We have several orthotic solutions for different intensity of shin splints.
There is Foot Levelers orthotics for every type of lifestyle. The most popular model is for all lifestyles and offers extreme durability, increased shock absorption, temperature control, extra cushioning and odor control.
For people who are on their feet most of the day, there is orthotics with an extra layer of cushion for extreme comfort. There is also special orthotics for very active people such sportspeople, runners and cyclists that combine durability with moisture control. There is even orthotics for women who wear high heels.
To get custom-designed orthotics, a foot scan is needed. It will reveal your imbalances that can lead to problems in your hips, back, shoulders and knees. The scan will show where your feet are applying pressure and if you have severe pronation. Each foot may have a different percentage of imbalances. The scan also assesses how your knees are rotated, your pelvis is tilted and your shoulder drops. If your body is properly aligned, you will have symmetrical feet, and level shoulders, pelvis and knees.
People who have problems with joints in their legs, back, neck and shoulders may not realize that the source of the problem is in their feet. They can get relief from the pain with Foot Levelers orthotics.
