Orthotics and Chiropractic Care for Happy Feet
By Donna Stark
When you think of your chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic, you probably don't think too much about your feet. After all, chiropractors are supposed to be spine experts, not toe experts! But did you know that the health of your spine, back, hips, knees, and even your neck is connected to the health of your feet? That's right! And that is why you need to treat your feet to some extra, loving care. Without good support and proper alignment in the body, you could be looking at a lot of pain in your future.
Treating Your Feet Well
Soaking your feet in hot, soapy water or painting your nails is one way to shower your feet with love, but if you really want to make a difference, take a look at your shoes and their lack of orthotics. Orthotics are shoe inserts that are specifically designed to correct abnormal foot posture and gait patterns and they can make all the difference in the world.
How Do Orthotics Help?
By accommodating the shape and supporting every curve of your foot, orthotics can help alter the way your feet strike the ground. This is important because your feet and ankles can then start working from a more neutral position. What does that do? Well, it reverses the domino effect going on in your body. If your feet are in proper alignment, then your knees, hips, spine, and neck can be in proper alignment too! And you can start feeling less pain with each passing day.
What Does This Have to Do With Chiropractic Care?
Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help treat the pain issues throughout your body with the help of orthotics. They can also assist with any questions you may have concerning the benefit of orthotics and chiropractic care.
