Did you know an important part of your spinal health is your feet? Maintaining great posture and support of the spine, back, and neck all stems from the way we treat our feet. As chiropractors, we are known as doctors that specialize in the spine. But we also work with your feet! Think about it: you sit, stand, walk, and move all day long. Here’s what you need to know about chiropractic care and your feet.
How Is Your Footwear?
Maybe your shoes don’t always fit quite right or you choose footwear that is particularly harsh (like high heels). Is it really a wonder that your back would be in pain? When you don’t wear shoes that fit as they should or your feet aren’t in proper alignment, you bodies are put through much more strain than is necessary. For many, a simple chiropractic adjustment will do the trick. But for others, a little more help is needed. As you know, chiropractic care is often done in conjunction with other treatments. That’s where orthotics step into the scene.
Orthotics for Improvement
Orthotics are inserts that are placed in the shoes to restore natural foot movement. This aids in restoring the natural movement of the foot to help with extremity pain and posture. Orthotics are designed to correct irregular or abnormal walking patterns and foot posture. Unlike the typical shoe cushioners or arch supporters you find at the local pharmacy, orthotics help those that use them move more efficiently, making everyday activities more comfortable by altering the angle at which the feet make contact with the ground.
