Those are some flat feet!

IMGP0055

When new patients come into our office for care there are a lot of factors that go into what’s the next most important thing to address: few actually arrive in our office wanting to talk about their foot troubles.

But, alas, the foot bone is connected to the leg bone. The leg bone is connected to the pelvis, and so on.

Depending on how a patient has and is spending their time it may take years or it may take decades. But flat feet often become and issue; usually it’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when.

For more than a dozen years I have been able to help with a detailed evaluation of the feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis and spinal joints, followed by corrections to whatever joint restrictions I find and a pair of Custom Orthotic inserts.

Relief is usually immediate, and these inserts last for many years. With the current epidemic of heavy folks, the feet are taking a beating. Almost everyone can now say “plantar fascitis”.

The other day a twenty-something was in to be checked because he had slept on strange beds and hauled a drum set all over the country for several weeks, so he had neck and back pain. I noticed that he was wearing a set of Orthotics that I had made him last year (his second set). He said that he loved them and that they were working out really well for him.

It’s nice to contemplate all the problems that he will not have because he does have those inserts. And it’s nice to know that he can easily go many months between chiropractic visits because he holds his adjustments, partly, because he has those inserts.

That’s the way it’s supposed to work:-)
