At Hillsdale Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Center, we can provide you with custom made orthotics that fit your feet only. We perform a digital foot scan which shows varying degrees of instability in your feet. The scan gives us a thorough clinical insight into levels of asymmetry throughout your feet and body. We can provide you with a detailed report from your scan and discuss what the report means for you. If we find imbalances or problems in your pedal foundation, we may recommend Foot Levelers custom made orthotics.
You might be wondering if custom made orthotics are worth it. “Can’t I just go to the store and buy the cheaper pair of orthotics?” Yes, you can go to the store and buy the cheaper pair of orthotics, along with the glasses that aren’t your prescription, or the over-the-counter medication that only masks your symptoms. This difference in our functional orthotics is focused on your overall health. They offer more than just short-term symptom relief. Functional orthotics help support whole-body wellness for a lifetime of the orthotic.
Your feet may feel just fine, but they may be causing trouble elsewhere in your body. Foot imbalance or dysfunction can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the legs, knees, hips, spine, shoulder, even the neck. If your feet do hurt, your body could be sending out a distress signal that it’s time to get help. As a Chiropractor, Dr. Arnot is highly trained in addressing foot problems including plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, bunions and more.
Keep in mind the average American takes 5,117 steps per day. With each step, degenerative changes in the muscles, joints and connective tissues of the feet are reinforced. With the body’s foundation compromised, joint movement, circulation and biomechanical functioning throughout the entire body may suffer.
Consider getting your complimentary foot scan to see if you are in need of our custom-made orthotics.
