Pronation

Pronation

When a foot is severely “pronated,” it means its arches have fallen and the foot is flat. Flat feetare less shock-absorbent, and make for a less stable “base” for everything above—the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the entire body. read more »

Hip pain

Hip Pain

In most cases, treating your hip is more likely to be successful when the focus is on restoring balanced function in the entire body—starting from the ground up—rather than simply reducing the pain and inflammation in the irritated tissues. read more »

Knee pain

Knee Pain

Having knee pain? Treating your knee is more likely to be successful when the focus is on restoring balanced function in the entire body—starting from the ground up—rather than simply reducing the pain and inflammation in the irritated tissues. read more »

Sciatica

Sciatica

Sciatica pain is a symptom of an underlying condition; not a diagnosis in and of itself. A number of common lower back problems can cause sciatica. read more »

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendonitis is most commonly found in individuals aged 30-40, with 90% of these cases occurring during sport/exercise. It’s most frequently brought on by excessive physical training (in particular running or lunging) or by wearing inappropriate footwear while training. read more »

Drop Foot

Drop Foot

Drop foot (or foot drop)is a general term in which the lifting of the forefoot (front part of the foot) is difficult.

Leg Length Inequality

Leg Length Inequality

Leg length inequality, or short leg, may affect as many as 60 to 90 percent of the population. Categorized as either functional or structural, both have profound effects on the body's biomechanics and may result in back pain, the most common symptom. read more »

Runners Knee

Runners Knee

One of the most recognized and common running injuries is runner’s knee. But in fact, runner’s knee is not an injury in of itself. It’s a generally broad description of knee pain caused by other knee injuries, including iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), and/or chondromalacia patella. read more »

Heel Spurs

Heel Spurs

Do you have a sharp pain in your heel when you get out of bed in the morning? When you take a step, does it feel like someone is jabbing a knife in your heel? If so, you might have a heel spur. read more »

Your feet don’t have to hurt to be causing problems in other areas of your body. “Asymptomatic” (symptom-free) feet do NOT equal problem-free feet. Mis-positioned joints may not be painful, but they can cause biomechanical issues, neurological deficits and other problems throughout the body. Foot Levelers custom orthotics, Shoethotics® and Sandalthotics® can help by properly supporting and positioning the feet—and we’ve got the research to prove it.

If you suffer from any of the following, consider custom orthotics and chiropractic first! Click here to request a Foot Levelers healthcare provider near you, or select one of the conditions above to discover how Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics can help ease your pain.

And if your feet do hurt, we can help that, too. In “No Surgery: Fresh Cures for Common Foot Pain” by The Wall Street Journal Health’s Angela Chen, the writer speaks with experts who say that most foot problems—from bunions to plantar fasciitis to hammertoes to ball-of-foot pain—can be treated successfully without surgery. “Some treatments, such as insoles that redistribute the pressure on the foot . . . aim to address the cause of the foot problems, which can help them from recurring,” writes Chen. (Hey! That’s what we’ve been saying all along!)

The Neurology of Posture

Dr. Dennis Buckley

Tue, Nov 24, 2020 @ 1PM EST

Each day in our practices we see people present with an array of problems and they present a certain posture. This is a reflection of one’s neurology and if you understand the posture and the neurology you can treat the patients successfully with a brain based approach to not only help with the presenting symptoms but correct the cause. The attendees will be able to take information from this presentation and apply them the next day in their practice taking a fresh look at posture and how it affects the neurology and function. Doing this will help create improved patient outcomes and identify simple but often overlooked signs and presentations that are causing decreased function.

Everyone Is Crooked Man

Dr. Tim Maggs

Thu, Dec 17, 2020 @ 2PM EST

Every human has imbalances and fixations in their biomechanical structure. These are the precursors to injury and accelerated degeneration. No profession is trained in biomechanics like the chiropractic profession, but we need to focus on the examination as much as we focus on the treatment. Unique biomechanical faults require unique recommendations.
