Custom Orthotics

What are custom foot orthotics?

Foot orthotics are shoe inserts that can be used to treat foot, ankle, knee, hip, and even back pain. Custom foot orthotics are corrective devices, resembling insoles that slip inside shoes to counterbalance forces exerted on the skeletal structure by both muscles and gravity.
Orthotics reduces pain and discomfort by improving proper weight distribution.

Who needs a custom orthotic?

You are probably familiar with the shoe inserts that you can buy at the store.  These are often beneficial for certain conditions or the “average” person.  In many cases a custom orthotic is much more effective because they are designed specifically to meet your individual needs.  It is also important that you get the right custom orthotic for you.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into the skin at precise points known as acupuncture points.

Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins in the brain and spinal cord. Endorphins are actually chemicals produced within our own bodies and are almost identical to morphine. These chemicals mimic morphine by attaching to opiate receptor sites found throughout the nervous system.

Endorphins help to block pain pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain, resulting in relief of pain, general relaxation and biochemical restoration of the body’s own internal regulation systems.

An office visit will last from 15 to 30 minutes.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of your joints, muscles and nerves through the use of an adjustment. A spinal adjustment can restore normal movement, relieve pain and stimulate higher function of your brain and nervous system resulting in a renewed sense of vitality. Chiropractors practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.
