Foot Levelers Orthotics
What are Stabilizing Orthotics?
Stabilizing Orthotics were made by a chiropractor to treat the body as a functional unit and give you the support you need. They support the 26 bones and over 100 muscles in each of your feet to protect your foundation. You can maintain your feet's 3-arched structure, the plantar vault, to balance the entire body with our orthotics.
Your 3-arched structure optimizes your body by: giving strength to support the weight of the entire body; permitting sufficient flexibility to accommodate changes in terrain; and providing momentum for movement.
Why Foot Levelers Orthotics?
Stabilizing Orthotics offer support for your entire body, compared to most orthotic companies that only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported, the problem shifts to another part of your body. Stabilizing Orthotics support the three interconnected arches of your foot, also known as the plantar vault. The structural support for the entire body's equilibrium is gained from your feet's plantar vault.
Would you wear eyeglasses that weren't prescribed for you? Or take an over-the-counter drug for a problem that requires a prescription drug? Of course not! You take care of your health and do what is right for your overall well-being. Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Stabilizing Orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems--not just problems with your feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can properly align your spine and pelvis.
Our Stabilizing Orthotics offer more than just short-term symptom relief. They also promote whole-body wellness for your life. We can improve your overall health by supporting your foundation. The feet are the foundation of the body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. Feet also help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from stress as you move. By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body's performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. Our orthotics complement your healthcare professional's treatment when you stand, walk, and live your life in balance.
How do we specialize your Stabilizing Orthotics?
First, we perform a body assessment. A body assessment image, as shown above, reveals how imbalances in the feet can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt and shoulder drop. These imbalances in the body can be caused by pronation and supination of the foot. These instabilities can lead to conditions such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and neck pain.
A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. Wearing Stabilizing Orthotics may help alleviate imbalances and conditions caused by those imbalances.
Most people think their foot only has one arch, when there are actually three:
Inner Medial longitudinal arch (A–C)
Outer Lateral longitudinal arch (B–C)
Across the balls of feet Anterior transverse [metatarsal] arch (A–B)
Stabilizing Orthotics - The Solution for You
If you are considering individually designed Stabilizing Orthotics, Dr. Langille can perform a foot scan to show you the imbalances in your feet and show you how Stabilizing Orthotics may help. Following a foot scan, Dr. Langille will give you a report that will provide you a Pronation/Stability Index, a Foot Assessment, and a Body Assessment.
Even if your feet don't hurt, they may be contributing to overall postural imbalance. If pain or discomfort occurs in a specific area of the body, from your neck down to your feet, individually designed orthotics may help bring long-term relief.
