Custom Orthotics

It’s a fact — your feet are the foundation for your entire body. When they are level and balanced, your whole body has an easier time staying in balance. Correcting any alignment problems with the way your feet support your body and stabilizing the three arches in your feet can prevent or resolve a multitude of nagging, painful problems.

Here are just some of the types of painful problems that can be traced to unbalanced feet:

Low back pain

Neck pain

Knee pain

Hip pain

Plantar fasciitis

Foot drop

And of course, foot and ankle pain!

Achilles tendon problems

Shoulder pain



What Is an Orthotic and How Does it Work?

An orthotic is a device for supporting a body part that may be weak or in need of correction. When Dr. Dusty finds that one of his patients needs correction of the alignment of their feet, he prescribes custom-made orthotics from Foot Levelers. For many years, Foot Levelers has been working with chiropractors around the world to provide custom orthotics that straighten out a patient’s alignment and relieve pain.

An orthotic fits into a shoe to support the arches of your foot and provide a more ideal foundation. When your foot meets the ground at the right angle and has the right support, the alignment of your whole body is improved. This can relieve pressure all the way up, from the ankles and knees to the top of your head.

Imbalances in your feet can cause pain and have a direct effect on your knees, hips, back, and neck.

Stabilizing orthotics help relieve pain and provide a balanced foundation to improve your overall health

The Difference Between Off-the-Shelf Orthotics and Foot Levelers

You may have placed off-the-shelf orthotics in shoes at one time in an attempt to alleviate pain or stress in your feet. Maybe they even helped a little. But there is nothing to compare to an orthotic that is made especially for you, based on exact specifications and measurements provided by an expert like Dr. Dusty.

For a person who is in pain or spends many hours on their feet, Foot Leveler orthotics are so often a blessing. There are now models of Foot Levelers suitable for high-heeled shoes, flats, business shoes or work boots. There are even custom orthotic flip-flops for both men and women.

For some patients, a custom orthotic is the perfect solution to improve recovery from pain or injury and improve their overall well-being. As one of the best chiropractors in St. Louis, Dr. Dusty is pleased to offer this service to his patients and his community.
