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
And of course, foot and ankle pain!
Achilles tendon problems
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. If you have any question about the improvement available to you from custom orthotics, please call Mattingly Chiropractic at 314-635-1008 today.
The Pain Was Totally Gone After the Adjustment
“Dr. Mattingly is the best chiropractor I have ever been to in my life. I have a history of lower back pain, neck pain and a general weakness of the muscles in my back.
“The other day, I was sleeping in a chair for half an hour. When I tried to get up, I couldn’t. The pain in my lower back was electrifying. I nearly collapsed in pain. The next day, as soon as I could get there, Dr. Mattingly gave me the best adjustment ever. I knew beforehand he could fix it. And he did. The pain was totally gone after the adjustment.
“I ‘bow down’ to you, Dr. Mattingly, because you deserve it, and because I can!”
“I woke up one night at 2 a.m. in severe pain; I could barely walk. I went to Dr. Mattingly and he worked on me and I got instant relief. I was able to walk normally by the end of the day. I now go to him weekly and have had excellent results. He has me on nutritional supplements that have helped me greatly. He has enhanced my quality of life in so many ways. I truly enjoy the service and results I have and will obtain. I’ve had chiropractic care before Dr. Mattingly is the best. Thanks Dr. Mattingly and staff!”
“For over 10 years I have lived with low back pain. I was in a car accident where my leg was broken. After getting out of the cast and when I was up and about, I went back to work doing hardwood floors and wood trim. I was bent over and on my knees a lot and the pain was about all I could bear at best. Some days I would sit stretching my leg trying to relieve some of the pain.”
“Luckily I came into Dr. Mattingly’s office, and in a few short weeks he has rid me of most of my pain. His knowledge and ability to get fast results allow me to be more productive at work and more alive when I get home to my kids. I get to roll around with them now rather than being worried about throwing out my back or having to withstand the pain of my back in order to enjoy their excitement.”
