Feet are the foundation of our mechanical framework. They determine the manner in which forces are absorbed through the rest of the joints above. Whether it is walking, running, jumping, or simply standing, our joints absorb the weight of the body against gravity. If there is any dysfunction in the foot work, problems may arise in the ankle, knee, hip, or low back. Custom orthotic shoe inserts help to correct the improper mechanics in the feet along with the chiropractic adjustment and corrective exercises. After analyzing your walk Dr. Steinys may find it necessary to fit you for orthotics.
