For better health, work from the ground up—start by taking great care of your feet!
At King Chiropractic, we see many people each day who are suffering from hip, knee, and back pain. Often these people have troubles because of subluxations, which are misalignments of the spine. Chiropractic care addresses these subluxations and helps get the spine back into alignment, relieving pain and helping improve athletic performance.
It’s best to work with the body to prevent further occurrences of trouble. Often, targeted exercises can stretch and strengthen needed muscles. For instance, strengthening stomach muscles can help with recurring back pain. And regular chiropractic adjustments can make a big difference and keep discomfort, when it happens, to a minimum.
Overpronation in the Feet Causes Trouble All Over
Many misalignments can be due to overpronation in the feet.
When we overpronate, the arches of the feet drop and the foot rolls inward. There is a tendency to push off from the big and second toe rather than spreading impact evenly throughout the foot. The rest of the body tries to compensate for this imbalance, putting extra stress on joints and the spine.
OTHER FACTORS THAT MAY CONTRIBUTE TO OVERPRONATION INCLUDE:
- Weight increase
At Ground Level: Custom Orthotics
A custom orthotic in your shoes can greatly increase the effectiveness of these preventive measures.
Even though chiropractic adjustments ease misalignments, continued overpronation will cause the symptoms again and again. A custom orthotic corrects imbalances in the foot. By supporting the arch of the foot, these foundations reduce pressure and shift impact so it’s spread out across your foot as it’s meant to be.
Orthotics cushion the foot to absorb shock, too. And because your body isn’t compensating for discomfort and pressure, the source of your hip, knee, and back pain may be alleviated.
Dr. King uses Sole Supports Custom Orthotics
Generic, store-bought orthotics don’t support your entire foot. They aren’t tailored to the specific complex issues of your own foot. At King Chiropractic, Dr. King uses Sole Support Custom Orthotics to address the biomechanics of your individual feet.
Our custom orthotics by Sole Supports establish the proper alignment of your foot. By taking a custom mold of your foot and properly fitting the orthotic, King Chiropractic creates a supportive, shock-absorbing structure that can make a big difference in foot alignment. That can prevent misalignments and pain throughout your body.
If you’re having pain in your spine, knees, or hips, call King Chiropractic at (910) 777-7228 today. We can evaluate your problems and suggest preventive measures such as exercise and, if needed, custom orthotics. And we can help relieve any pain you may be having now and set you on the road to recovery.
