Our feet support us all day and make it possible to perform essential actions like standing, walking, climbing stairs and driving. Unfortunately, poor foot health is common – 75 percent of people will experience foot problems in their lifetime! Yet did you know that other issues like low back, sciatica, hip or knee pain can also be linked to your feet?

Foot issues can make leading an active lifestyle painful, if not impossible. Neglecting our feet can negatively affect the whole body – including the spine. Our body parts form a sequence known as the “kinetic chain”. When the feet provide an unstable foundation, it can cause problems throughout the body, even up to the neck.

For those suffering from foot pain and related issues, the Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury is proud to introduce the Foot Levelers Kiosk! Our patients can take advantage of this great technology to identify problems and support the foot-spine connection. The Foot Levelers Kiosk also offers guidance on selecting custom orthotics for each patient’s specific condition and lifestyle!

How the Kiosk Works

When you step onto the Foot Levelers Kiosk, it can highlight imbalances and asymmetries between the feet, as well as posture imperfections. Whether or not you’re experiencing pain, it can also identify biomechanical issues, neurological deficits and other problems throughout the body. The cutting-edge technology:

  • Scans your foot
  • Stores the data
  • Offers patient education
  • Recommends appropriate custom orthotics

The Foot Levelers laboratory receives your scanned foot details and cloud-based software allows your chiropractor to also access the data!

Foot-Spine Connection

Our feet are the foundation of the body’s kinetic chain. As such, pain or loss of function in the knees could lead discomfort along the kinetic chain, including the hip and spine.

Specifically looking at posture, low arches or excessive pronation of the feet can rotate the knees. This joint misalignment can affect your stance, stability and movement, which may also contribute to back pain. When feet are stabilized and balanced, the rest of the kinetic chain can function pain-free!

Benefits of Custom Orthotics

If your foot problems are causing pain throughout the body, custom orthotics can provide relief while restoring balance and alignment. These prescription medical devices are worn inside the shoes to correct biomechanical issues. As you walk, they offer more support and better weight distribution.

Maintaining foot health and alignment can also counteract hip, knee or spinal joint degeneration and help prevent future arch collapse. When the musculoskeletal system is balanced, you can lead a healthier life!
 
Custom orthotics can reduce pain while helping to improve your gait, stance, posture and balance. To learn more about the Foot Levelers Kiosk at The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury, contact us today!

"Dr Francesco and the staff are outstanding. I am so glad I found out about this chiropractic practice and am forever grateful for how much better I am feeling since getting treatments there."
Jody Lefkowitz
"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"
Candace Lozowski
"I started going to Dr. D when my orthopedic doctor recommended him for whiplash. I had always been skeptical of chiro services, but Dr. D and his associates are wonderful. They've kept me pain free for years now, as I have monthly adjustments to ensure good health now and in the future. I highly recommend Dr. D."

"My whole family goes to Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury. My other half has been getting adjustments for years and he has been the driving force for the family to get checked out. He says since he has been coming here, if his back has any issues or is out, it seems to get better much faster than ever before. If you've had any problems with your back, you'll know that speaks volumes. We trust this group!"

"I strained my lower back a month prior to an Ironman race. I was unable to sleep, walk or sit, never mind continue training as planned. The entire office staff is beyond kind, caring, professional and runs extremely smooth. I was explained every step and procedure, along with a patient education class that really helped me understand what was wrong with my back and steps to fix it. Dr Wade was able to get me sleeping, walking and able to compete in my triathlon. 5 stars for many reasons and would highly recommend."

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."
