Footlevelers Custom Orthotics

Proper balance is extremely important, from the feet up. If a person has a deficit in the way they walk, or stand, it can greatly affect their ankles, knees, feet, hips, low back, shoulders and neck. One of the things that Dr. Andrea does is to check your posture. Dr. Andrea is looking to see if any extra stabilization such as orthotics can help the patient recover faster. Orthotics can also help patients maintain their adjustments longer.

The longer you maintain your adjustments, the less care you need in the office. For example, if a person walks with their toes flared out, and their feet rolled in, instead of pointing straight ahead where they are going, it will cause the knees to roll in and the hips to follow. Causing the knees and hips to adapt will cause the lumbar spine to compensate. When the lumbar spine compensates, it causes the muscles in the low back to work extra hard to support the body. Inevitably, that system will fail causing a lack of strength in the spinal core. In turn, that will lead to rounded shoulders and forward head tilt. At this point of imbalance, the body is prone to chronic headaches.

The foot bones connected to the leg bone, the leg bones connected to the knee bone. Remember that song? Well, although a fun song to teach children about their bodies, there is a lot of benefits to remembering, as an adult, that everything is, in fact, connected, and an imbalance affects the entire system. A flaw in your skeletal structure and support will, eventually, lead to all sorts of other issues. Having improper support from your feet can, eventually, work its way up your legs, torso and neck. As many know, chiropractic issues in the neck can cause severe headaches, pain in your spine, and even other body ailments. Dr. Andrea recommends orthotics designed to help balance any deficits, allowing your posture to improve. Paying attention to, and correcting these imbalances, will help your chiropractic adjustments be more effective, and hold longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics work?
Feet are the foundation of the body—foot imbalance or dysfunction can have ripple effects, transferring imbalance (and pain) to the ankles, legs, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, even the skull. Foot Levelers orthotics are custom-built to balance and support your unique feet and body, and to suit the demands of your individual lifestyle and activities. By balancing and supporting the feet, they help balance and support the spine, which can help relieve pain and improve your body’s overall biomechanics.
Foot Levelers custom orthotics are a research-proven solution for plantar fasciitis, low back pain, ankle sprains/ankle instability, knee pain, and many other musculoskeletal conditions.

 

What are Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics made of?
Foot Levelers uses premium materials that are built to last. Depending on the orthotic model you select, your orthotics may include Lambson® leather (Luxury line), silver for odor control and Celliant® for more energy (InMotion®, our #1 selling orthotic), shock-absorbing Technology and XRD® Impact Protection (XP3® and XP3+® for extreme athletes), and more. Only Foot Levelers orthotics feature 3 Arch Advantage™ to support all three arches of the foot, not just one. Browse our custom orthotics and learn more about different models here.


What are the best orthotics for flat feet?
Because our orthotics are custom built by a team of highly trained technicians just for you, any model of Foot Levelers orthotics can help address your flat feet.  Our doctor can help you choose the right Foot Levelers model based on your unique activities, lifestyle, health challenges, and wellness goals. Only Foot Levelers’ custom orthotics are backed by 65 years of experience and solid, peer-review research, not to mention a 100% money-back guarantee.

Remember: custom counts. Only Foot Levelers custom orthotics are built just for your unique feet, body, and lifestyle.  Feet are like fingerprints; no two sets are alike. For powerful, lasting results, your orthotics should be as unique as you are.


Why should I be using custom orthotics?
Orthotics offer quality-of-life improvement for anyone, young, old, athletic or otherwise. They can help improve pain, posture, balance and physical performance in all aspects of life. They help prevent or treat low back pain, hip pain, knee pain and neck pain, and are one of the best ways to deal with foot conditions such as bunions, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
Why shouldn't I use over-the-counter orthotics?
Over-the-counter orthotics offer initial comfort and visual appeal—super soft, fancy blue gel, etc.—but they are not necessarily beneficial or lasting. When it comes to your health, we believe that nothing short of custom-made will do. Foot Levelers crafts custom-made orthotics based on scans made by a high-tech 3D scanner with pinpoint accuracy to protect you, not the masses, using materials especially selected to suit your needs.
 

Why is InMotion® the most popular custom-made functional orthotic?
InMotion isn’t called the Performance Edge for no reason. It’s a top-of-the-line product made with the best of our innovative laboratory: silver, Celliant® and the 3 Arch Advantage™, a combination that sets InMotion apart. The top cover is infused with silver to control odors and made with Celliant to increase tissue oxygen in active patients, thereby increasing strength and stamina. The 3 Arch Advantage is the special orientation of corrections that bolsters and maintains the plantar vault and improves balance, posture and physical performance. All three of these aspects combine to make the InMotion the best custom orthotic on the market.


Will one pair of functional orthotics fit all styles of shoes?
Our functional orthotics are custom-made to help maintain your doctor’s adjustments and keep you supported. Each type of orthotic—Premium, Intense, Moderate, etc.—is designed to provide an optimal amount of support for a particular activity, so wearing one type for multiple occasions can compromise their intended support and structural integrity. For instance, wearing a luxury top in your running shoes will not only wear down the material rapidly, since it wasn’t designed for that kind of activity, but it will also slip more easily because it is crafted using leather. That's why we recommend multiple pairs for your multiple shoes and activities.


How often should I get a new pair of functional orthotics?
Orthotics are guaranteed for an entire year, but are built to last for two. Foot Levelers recommends a new pair every two years, but more active patients may require replacements more frequently.


How do I care for my functional orthotics?
Keep your orthotics dry (unless they are Aquaguard™ custom orthotics, designed specifically to withstand moisture). If your orthotics are too long for your shoes, don't worry: trim them carefully by using the original shoe liner as a stencil and cutting around it. Both water damage and mis-trimmings are not covered by the warranty, so please be careful. Take them out of your shoes to “breathe” at the end of every day. It’s best to have multiple pairs of orthotics for support in every pair of shoe, and for every activity.

What Clients Are Saying

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

Dr. Andrea has been a lifelong advocate of chiropractic care ever since she saw the difference it made in her younger sister’s life when she was just a child. After her sister was diagnosed with epilepsy and prescribed medication to treat the condition — which turned her into a shell of her former self — Andrea watched in amazement as chiropractic treatments stopped her sister’s seizures and negated her need for medication. From that moment on, Andrea knew she wanted to be a chiropractor so she could share the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with as many people as she can.
