Proper Foot Support & What Custom Orthotics can do for You.


Custom Orthotics?

What do you mean, CUSTOM Orthotics? “I can get Orthotics just about anywhere and they are fairly cheap.” Well, over-the-counter insoles might cost less but they are also generic sized arches and typically only support one arch. When you are only supporting one arch in you foot, it may not support the plantar vault which can cause problems in other parts of your body. In addition to this over-supporting one arch can cause more pain as well. Over-supporting or under-supporting is bad foot support. Like any bad support this will cause pain and discomfort. So how are Custom Orthotics better? I’m glad you asked! With our 3-D foot scanner we can measure 18 different points of pressure in your feet that make up the 3 arches in your foot this gives us the exact arch support of all 3 arches for your feet giving you the best support you can have!

The Plantar Vault

So, I need to support all 3 arches or I’m not supporting the Plantar Vault? What is this Plantar Vault and why is it so important? Good question! The Plantar Vault is a three-arched bond that supports the entire body and provides many benefits. The three arches that make up the Plantar Vault are the Medial Longitudinal arch, Lateral Longitudinal arch, and anterior transverse (metatarsal). Some of the benefits of the Plantar Vault are balancing the body, propelling us forward, safely absorbing our heel-strike shock, and adapting to walking and running stresses. When one or more of the arches have weakened the body will compensate and shift away from the weakened arch and apply more pressure and stress to the other arches. Pronation and supination of the foot creates an imbalance which can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt, and shoulder drop. Instabilities can lead to conditions such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and neck pain. With a properly aligned body you will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis, and shoulders, and wearing Custom Orthotics can help to alleviate imbalances and the conditions that can be caused by those imbalances. Supporting the Plantar Vault properly is very important, so some get a free 3-D foot scan at Teachout Chiropractic and Wellness Center!


The Foundation

Your feet are the foundation of your body. Like the foundation of any structure it must be stable and well balanced to properly support the structure of which it holds. In our case this structure is our body. Without proper stability, balance, and support, the structure-our body-will have many problems, weak spots, and will fall apart more quickly. Think ‘head, shoulders, knees, and toes’ backwards. Problems with the feet cause problems with the knees, the hips, the shoulders, and the neck. With proper support and balance you have strong and level knees, level pelvic bone, level shoulders, and stronger posture!

Most common issues that come from unsupported feet are knee and low back pain. Getting adjusted will definitely help with this pain buy getting to the root cause and properly supporting your feet can reduce pain and help your adjustments hold even longer! Not having proper support for your feet will cause you to be unbalanced and shift your weight to one area more than another causing strain to the body, which in turn will cause a misalignment. So, if you are having joint pain, or pain in your back or neck and can’t figure out why, don’t you think its time to have a foot scan done? Here at Teachout Chiropractic & Wellness Center we will scan your feet at no cost to you! You will receive a brief report describing your feet and a recommendation as to which custom-made orthotics you should get, if needed.
