Roanoke, VA – Your patients’ feet may not be hurting, but if they have back pain – check their feet. Why? In the old song favorite, it’s because….”the foot bone’s connected to the leg bone, the leg bone’s connected to the hip bone” (and so on). By age 20, 80 percent of people will develop some type of foot imbalance. By age 40, foot imbalances plague virtually everyone.
The feet are the foundation of the body. They provide support for the entire skeletal frame, and help absorb shock as the body moves. Like any structure, the body’s foundation must be stable to support the weight above it. If the arches in one or both of the feet collapse, the body doesn’t get the correct postural support – causing an imbalance in the skeletal frame.
Movement at one joint affects movement at other joints, and every time the foot hits the ground to take a step the imbalance passes all the way up the skeletal structure. Over time, the body tries to compensate and this imbalance can cause pain in any number of places like the knees, hips, pelvis, low back, and neck. This stress or pain on other parts of the body can occur - even if the feet don’t hurt.
Fortunately, this imbalance can be easily corrected using custom-made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers. Stabilizers support all three arches of the foot and help to align the ankles, hips, and pelvis to provide a balanced foundation for the spine. Stabilizers even help your patients’ chiropractic adjustments hold longer.
