Custom Orthotics in Bainbridge Island

Chiropractic Bainbridge Island WA Custom Orthotics

Custom-made orthotics in Bainbridge Island can be beneficial for a variety of different health conditions ranging from plantar fasciitis to knee or hip pain. The natural arches in the feet start and support the entire kinetic chain from the bottom of the feet to the top of the head. Age, occupation, body weight, and other factors can cause the tissues that form the arches to break down. When the arches start to fail, the foot begins to pronate or roll toward the middle.

At Living Well Bainbridge, we have the latest technology to diagnose and treat arch problems. We start with a 3D foot scan to determine if pronation of the feet exists and to what degree. Pronation of the feet affects the kinetic chain as it is the foundation. When the arch of the foot flattens and drops towards the floor, internal rotation of the lower leg follows, putting an increased load on the inner side of the knee. This then leads to increased tightness and tension to the iliotibial (IT) band, and eventually unleveling of the pelvis.


Why Custom Orthotics in Bainbridge Island?

By using an orthotic to support the arches, keeps the foot in a neutral position and maintains the natural alignment of the kinetic chain. Determining the proper orthotic is the next step. At Living Well Bainbridge in Bainbridge Island, we offer different options from standard arch supports to custom-molded orthotics. When making a custom-molded orthotic, Dr. Kovara uses a cutting-edge LightBox to cure a custom-molded pair of orthotics in about five minutes that is unique for each individual person. Some insurance companies will cover custom-molded orthotics. Our office is happy to do a complimentary benefits check on your behalf to find out if there is orthotic coverage on your individual insurance policy.
