Orthotics in Bainbridge Island

Chiropractic Bainbridge Island WA Orthotics

Shoe orthotics combined with chiropractic care in Bainbridge Island can significantly improve pain felt in the lower back.  Dysfunction is caused by interference in the kinetic chain.  The kinetic chain are joints and segments having effect on one another during movement. When one is in motion, it creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments.  This is especially found in the foot, ankle, knee and hips. All parts of the body are connected to one another with one part effecting the other. As one part of the body is out of alignment, so too will become the other parts. 

What Can Orthotics Help in Bainbridge Island?

Two very common foot issues are overpronation and flat feet. Foot pronation occurs when the foot excessively rolls inward. Common injuries that are found with overpronation include plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee, stress fractures and tendinitis.  Flat Feet occur when the foot arch collapses causing the foot to flatten. This can lead to arthritis, Achilles tendinitis, shin splints and plantar fasciitis.

It is not necessary to have pain to take advantage of the benefits of an orthotic. Orthotics in Bainbridge Island help to make day to day living more comfortable and efficient by changing the angles that the foot hits the ground. Whether walking, running, jumping or standing the angle of your foot is a huge factor in pain and alignment. Finding the correct orthotic to align your foot properly can greatly improve posture and athletic performance.

Your chiropractor can visually examine the foot to determine if there are any misalignments. Living Well Chiropractic & Massage is equipped with a foot scanner which will find the distribution of weight upon standing and how that relates to pronation, flat feet and even supination.  Custom orthotics can be ordered or even made right there in the office in a matter of minutes.

Your feet will need a period of adjusting to your new orthotics.  It is recommended to only wear your orthotics a few hours each day for the first 48 hours.  Your foot will need to gradually adjust to the new positioning.  By the second week, patient should be able to wear orthotics throughout the entire day. Orthotics generally last about 12 months.
