Do you suffer from foot pain?

How do your feet feel after a long day at work or after a workout? Do you suffer from foot pain?

One of the most common foot problems, plantar fasciitis, occurs in over two million Americans a year, and will occur in 1 in 10 Americans over their lifetime. Additionally, over 95% of us will develop some type of foot ailment due to collapsing arch structure. There are many routine treatments for foot problems, from anti-inflammatory pills to cortisone injections, to different pads, cushions, ointments and, of course, surgery. All of these have temporary, pain-relieving effects. 


To permanently solve the problem, you must change the way your feet function on the ground. The foot is a complex area of the body that is made up of 26 bones and even more joints that all work together when you move. When it works as designed, the foot is capable of remarkable things which all help insure not only pain-free health of the foot, but the parts up the chain, including ankles, knees, hips and spine. The foot unwinds to absorb shock as the heel strikes the ground, changes shape to accommodate to varied terrain, then winds back up to be a firm, propulsive lever to advance forward. When your foot is not working properly the warning signs include localized foot pain when on your feet, or just growing foot fatigue during weight-bearing activities.


Five Reason Why You Should Be Concerned about your Feet:



  1. Foot pain and deformity get worse over time
  2. Surgery is not a long-term solution
  3. Foot problems affect the knee, hip and back
  4. Feet get flatter over time
  5. Foot pain will sideline any active person until it is fixed  

The best time to start giving your feet back the function they need is when you first notice any problems. The only way to do that is with chiropractic adjustments and to get a true custom, biomechanical orthotic. I use Sole Supports custom orthotics because I have had personal success with them. Being a former gymnast and cheerleader, my feet have taken a beating from all of the tumbling and jumping. I naturally have high arches, but all of the tumbling has caused them to collapse which created intense arch and foot pain. This foot pain began affecting my entire leg and started going into my back. I was adjusted and molded for my Sole Supports over seven years ago and have not had any foot issues since I began wearing them. All the common, non-traumatic foot conditions respond well to them, especially if you get them before the problem gets very bad. Because every foot deformity is flexible at first but will harden and become arthritic if left too long. Just like any other part of your health, the sooner a problem is treated the easier it is to fix and to begin creating EnVitality again!

Yours in health,
