Custom Orthotics – More Than Shoe Insoles

Functional Orthotics For Wellness

Most Chiropractors advertise pain relief without drugs and care for injuries. Many doctors and practices have begun labeling and promoting themselves as Wellness Centers. A wellness practice focuses on maintaining a pre-existing level of musculoskeletal balance and postural health and preventing conditions that might alter this state of health. The challenge is, how can healthy patients help be protected from problems that might arise in the future? The answer is simple: custom-made orthotics. Custom orthotics may be traditionally seen as a preventative measure, but so are most treatments of old. They are the perfect, foundational support your patients will never want to go without.

Wellness is a great concept—one of those “win-win” situations for doctors and patients. Orthotics are the perfect way to implement this concept and help establish a “preventative” approach, in addition to the traditional reactive ones, if need be. Let’s take a look at the foundation of the body, and see just how useful orthotics can be.

Save Your Back While Raking Leaves


The splendor of the fall season is the brightly colored foliage. Unfortunately, that beauty falls away, and you’re left to rake it all up! But before you march outside with rake in hand, you’ll want to take care to avoid injury and steer clear of starting the holiday season laid up from simple yard work.

Think about it. If a little game of pick-up football or a round of golf with friends and family in the crisp autumn air can cause injury, then so could fall yard work. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) concurs: “The twisting, turning, bending and reaching of mowing and raking can also cause injury if your body is not prepared. As an athlete, if you leap into something without warming up or knowing how to do it, [then] the chances of injury are greater.” The most common injuries from raking leaves are upper- or lower-back strain, neck strain and pain in the shoulders. So how do you avoid back strain while raking leaves this fall?
