Arch Madness

Happy Tuesday! Dr Kelly here. March Madness? No, it’s ARCH Madness!

before and afterDon’t worry about if it goes through the hoop, worry about what is going on your Feet! You could need an adjustment in your neck just because your feet do not have the proper support. Having your foot drop down or rotate out could cause a major imbalance in your body. This could rotate your knee, which then rotates your hip, which puts stress on your pelvic, spine, TMJ, all the way up to your neck!

The orthotics that I recommend are spinal pelvic stabilizers. They provide support to not only your feet, but your spine too!

Your feet are your foundation for the entire body. Have you seen other people in the office laying on the table with their shoes off? They probably are going to get their feet adjusted. There are 26 bones in your feet. All are joints that can be misaligned and need to be adjusted. This helps to get the joints in the foot aligned to help support the arches of your foot.

A fun exercise to do at home is the Stork. This is as simple as standing on one leg and seeing how long you can stand without losing your balance.

Warning: Make sure you are by a chair or wall to support you if you starts to lose your balance. Review with me BEFORE you try this at home.

Why get your feet scanner

You can try this Stork with and without your inserts. You will notice a difference. There is more stability with a solid foundation.

The Stork exercise allows you to work your balance.

We talked about osteoporosis, your DEXA scan and your actual risk of falling. The better balance you have the less likely you are to fall.

Get balanced with your adjustments starting with your custom orthotics in your shoes!

You may already have a pair of orthotics from your podiatrist. The orthotics here are spine pelvic stabilizers and support all three arches of you foot.

Over the years I have collected a couple of pairs that I rotate around. I have my short orthotic in most of my shoes. The full length orthotic is in my gym shoe. I typically move that one around to all my sport like shoes.


  • ANY Orthotic
  • ANY XP3 Sports Collection
  • ANY Flip-Flop


Text ORTHOTIC if you would like a new pair of inserts for your shoes. Even better, ask me at your next visit. We can review which orthotic best fits your current needs.
