Arch Madness

Happy Tuesday! Dr Kelly here. Arch Madness!! Don’t worry about if it goes through the hoop, Worry about what is going on your Feet!

Could you need an adjustment just because your feet do not have the proper support?!?

Having your foot drop down or rotate out could be causing major imbalance in your body. This could rotate your knee, which then rotates your hip, which puts stress on your pelvic, spine, TMJ.

Your feet are your foundation for the entire body.

There are 26 bones in your feet. All are joints that can be missed aligned. All CAN BE ADJUSTED.

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.

This helps to get the joints in the foot aligned to help support the arches of your foot.

Working the plantar fascia and the calf muscle help to give the body more support from the bottom up.

Can it really be true that something going on in my feet is affecting my neck?

The ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone, The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone, The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, The thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone, The hip bone’s connected to the back bone…


Also, wearing a custom orthotic will take some of the stress off the body. The orthotics I recommend support all 3 arches of your foot.

If you have a pelvic imbalance that we see on the x-ray, a heel lift may be recommended too.

How can you help support your feet?

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.

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 proprioception. Proprioception helps your balance. I like to associate good balance with longevity.

The better balance you have the less likely you are to fall.

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

shoe soleThere are several different types of orthotics. Which one depends on what your specific needs are.

This could be a full length orthotic for your Golf shoes. Or a short orthotic that will fit into your boot. Or even a custom Flip Flop.

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.

You can reach out by responding to this email or text us if you want to see which orthotic you would benefit from the most. Even better, ask me about it at your next visit.

Yours in Healthy Naturally,
