Insoles, heel lifts, shoe inserts-whatever you want to call them, orthotics might just be the answer to chronic muscle and joint discomfort/pain. You know the stuff, the achy hip, the knee that won’t bend, the arm that won’t lift, the sore muscles and back while walking, or standing…know what I’m talking about?
Worn inside your shoes, orthotics are meant to balance your feet and set a level foundation for your entire upright, skeletal posture.
If you built a house on an un-level foundation, it would look like it was falling over. The same is true for your skeleton, only the muscles and joints of the body tighten and dysfunction in an effort to keep you standing upright.
If your chronic neck or back pain is due to an un-level foundation brought about by a fallen arch or flat feet, all the chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, medications, surgery, etc. will not correct the problem until the foundation is level and functioning correctly.
