Many problems of the spine and pelvis can stem from problems in the feet.  The feet are the foundation on which we rely for stability.  If the mechanics are off due to loss of arch, it causes a chain reaction that carries into the knees, hips, pelvis, lower back, upper back and shoulders, and ultimately to the head.  DeFalco Family Chiropractic assess the feet to see if they are contributing to your spinal problems and correct as necessary with chiropractic adjustments, exercises and orthotics.

Orthotics are specifically designed inserts that replace your shoe’s insole to restore proper mechanics to the spine, allowing for better stability when you stand, walk and run.  Orthotics help restore proper mechanics, which in turn reduces strain on the knees, hips, pelvis and low back.   DeFalco Family Chiropractic has a computerized scan to measure the weight distribution in the feet and assess the need for orthotics. Our chiropractic office uses two different kinds of orthotics depending on your need.

After our chiropractic office has determined your need for orthotics, we will prescribe the appropriate kind of orthotics for your specific needs.  Orthotics will enhance your body’s functionality, reduce the pain that you feel in other areas, and orthotics contribute to your total body wellness.
