Chiropractic Care and Foot Problems
Chiropractic Care and Foot Problems is both a common problem and solution in modern society. The foot is made up of twenty six bones. Each pair or series has their own articulation where they interact with the others in their proximity . As with the other body joints the bones of the foot can become misaligned. These misalignments are known as subluxations which only a trained chiropractor is best able to deal with. The foot is also the basis for the bio-mechanical structure of the spine as it provides a level platform for the body to organize the postural reflexes around. If the foot wear is compromised or if there is a lack of mobility in the feet often pain will be felt in the low back or neck area. A patient can go to physical therapy every week until the sun blows up but if the feet are not adjusted properly their problems will often continue. As part of the patient’s treatment plan a chiropractor may also recommend changes in foot wear or customized orthotics inserts to be worn in the shoes. The inserts are molded to fit the patients feet and can easily be moved through several different pairs of shoes which the patient choses to wear.
