FULLY CUSTOMIZED ORTHOTICS
There are many companies who sell what are known as orthotics. Many are generically designed and support only one arch. Each foot has three arches (medial arch, transverse arch, lateral arch) which comprise the plantar vault. If there is a problem with more than one arch, a one arch orthotic can shift the weight bearing function of the plantar vault and perhaps create another imbalance in the mechanics of the musculoskeletal system. Paraphrasing Newton's Third Law of Motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Would you wear eyeglasses that weren’t prescribed for you?
Or take an over-the-counter drug for a problem that requires a prescription drug?
Probably not. Fully customized orthotics which properly support all three interconnected arches of the plantar vault will serve you well like a precision ground pair of eye glasses.
Conditions which can respond to supporting the plantar vault through fully customized orthotics are:
Why Do You Need Stabilizers?
Each foot has 3 arches that support your whole body. If just one of those arches changes so that it doesn't support the body like it should, it causes an imbalance in your foot.
Why Do You Need Stabilizers?
Imbalances can cause a chain reaction of pain-from your feet to your knees, to your hips, to your back-all the way up to your neck!
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers help to restore the balance between the 3 arches, leveling all the structures above them.
Why Should I Be Scanned?
The digital foot posture scanner clearly shows where any imbalances in your feet are.
What Does My Scan Mean?
Your foot scan image shows two things:
1.Changes in the arches in your feet
2.If your body is balanced or not
These images can tell your healthcare provider many things about your postural health!
Call us when you are ready and we can examine and scan your feet in a weight bearing position to determine if Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers will benefit your particular condition.
The examination is painless and does not take much time to perform.
I have been seeing Dr. Michael Tereo for a variety of issues. Long term sports injuries, age, and the fallout from that. His suggestion corroborated by tests, indicated that my problems could be majorly helped by the use of orthotics. I bought some inserts, which can be shifted from shoe to shoe. However, being a sandal girl was convinced to purchase the CHAOS sandals (orthotics built in). I wear them constantly, and I'm a shoe girl, and they have helped immensely in stabilizing my gait and balance. I highly recommend orthotics for anyone suffering from back pain, hip pain or gait issues. I love them. Wear them all the time. And they are really cute!! Sincerely, Thank you Dr. T.
