Custom Foot Orthotics
Foot Orthotics (also known as shoe inserts or arch supports) are a medical appliance that fit into a person’s footwear. They are designed to support the feet and improve posture. They can lift and/or support an arch as well as stabilize the heel.
For example, postural collapse of the foot results in a flattening of the arch. If left untreated this often leads to undesirable changes in the function of the foot, knee, hip and low back joints. This change in function can be an underlying cause of Plantar Fasciitis as well as other pain throughout the body.
Accurately capturing your feet in their ideal posture is what makes a custom orthotic so superior to a generic orthotic while still working with virtually any shoe type.
Dr. Stephenson will take the time to evaluate your feet and stride to cast the best orthotic for each individual’s needs.
Many individuals are unable or do not wish to take medication for allergies or sinus problems and instead choose natural healing methods. Dr. Stephenson uses a combination of chiropractic care, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling to provide relief from nasal, sinus, and allergy symptoms.
Chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture promote drainage, clear the nasal passages, and reduce blockage as well as strengthening the immune system. When your immune system is supported and calm, allergic reactions will lessen naturally, without the need to take harmful medication on a daily basis.
Chiropractic and acupuncture can also decrease the levels of histamine and cortisol reducing allergies related to environmental factors such as dust, dander, pet hair, pollen, etc.
Nutrition recommendations are also considered. Whether it is finding and eliminating certain foods that trigger allergies or suggesting a nutritional supplement to support your body.
