The arches in our feet act as shock absorbers with every step we take. Injuring our ankles and feet that don’t get properly rehabilitated, being over weight, pregnancy, and pelvic distortions increase the demands placed on our arches and if that stress is present for too long, the arches begin to weaken. Our lives are becoming increasingly more sedentary as more and more jobs and schooling require us to sit the majority of the day. Sitting for too long can cause an imbalance between opposing muscles in our pelvis (the back and front pelvic muscles). As the muscles become more and more imbalanced, the pelvis begins to tilt forward and to the side where the muscle imbalance is worse; causing the legs to turn outward increasing stress to the hips, knees, and feet/arches. Exercising and playing sports with these alterations to the feet, legs, and pelvis causes micro trauma that eventually leads to hip and knee replacements as well as possible low back and lumbar disc issues.  In these scenarios, the orthotics take a supporting role for the feet as we address the muscle imbalances and pelvic rotations. Addressing all three areas are vitally important:

     1) Arches in the Feet
     2) Muscle imbalance in the pelvis
     3) Pelvic rotation.

If you’re having repeated pain in your low back, hip, knees, and feet, orthotics is something to consider. Also if you’ve been to a chiropractor and feel like your adjustments aren’t staying in place as long as they should, addressing your pelvic muscle imbalance, pelvic distortions, and the arches in your feet all together could be the missing link in solving your pain problem.
