Here’s an innovative idea to address your nagging back pain or to simply maintain your spine health: orthotics. Not to be confused with an orthopedic shoe, orthotics are prescription medical device shoe inserts.
Dr. H. Khayal has seen orthotics help patients with spine misalignment issues, posture problems, and other spinal conditions and is experienced with fitting patients for custom-made orthotics. His holistic approach to your treatment ensures that every option to support your wellness is considered.
According to a recent NIH study, nearly 26% of those involved had flat feet: See study here
How do orthotics improve spinal health?
When we talk about orthotics at Premier Chiro Med, we’re not referring to the drugstore one-size-fits-all type of shoe insert. Prescribed orthotics are made for you and only you. They address foot, gait, and posture problems and help alleviate foot pain caused by everything from diabetes to arthritis, as well as flat feet.
Dr. Khayal is a firm believer in orthotics to treat pelvic instability, misaligned spine, improper posture, and injury. Orthotics help bring you into better alignment and balance, which gives them an important role to play in ensuring that your spine stays healthy.
How are orthotics made?
No two feet or ankles are alike — even on the same person — so creating orthotics a complex procedure that requires considerable expertise. With the aid of high-tech tools, Dr. Khayal makes a mold from your own foot or ankle to address whatever issue you’re dealing with.
Dr. Khayal has witnessed, time and time again, how patients’ lives change for the better as their discomfort is relieved by orthotics that give them overall body support. He offers Foot Levelers Inc. orthotics, and our Premier Chiro Med team offers education along with your orthotics. We instruct you on how and when to wear them and advise you about their care.
Orthotics are medical multi-taskers
Dr. Khayal knows orthotics are more than just run-of-the-mill inserts. As opposed to mass-produced inserts, orthotics are sophisticated and reflect a clinician’s professional assessment and the fact that they are designed for your body alone.
Orthotics treat a diverse array of physical conditions but at the same time offer preventive and maintenance care. With proper care, they can last for a few years.
We want to see you as pain-free, mobile, and comfortable as possible very quickly. See what a massive difference these therapeutic miracles can make when they’re molded to the exact contours of your feet and ankles.
