Did you know that problems in your feet can cause problems throughout your body?
You may already be experiencing pain in different areas of your body and not realising it is starting from your feet.
Some quick facts on feet:
¼ of the body’s bones are in the feet;
The foot has three separate arches;
1% of the population has the optimal foot;
99% of people pronate (most of the weight on the inside of the feet) or supinate (most of the weight on the outside of the feet);
Problems in the feet cause problems in the body.
Have you ever wondered about your feet?
From the 17th to the 23rd May it is FOOT WEEK at CHIROACTIVE and we are encouraging everyone to have a FREE foot scan.
It’s FREE, takes just a few minutes and you will see the results for yourself straight away.
At CHIROACTIVE we use a Footlevelers kiosk which can take a 3D weight-bearing scan of your feet in a matter of seconds. It’s as simple as entering a few details, standing and scanning. At the end of the scan your results are displayed and a report is also emailed to you.
What if the scan finds an issue with my feet?
If you’re patient of the clinic, a copy of your report will also be sent to Dr McCann who will discuss it with you at your next appointment. If you’re not currently a patient of the clinic, Dr. McCann will contact you to discuss your results. NO PRESSURE to do anything. If we find a problem, it’s completely up to you to decide what you want to do about it.
Footlevelers are custom orthotics that are individually designed for your feet, helping you to achieve a balanced foundation, stabilizing the pelvis and reducing the impact on your body. If they are indicated for you, and you decide to go down that path, the cost is $300 a pair with rebates available from most Health Funds. On top of that, there is a 12 month satisfaction guarantee, so if we can’t get you comfortable, you’ll simply get your money back – every cent.
Footlevelers customized orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the plantar vault. Since Footlevelers are custom-made by hand from 3D digital scans of your feet, no two pairs of Foot Levelers custom orthotics are alike!
Innovations such as the 3-Arch Support, high quality materials and scanning technology enable the production of a bespoke orthotic – individually crafted for your feet. This results in a quality orthotic with the potential to help low back pain and other forms of pain typically related to foot conditions.
