Foot Levelers is the trusted leader in custom-made, Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are shoe inserts (orthotics) that allow the body to maintain proper posture, balance, and spinal alignment. Each Spinal Pelvic Stabilizer is custom-made and patient-specific so that no two inserts are the same between patients.
Why do people need Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
The foot is comprised of three arches. When even just one arch in the foot is compromised, the body can be out of balance due to the foot being imbalanced. When patients are scanned for a set of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers, a custom-made orthotic is made to support all three arches in the patient’s foot in order to properly support all of the structures above the feet.
When people do not have a solid foundation in their feet, they may suffer from ankle pain, shin splints, knee pain, hip pain, and back pain due to the kinetic-chain effect of an improperly balanced foot.
What does a foot scan show?
A foot scan shows the development of the arches in your feet and any imbalances and differences between your two feet. With each foot scan, a pronation/stability index is given to a patient indicating whether the patient is in the optimal, mild, moderate, and severe ranges of pronation. Pronation occurs feet roll inward, placing weight on the inside of the foot, causing inward rotation of the knee and forward tilting of the pelvis. The higher the pronation, the more likely you are to experience pain in the feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders, and neck. Common injuries associated with pronation include shin splints, plantar fascitis, and bunions.
The body assessment image illustrates how imbalances in your feet can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt, and shoulder drop. The scan provides insight to your healthcare provider about your postural health. A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, a level pelvis, and level shoulders.
