Most people are unaware that some of the body's aches can arise from their feet. The way your feet make contact with the ground as you walk is very important and can be the reason why your knee, your back or your hip are misaligned. In turn, your entire posture is crooked and your body begins to compensate for such distortion, no matter how small, involving muscles and joints that are not usually supposed to be involved. This in turn, causes undue wear and tear on the side that is compensating, and this leads to chronic pain. Leveling your feet will help to correct the problem, especially after alignment treatments and with a more balanced settlement of the body, your pain will be relieved. We have helped many clients feel better with recommending stabilizing custom orthotics. Moreover, orthotics are covered by Flexible Spending Accounts ( FSAs), which means you can use your pre-tax money to purchase them and capitalize on these savings.
