Chiropractors in San Francisco

The contemporary practice of chiropractic these days involves much more than just correction of subluxation(s) or misaligned spinal vertebrae and the resulting nervous system interference. In order to stabilize the spine, the hips need to be stabilized. This is best achieved by bringing stability to the foundation of the body's posture, the feet. San Francisco chiropractors often recommend orthotics for this purpose. Your chiropractor will create a suitable orthotic by conducting a thorough assessment of your lower limbs and gait. A cast of the feet is then made in order to prepare an orthotic to compensate for uneven leg lengths and other anomalies.

San Francisco chiropractors are well trained and qualified in lower limb biomechanics and orthotic prescription. One of the major reasons why some people need orthotic therapy is due to a condition known as "fallen arches" or over-pronation. This condition may be caused by various factors which include continuous walking on hard surfaces, weak ankle muscles, age, and more. Over-pronation is common in individuals who are overweight and in the 50 plus age group. Among the health conditions that over-pronation may cause are heel pain, bone spurs, knee pain, low back pain, and plantar fasciitis.

When an orthotic is placed inside the shoe, it helps restore optimal foot function and prevent many injuries, pain, and discomfort to the lower limbs and feet. The main objective is to realign the feet and ankle joint to its original position and reduce pressure on the feet. San Francisco chiropractors warn that custom orthotics ought not to be mistaken for a basic insole, since they are specifically designed for an individual's feet and replace the store-bought insole that comes with the shoe. If you have been experiencing heel pain, low back pain, or similar symptoms, you may want to consider an examination by one of the chiropractors in San Francisco listed here. Chiropractic care, combined with an orthotic for your shoe may just be the answer.
