April 6, 2013 — April is National Foot Health Awareness Month and is dedicated to encouraging people to understand how their feet influence their health. By evaluating patients’ feet and gait, healthcare professionals may discover imbalances leading to several postural problems. The feet are the foundation of the body. When patients don’t have a balanced foundation it causes pain in different parts of the body.
Foot Levelers’ Stabilizing Orthotics are individually designed, flexible orthotics that support all three arches of the foot and help align the feet, ankles, knees, and hips to provide a balanced foundation for the body. Stabilizing Orthotics also help chiropractic adjustments hold longer, helping prolong patients’ wellness
Foot Health Awareness Month provides a great opportunity to help educate communities about the importance of supporting the body’s foundation — the feet. Attending health fairs and hosting special events at clinics this month are great ways to get the message about whole body wellness from the ground up to the public and potential patients.
