Most orthotic companies only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body. Functional orthotics such as Foot levelers, support the three interconnected arches of your foot, the plantar vault. The structural support for the entire body’s equilibrium is gained from your feet’s plantar vault.
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick connective tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) that helps maintain the arches of the foot. The inflammation is due to tearing of the tissue. This tearing can often be attributed to improper support of the plantar vault. The soles of the feet are very painful, especially in the early morning. The condition tends to be chronic and difficult to heal without proper foot support.
Back pain is a common symptom of an unbalanced foundation. Having an unbalanced foundation can cause dysfunction of the joints and muscles of the back, and can cause nerve root syndromes such as herniated discs, spinal degeneration, and inflammation. Achieving a balanced foundation may reduce this pain and dysfunction of the lower back. Ask how Foot levelers can help you.
