Orthotics in Chesapeake, VA

Foot pain with our Chesapeake Chiropractor

Many of the aches and pains we experience in one part of the body actually have their origins in a problem with some other part of the body. Whether you suffer from constantly aching feet or you struggle with other musculoskeletal complaints, you may benefit from custom orthotics made to provide optimal support to your individual feet. Our chiropractor at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, Dr. Santjer, will be happy to determine whether this type of care can help you feel and function better.

What Are Custom Orthotics -- and How Can They Help You?

When the body moves, its weight is distributed down through the joints of the weight-bearing structures in an arrangement known as the kinetic chain. Unfortunately, musculoskeletal imbalances anywhere along the way can put some weak links in that kinetic chain -- and these imbalances may start with the feet.

The three arches of the feet provide vital support and balance for the entire body, but some people's arches are abnormally high or low. Others may have a spinal misalignment or congenital issue that throws their body weight off balance. Whatever the underlying cause may be, if your body cannot maintain a healthy stance or gait, it may develop such painful problems as plantar fasciitis (a painful inflammation of the arches), hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, and low back pain. You may also be especially susceptible to acute strains such as sports injuries. Orthotics compensate by lending extra arch support in a manner that eases foot discomfort and straightens out the kinetic chain.

Personalized Solutions for Your Particular Condition

You may have tried "one size fits all" arch supports in the store only to be disappointed with the results. Custom orthotics provide a one-of-a-kind solution to musculoskeletal imbalances. Unlike over-the-counter insoles which can only approximate the necessary correction, custom orthotics are fabricated based on precise digital scans of your feet.

Our chiropractor will evaluate your spine, stance, gait, feet, and symptoms to determine whether you're a good candidate for custom orthotics. We may prescribe orthotics as a complement to other techniques such as chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy, both of which can help you develop a straighter, healthier everyday posture. The right combination of therapies can ease your pain and help you protect your musculoskeletal health for life -- all without surgery or drugs.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
