What does Foot Month have to do with Chiropractic care?” you ask.

Well, the feet are integral to Chiropractic, because they form the foundation of our kinetic chain. The spinal column rests on the sacrum, which articulates with the bones that form the hip joints, which connect to the thigh, knees, legs, ankles, and ultimately THE FEET.

If this sounds like the Dem Bones song that we sang as children, then you’re right! Movements (or lack thereof) in one part of the body can have an affect in an area that it’s ultimately connected to – this is the concept of the kinetic chain.  And, a small change in one part of the chain can have an effect elsewhere.

Maintaining Spinal Mobility

This underlines the importance of maintaining good spinal mobility, posture, removing subluxations (areas of restricted spinal motion), and supporting our foundation properly.  With Foot Levelers Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers, it’s easier than ever to correct postural problems of the foot and maintain the health of our arches.  Together, chiropractic adjustments and a secure foundation to our kinetic chain can help to keep the body biomechanically sound.
