Chiropractic care is a viable treatment for a number of conditions that occur due to spine misalignment. Treatment also includes evaluation of leg lengths discrepancies, the application of approved heel lifts, and orthotics implementation in order to help relieve Lower Back Pain as well as enhance athletic performance.
Heel lifts (which are commonly referred to as shoe inserts) are often used as a form of therapy for leg-length differences which can lead to knee, hip, joint, and back pain. Heel lifts attempt to reduce stress that gets put on the Achilles' tendon during the healing process in addition to other rehabilitation purposes.
Orthotics, right in line with heel lifts, are custom-made heel inserts which are designed to reduce knee, hip, joint, and back pain.
Heel lifts and orthotics can also be used by athletes to improve foot support, bolster speed, and prevent future injury.
