Did you know that your feet should reflect your general health? Foot pain is not normal. If you have the proper fitting footwear, and give your feet some attention, your feet can be pain-free.
When purchasing shoes, most people purchase them too small because they do not know their true foot size (length and width). A professional foot scan can determine if you are wearing the correct shoe size and if your feet could benefit from orthotics (inserts for the shoes). At Stucky Chiropractic Center we offer the latest in foot scanning technology that measures your foot size, arch type and pressure points.
Our chiropractors will help you understand the results of the foot scan, and provide you with a customized plan to keep your feet pain-free. If orthotics are recommended for you, we will properly fit them to your foot; this includes custom-ordered high quality inserts as needed.
In addition, here are some tips for your feet that you can get started with right away:
- Treat yourself to a massage and an adjustment at Stucky Chiropractic Center. There are 15,000 nerves in your feet alone, along with many pressure points that can be manipulated to help relieve foot pain, and overall stress.
- Give your feet a rest! Women tend to have 4 times the problems that men have with feet because of shoe styles, mainly high heels. If you wear comfortable shoes, with a proper fit, your feet and your posture will benefit.
- At the end of the day, give your feet some extra attention. Increase the blood circulation by gently kneading them with your thumbs. To keep them supple, rub them with coconut oil or a high quality foot cream.
- Socks made with copper fibers have been clinically proven to help eliminate problems your feet can incur due to fungi, odor and bacteria commonly occurring in shoes.
