Foot Levelers Custom Molded Orthotics
Alt Chiropractic uses scanner technology to provide patients with an individualized assessment. Foot Levelers, custom stabilizing orthotics, are individually designed providing a balanced foundation for the body. The majority of patients who present with neuro-musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities are found to have excessive pronation. Correcting pronation by wearing stabilizing orthotics can improve quality of life.
This highly specialized devise produces very high frequency sound waves. These sound waves are completely silent but very powerful. They are transmitted through a conducting gel or lotion and then through the skin, fat, and muscle, all the way to the bone. When ultrasound is used properly over painful muscles, the patient will experience mild warmth and a soothing effect. Basically, the sound waves cause the muscle cells to “wiggle” and release toxins that have accumulated in the muscle. The blood circulation comes in and washes it all away. During the therapy, the patient may feel mild warmth or nothing at all. Most patients feel immediate pain relief from ultrasound therapy.
