Orthodonic Footwear - Self Test
Look in the Mirror
Is your body in correct alignment? Take these self exams to see for yourself.
Step 1. Stand barefoot - in shorts or underwear - in front of a full-length mirror, so that you can see from your knees down to your feet. Stand in a relaxed, normal position, facing the mirror. Close your eyes. March in place about 10 steps to position your feet naturally.
Do either or both feet flare outward?
Do either or both feet point inward?
Are either or both kneecaps off center?
Step 2. Stand sideways (first left, then right):
Do either or both feet appear “flat,” with no arch support? Yes No
Do either or both feet appear extra high in the arch area? Yes No
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, your feet are probably pronated or supinated and are not providing proper support for your body.
A balanced body is a happier body! A body that’s out of balance can be causing you pain anywhere from your feet all the way up to your neck. Custom-made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizer Orthotics are specially made just for your feet and for your unique postural condition.
Roll your cursor over the illustration to see correct posture.
In addition, every time your feet hit the ground, a shock wave travels all the way through your body. If your feet are balanced, they can absorb much of that shock. But if they’re not in balance, over time the shock can cause you additional stress/strain.
Now you know why it’s so important to make sure your feet are giving you the proper support and protection your whole body needs. If they’re not, it’s time to ask your doctor whether Foot Levelers’ Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers could help you.
Your postural condition is as unique to you as your fingerprint.
Make sure you get the best orthotic for your health- one that features the patented Gait Cycle System®.
The Gait Cycle System is unique because it addresses all three phases of the your step:
Hip Roll Demo
This demo shows how even a minor movement in your feet can affect your pelvis. If there is imbalance in the feet, it’s likely that hip motion will become unequal (more on one side than the other). Over time, this imbalance can potentially cause postural stresses and strains.
Step 1. Place your fingertips lightly on your hip bones about three inches below your belt where your pocket is. (see pictures at right).
