Dr. Josh Recommends Orthotics
Overall, orthotics can provide many health benefits, including reducing pain, improving mobility, enhancing sports performance, preventing injuries, and promoting better overall body and spinal alignment. Based on your chiropractic evaluation and lifestyle/history, there may be an indication for custom or generalized orthotic support to enhance your chiropractic care.
Non-Custom Orthotics such as Superfeet & Sidas Products
These devices are “ready-to-go” for those who simply have an unsupported foot, some over-pronation (rolling of the ankle), or want to increase their fitness and lifestyle performance. Most people who are fitted with these options experience: Improved shock absorption, Increased fit, comfort and performance, reduced pain from plantar fasciitis, bunions and heel spurs, more efficient stride and improved posture and balance. They are available at their online retailers, or for a personalized fit, at the local and long established Runner’s Shop.
We now carry VoxxLife Insoles & Socks
VoxxLife insoles (renamed the Super Patch company) – are a revolutionary product and a simple solution that provides support for your feet.
How does Voxx’s Technology Work?
Voxx’s insoles start with a special tactile pattern known as Voxx HPT. This pattern is specially woven into each of their wellness and performance products. Contact with this HPT pattern triggers a neural response in the brainstem that helps manage pain, as well as improve mobility and balance.
How do you wear Voxx’s socks?
All you have to do is wear the socks, insoles or patches to experience the benefits of Voxx HPT. Our Voxx HPT patterns trigger a neuro response that sends information from the receptors on the bottom of your feet (or the inside of your forearm) to your brainstem.
The effect is immediate, so you focus less on overcoming wellness and quality of life challenges and more on living a happier, healthier life.
How does Voxx’s HPT technology help with improving mobility?
Voxxlife technology can improve your mobility by strengthening your neuromuscular performance, balance and stability.
Incorporated into socks, insoles, and patches, VoxxLife technology uses a tactile pattern that activates somatosensory (touch) and proprioception (spatial awareness) receptors in the skin to induce changes in brainwave patterns that are detectable by electroencephalography (EEG). In a study of 69 patients, VoxxLife socks (referred to as Dermatome Neuropoint Activating Socks in the study) improved balance and stability control relative to regular socks by 36% as measured using the Sway Medical Balance assessment tool.
Wellness & Casual
Athletic & Lifestyle
Based on your chiropractic assessment and lifestyle/history, there may be an indication for customized orthotic support to enhance your chiropractic care. A thorough analysis will help determine what is appropriate.
Custom-made foot orthotics help to relieve the aches and discomfort from standing, walking or running. These thin devices correct misalignments in the foot and help support your spine. This improves your posture. It also helps to reduce stress on the joints and muscles of your legs, back and neck.
To create custom orthotics, we analyze the way you walk and assess how well your feet are functioning. Then we make a 3D impression of each foot and discuss the orthotic that will work best for you.
Orthotics are made to slip into shoes you already own, or if you prefer, you can order brand-name shoes with the orthotics built right in. To learn more about orthotics and how it may help you, please contact us here.
