Just like your teeth are exposed to everyday traumas and require routine dental checks to ensure they stay healthy, your spine is also exposed to everyday traumas and requires routine chiropractic checks to ensure it stays healthy. Traumas, be they physical, chemical or mental, be they sudden as in a bad lift or an accident, or be they slow as in sitting at a computer all day, all place stress and tension on your spine and surrounding muscles causing your muscles to contract and your joints to seize up irritating your nervous system. Sickness, lack of energy, stiffness, aches and pains are all signs that your nervous system isn’t functioning right.

An orthotic is a custom made device that is worn inside the shoe and is designed to align the foot and ankle in a better anatomical position to allow better stability and balance. Most people walk between five and ten thousand steps a day and that is a lot of stress going up the legs and in to the back. A small problem in the workings of the foot can lead to big problems in other areas as they try to compensate, so good foot movement is important to help keep pain at bay. With the recent upsurge in running it is important that runners understand that the pressure on feet during running can be three to four times body weight so it is important that they look at their shoes and observe for any unusual wear pattern and seek advice in regard to same to avoid picking up lower limb running related problems.
