The Wellness Center of the Outer Banks are proud to partner with Foot Levelers for all your custom orthotics needs.
The average person walks 110,000 miles in their lifetime. For those in more physical careers that number can be easily doubled.
A conclusive new study, “Shoe Orthotics for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Controlled Trial” published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation shows that Foot Levelers custom orthotics, particularly in combination with Chiropractic care, significantly reduce Low Back Pain (LBP).
“This study unequivocally confirms what we have known for over 65 years: Foot Levelers custom orthotics are a powerful first-line treatment in the battle against LBP (lower back pain),” says Kent S. Greenawalt, CEO of Foot Levelers, the world’s leading provider of custom-made functional orthotics and other therapeutic products. “There is significant scientific evidence that explains the foot-spine connection, but the bottom line is that using Foot Levelers to balance and support the feet — the foundation of the body — helps balance and support the spine. This study is another striking development in the case for evidence-based, conservative care of LBP, which in the face of America’s ongoing opioid crisis is more important news than ever.”
Foot Levelers customized orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the plantar vault. Innovations like the 3 Arch Support and high quality materials and scanning technology enable them to shape and craft orthotics to your individual feet. This is extremely effective in reducing low back pain and other forms of pain typically related to foot conditions (including plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bursitis, heel spurs, etc).
Foot Levelers guarantee on orthotics covers materials, workmanship, and your satisfaction. All orthotic inserts are guaranteed for 1 year and they are made at their headquarters in Roanoke, VA.
For nearly 70 years, Foot Levelers has been making custom orthotics that are clinically proven to help reduce pain and improve whole body wellness by balancing the body from the ground up. Your feet are your foundation. And structural imbalances in your feet can lead to issues throughout the body like:
- Plastic Deformation
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Low back pain
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Achilles Tendinitis
A foot scan or impression shows how imbalances in the feet lead to problems throughout your body. The orthotics are then made off your foot scan or impression.
Only Foot Levelers custom orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot. Your arches give the foot strength to support the body in a balanced fashion. Balancing your foundation can help relieve pain and avoid future issues. Ask us about getting scanned or download Foot Levelers Patient Catalog for more information.
Custom Orthotics Success Story
Kelley Andrews was living with pain and taking painkillers after multiple failed back surgeries. She finally found pain relief after discovering Foot Levelers custom orthotics. Watch her story below.
Multiple Activities? Multiple Orthotics.
If you have more than one pair of shoes and take part in multiple activities, you should seriously consider getting a pair of orthotics for each activity. There are orthotics for sports, work, and leisure. There are even orthotics custom made for children.
Here in the Outer Banks, many of us live in flip flops which do not typically offer any support for the foot or the back. Foot Levelers has this covered with Custom Flip Flops for built in support and comfort.
All of Foot Levelers hand-made flip-flops come with their patented 3 Arch Advantage which support all 3 arches of your foot.
They also include a high-quality mid-layer that provides shock absorption on heel-strike and is softer and more comfortable than over-the-counter flip-flops.
Additionally, Foot Levelers custom-fits the strap so each flip-flop feels like it’s made exclusively for your feet – because they are!
“It used to feel like I had two bags of concrete on my feet until I added my custom orthotics and now my feet feel great. I almost threw out a $250 pair of shoes because the insoles were compressed and they hurt my feet. I added these orthotics and they are a whole new shoe! I will soon be buying another pair and the custom flip flops because I can’t imagine wearing anything without these insoles.”
