Getting help for Pronation/Flat Feet

Foot, ankle, knee, hip and low back issues may have a causation element in the foot 🦶. In this blog we discuss what we use at Errol Street Chiropractic when we are assessing foot arches. We use a Foot Leveler 3D digital scanner to assess if and how much dropped arches are present.

How do flat feet affect the ankle, knee and lower back?

Dropped arches, also referred to as pronation, places strain in the foot, ankle, knee and so on, all the way up the kinetic chain. The feet are our foundations, just as a house has its foundations. When the foundations are not balanced, then everything that sits on top of it 

What can Pronation lead to?

The 3 foot arches helps to give your feet the balance, support and spring that you need to enjoy and perform daily activities. Whether you are standing all day, exercising or playing sport. Flat feet can lead to:

  • inflamed feet 
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Knee aches
  • Hip discomfort

How can we help?

At Errol Street Chiropractic we understand that balance is not only needed in the spine for optimal function and movement, but also in your FEET!We assess the arches in feet with a 3D digital foot scanner from Foot Levelers.

Once the arches are assessed and we find an imbalance, we have an option of ordering custom made orthotics that the Foot Levelers laboratory makes, according to the 3D digital scan results.

If you need your feet arches accessed then we can help by Assessing FOOT Arches with Foot Leveler 3D Scanner. Give us a call on 9329 1118.00
