Newsletter: February is Foot Pain Month

This February, we’re focusing on foot pain treatment at RRCC.foot-pain

Did you know…

  • The human body has 26 bones and 3 arches in each foot.
  • By age 40, up to 80% of the population develops some degree of arch collapse.
  • When the foundation of the body starts to crumble, it can cause or contribute to foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.

The way we address this issue is with a detailed 3D BodyView foot scan of each foot.

This shows us if the feet have any trouble in the arches. If arch collapse is present, we prescribe Foot Levelers custom orthotics. The Foot Levelers laboratory takes 16 precise measurements of each scanned foot and designs individualized custom orthotics. These provide the correct support struggling arches need and are the foundation for less foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.

In our clinic, we follow the ASR treatment protocol.

  • A=Adjust. Adjustments can help foot pain because Dr. Kyle is specially trained to evaluate each of the 26 bones of the foot. If any bones are fixated or “stuck” we apply specific chiropractic adjustments to restore proper motion and alignment.
  • S=Support. We support the arches with Foot Levelers custom orthotics.
  • R=Rehab. Patients are often prescribed a Foot Wheel to reduce tight spots and trigger points in the bottoms of the feet. Dr. Kyle uses Graston Technique to loosen adhesions in the arches of the feet and Rock Tape to provide additional support as needed. The final “big gun” we use on many foot pain conditions is MLS laser therapy. This therapy is a game changer for painful feet as it reduces pain, decreases inflammation, and stimulates healing; all with one therapy.

Foot pain is common, but most cases can be treated utilizing the tools we have available at RRCC. We follow a no-nonsense, non-drug, non-surgical, research-backed approach and successfully treat 85-90% of common foot conditions.

If you’re dealing with foot pain, your answers likely can be found using our treatment approach. We are here to help you live life to the fullest, with the least amount of pain possible.
