Posture and Foot Levelers™
We are proud to provide custom fitted orthotic Foot Levelers for our patients. Many different disorders such as low back pain, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, and leg pain can be caused or worsened by simple postural abnormalities. Recent studies have even demonstrated custom fitted Foot Leveler orthotics to decrease chronic foot pain. At South Georgia Chiropractic, we often scan our patients to see how they are bearing weight, and if they can benefit from orthotic Foot Levelers.
Foot Levelers have been shown by current research to decrease certain pain syndromes, and the doctors at South Georgia Chiropractic are very well trained to identify whether or not they will be beneficial for you. By correcting postural imbalances, current research has also demonstrated that custom fitted orthotics result in an increase in athletic performance and, for all of the golfers out there, can add 10-15 yards to your drive!

"As an avid weightlifter, I enjoy getting in the gym and working out. For the past few months, I began to notice significant hip discomfort while lifting which decreased my ability to work out as hard as I wanted to. After mentioning this to Dr. Byrnes, he suggested scanning my feet to determine how I was bearing weight and if it could be contributing to my hip discomfort. After reviewing my postural abnormalities and my foot scan with me, he determined that I was a good candidate for custom fitted orthotics. Following the brief break in period with my orthotics, I started to wear them in the gym and noticed an immediate improvement! I am no longer experiencing any hip discomfort while lifting and am able to work out as long and as hard as my muscles will allow! I strongly recommend Foot Leveler orthotics for anyone looking to increase their performance in the gym if they are limited by pain."Nick McClellan
