FOOT SCANNING

The Foot/Spine Connection

Have you ever had your feet scanned? Do know what your feet can tell you about your spinal health? You should have your feet regularly scanned for imbalances that could be the cause of pain in your neck, back, hips, or knees. With the most advanced technology, our digital foot scanner allows us to check your feet for problems that could transfer to other areas in your body.

Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. Like any structure, your body’s foundation must be stable to support the weight above it. If the arches in one or both of your feet collapse, your body doesn’t get the correct postural support, causing an imbalance in your skeletal frame. Every time your foot hits the ground to take a step, you pass the imbalance all the way up your body. Over time, your body tries to compensate and this imbalance can cause pain in any number of places, like your knees, hips, and low back even if your feet don’t hurt!

The best part about getting your feet scanned is that you can see the imbalances! The digital scanner creates a colorized image of your foot that shows the weight distribution on your three arches and areas of asymmetry on both of your feet. If you’ve never had your feet scanned, you probably don’t know what they are supposed to look like. We also thought of that, which is why our scanner provides a balanced, symmetrical foot scan for you to compare with.

How can a problem in my feet contribute to pain in my neck?

A. Your spine is one link in a “chain,” with your feet as the base. Lack of stability in the pedal foundation can lead to distortions and a muscular stretching all the way up the spine. With foot pronation and the associated collapse of the arches in one or both of your feet, the base point of your body’s center of gravity shifts forward. This causes other parts of your body to try and compensate for this shift. Eventually, the head attempts to maintain its position over the vertical center of gravity, and therefore slides into anterior translation (movement straight forward). This can lead to pain and/or stiffness over time. The body’s overall stabilization efficiency is greatly reduced, and it must work harder to maintain a standing posture. Our treatment protocol is designed to help stabilize your body by getting your feet back into correct position.

85% of our clients have no perceived pain in their feet, but about the same number have excessive pronation in their feet. This condition causes them to be out of alignment and makes them have pain throughout their spine.

Even if your feet don’t hurt, they may be a major factor contributing to your health problems. Spinal-pelvic misalignment is the culprit. Pain in various parts of your body may be traced directly to your feet! You may not be as fortunate as you think. A foot problem may be the cause of discomfort or pain in your leg/hip, back, arm/shoulder or even your neck!

Our digital foot scanner helps us evaluate your postural health together with our computerised postural and spinal scans. After you are scanned, the scanner creates a digital image of your feet, that shows weight distribution on each foot, This indicates imbalances or weaknesses.

My feet don’t hurt why should I get them scanned?

We believe that knowledge about your body is very important and we therefore begin with an in depth consultation which includes:

Your foot bones are connected to your spine bone! Seriously, you may not realize it, but your body is a large kinetic chain. All of its parts are interconnected with one part affecting another. Weaknesses or imbalances in your feet can affect other areas of your body, like your knees, hips, and spine. When you stand walk or run, your body is subjected to natural forces and postures that can cause stress and strain up your body’s kinetic chain. Your feet are the foundation of your entire body. When they are not in proper alignment, your feet can’t give your body the support it needs.
