When the medial arch becomes compromised, it causes a series of 'red-flags' to appear. The most obvious of these is a collapse of the ankle towards the inside. This is called 'pronation'. Pronation causes the knee to twist inward, the pelvis to drop and, the opposite should also drops.
As the body compensates for the distortion of the foundation, poor posture results. Over time, this distorted posture seems inescapable and, repetitive-stress soft-tissue injury accumulates - primarily in the areas of the major joints such as the knee, hip and low back.
In addition to the above factors, lifestyle factors are a key factor in arch compromise. For instance in cases of plantar fasciitis, excess body weight is a key factor. Coincidentally, it is also a key factor in accelerating the process of arch compromise. Custom orthotics by Foot Levelers Int'l, may help stop the pain and allow more freedom of motion.
With the proper stabilization, the postural distortions can steadily return to more normal function. Healing can take place which may relieve the pain - once thought to be inescapeable. As you regain freedom of movement, you may also find that your general energy level increases - allowing you to return to a more active lifestyle with less pain.

“I just had an appointment here and I can’t say enough praise. The chiropractor is amazing, and gave me more answers about my aches and pains then I have ever been able to get before. I left feeling like a brand new person, and that says a lot from how I usually feel. I highly highly recommend him. Can’t wait to try the acupuncture!!. '”
“I went to Okinawa Chiropractor Center today for my Piriformis muscle. It has been giving me problems for over 4 weeks. I was in so much pain I couldn’t sleep and pain meds didn’t help at all. Walking and sitting hurt so bad I thought nothing would help, but I was wrong. Doc Holliday worked his magic skills and I am feeling so much better. I am so sure in a few more visits I will feel back at 100 percent.”
“I had the most severe pain in my tailbone that lasted over a year. I could not sit or stand up without an intense overwhelming pain. After seeing several different doctors with no relief I finally booked an appointment here. Within one visit and a few adjustments the pain was completely gone! I am still in shock and extremely grateful.”
