Plainly stated, by optimizing performance
from its origin, pain and discomfort is reduced. Optimizing foot
and structural configuration can reduce foot, knee, hip, back, neck and
even TMJ problems. Of great importance is the fact that we can also keep
these problems from developing or worsening with the passing of time.
We accomplish this by using custom foot orthotics that fit in your shoes
and balance your feet and your posture.
For more than 25 years we have dedicated our life's work to improving
the function of the human body by balancing the foundation that the body
rests upon - Your Feet. By leveling and balancing your feet, your
body achieves mechanical efficiency, reducing recurring musculoskeletal
discomfort and pain. The Center for Postural Correction has treated patients
for a variety of ailments related to a compromised foundation and posture.

Fitting Your Orthotics - What To
Instructions For the Use of Custom
If your shoes have a "sock liner" or insert, you may
remove it from your shoe. This will give you greater depth and a
more stable base in which to place your orthotic. If you wear a
heel lift, place it below your orthotic. (REMEMBER: Tie shoes work
best with our standard orthotic.)
When first wearing orthotics, they may feel lumpy. You should
wear your orthotics until first signs of discomfort; then remove
them, replace the liner of your shoe, and allow your feet to relax.
Repeat this process through out the day until they are comfortable.
This break in period can last 7-10 days on average. If by the end
of two weeks you are not wearing your orthotics comfortably, call
our office for an appointment. A slight alteration will be made
that will enable you to continue with the program. (If you are an
out-of-town client, you may return them by mail, with a description
of your complaint). Please always include your name, address
and telephone number.
Further correction - Our program is designed to
alter your orthotics over a period of 3-5 months. The first change
will occur about 4 weeks from picking up your orthotics. Five adjustments
are included with the price of your orthotic program within the first
year of purchase. All orthotic adjustments are made on an
appointment basis. Please call our office 5 days prior to needing
your appointment. If you are being treated by a physician,
they may advise you on the adjustments made to your orthotics. If
you are an out of-town client, you may return your orthotics for correction
by priority mail or UPS. Please include your name, address and telephone number along with any information you might deem important
as to your orthotic adjustment. Your orthotics will be adjusted
and sent back within 1-2 days using priority mail, unless other arrangements
have been made.
