Your feet affect your entire body. If your feet are not level they can cause a misalignment and pressure in different parts of the body. These pressure points can lead to knee pain, back pain, shin splits, hip pain, and even neck pain. At Schneider Clinic P.C. we offer digital foot scan to see where your pressure points are. From there, we customize your Foot Levelers Orthotics to specifically treat your pain.
When a foot is severely pronated, or flat, it means that the arches in fallen or collapsed. Flat feet are unable to absorb as much shock, therefore making them a less stable foundation for bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons throughout the body.
The foundation of the body is our feet. Flat feet shift the body out of proper alignment, which may cuase aches and pains not only in your feet, but in other parts of your body as well. For example, flat feet also cause pain in the knees, hips, neck, spine, shins, achilles, and can even cause plantar fascitis.
Symmetry in our feet is extremely crucial for optaining optimal health throughout the body. When one arch is lower than this other, this creates asymmetry and biomechanical problems. As a result of uneven feet, the pelvis tends to drop slightly and causes the leg's support (the foot) to drop as well. As a result, the body may lean to one side or the other in order to "make up" for the imablance. The problem with this is that the muscles and tendons are now forced to work harder, but less efficiently.

When I first came to the office, I had migraines, PMS headaches and lower back pain all the time especially when I slept. My ribs had hurt me for a couple of years that it made it hard to breath. My heels hurt to walk for six or seven months. I also had stomach and bowel problems (colitis) for 20 years. I felt like I was having a nervous breakdown and didn't know what to do. A friend suggested that I try Dr. Schneider but I was scared. Once I began Activator treatments, the things began to change and I knew I wasn't going to get hurt. My medical doctor gave me pain pills..
My name is Marcie and at this time I am retired, but in the past I have worked in the medical field and also performed marionette shows for school children. Around twenty years ago I was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a drunk driver traveling at a high rate of speed. I was knocked unconscious and was sent to the hospital. At the hospital I was x-rayed and then sent home. A short time later I went back to the emergency room and this time I was admitted. My treatments at the hospital included traction and physical therapy but even after that I was still in so much pain...
I had headaches daily before coming to see Dr. Schneider. My wife Melba encouraged me to come in with her for her appointment to see Dr. Schneider. She had been seeing Dr. Schneider for her lower back pain and learned that Dr. Schneider can also help with headaches! Dr. Schneider recommended that I receive an adjustment of the spine to help my headaches. He also recommended that I start Decompression Therapy on my Neck to help treat my pain and discomfort. Other Doctors that I have been to for my headaches have only prescribed pain medication...
