Our team works hard to build the world’s best custom-made orthotics, but like our CEO is fond of saying, “If you wear out your body, where are you going to live?” That’s why Foot Levelers offers our employees an on-site gym, free access to a personal trainer twice a week, and free, 100% employer-covered health insurance. Today, we welcomed a team of masseuses from Daniel’s Institute of Massage for a little break-time R&R! Many thanks to these talented professionals and a big shout-out to Foot Levelers’ People Department for bringing them in!

Just a few pics of the team at DC2017, the 14th WFC Biennial Congress in the historic Washington Hilton, March 15th-18th. We were excited to meet with Chiropractors from all over the world plus learn about the latest and greatest in the profession. Speaking of latest and greatest (if we DO say so ourselves) — we showed off our new Kiosk!
For the first time, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), and the Association for Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) joined forces to present a world-class Chiropractic program featuring the latest in scientific research, global perspectives on the future of the profession, and inspirational sessions delivered by the profession’s thought leaders and content experts.

On March 14th at the National Press Club, our CEO Kent S. Greenawalt delivered opening remarks at the official launch event for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress‘s “Save Lives. Stop Opioid Abuse. Choose Chiropractic” campaign. Chiropractic, Kent argues, can lead the charge in reversing America’s ongoing opioid epidemic with its staggering implications on communities, families and the American healthcare system.

Greenawalt to Address Global Healthcare Leaders, Media in Washington D.C. This Week at the World Federation for Chiropractic’s (WFC) Biennial Congress. The Launching of a New F4CP Campaign — “Save Lives. Stop Opioid Abuse. Choose Chiropractic.” — May Be “The Most Significant Meeting in the History of the Profession”
Foot Levelers’ Chairman and CEO Kent S. Greenawalt will deliver opening remarks on behalf of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) on March 14th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. next week. Greenawalt, who is also the founder and Chairman of the Foundation, will speak on a topic that could not be more urgent or relevant today: the opioid epidemic in America, an ongoing tragedy with staggering implications on communities, families and the American healthcare system. Chiropractic, Greenawalt says, can lead the charge in reversing the horrifying trend.
Nearly 30,000 Americans died from opioid overdose in 2014, a number that has tripled since 2000. For comparison, about 5,000 die annually from cocaine overdose. “The pharmaceutical industry, physicians and other prescribers, hospitals, and the FDA are all to blame,” wrote one author, a physician on the front lines, in a New York Daily News article exploring the problem last year.
The Foundation’s “Save Lives. Stop Opioid Abuse. Choose Chiropractic” campaign aims to “touch every consumer in the U.S. with our message that Chiropractic is a safer strategy than opioids.” It follows a positioning paper the Foundation released last year, “Chiropractic: A Safer Strategy Than Opioids.”
The Foundation is asking for “5,000 doctors of chiropractic to contribute $200 each to support the efforts of ‘Save Lives. Stop Opioid Abuse. Choose Chiropractic.’ Those that want to contribute more can add others names – children, assistant(s), significant others and in honor of deceased family members – for an additional contribution.”

Did you know? More women than ever before are joining the Chiropractic profession. In fact, in a field that was once almost completely male-dominated, some of today’s Chiropractic graduating classes are nearly a 50-50 male/female split.
On this International Women’s Day, Foot Levelers honors women the world over, with a special nod to those women Chiropractors who have dedicated their careers to helping patients lead healthier, happier lives. Here are just a FEW of the women DCs who have, or are, shaping the profession, many of whom we’re proud to call “partner.”
