1. The feet are the body’s foundation. Just like a building, fixing problems in the foundation can help with problems throughout the structure.
“…I have to load 5,000 pigs every 4 months. This entails many hours of walking on cement alleyways. I couldn’t help load without my Foot Levelers!” –Farmer Donita Koberg Platz of Minnesota
2. “Bad” feet are linked to bad backs—the research proves it. Fixing bad feet can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.
3. Your feet may feel just fine—but they could be causing problems up above. Foot imbalance or dysfunction is often “silent,” but it can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the low back.
4. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints; your orthotics should be too. Only custom orthotics can account for differences between your right and left foot, and can include accommodations for your specific feet, body and low back pain.
5. Custom orthotics are built just for you based on a highly detailed 3D scan of your feet. Performed by a skilled health professional, the scan is sent to Foot Levelers’ team of trained design technicians, who in turn create your 100% unique, tailored product.
Patient receives a 3D laser scan on Foot Levelers’ 3D BodyView. The highly detailed image becomes like an architectural drawing for our design team. They’ll use it to create the patient’s custom orthotics.
Don’t be fooled by the over-the-counter junk; these mass-produced, generic insoles can actually worsen your pain over time. Most cases of low back pain respond to conservative care like Chiropractic adjustments plus custom-made orthotics; no need for dangerous surgery or addictive drugs.
For lasting pain relief, improved biomechanics and health benefits that radiate throughout the body, choose custom orthotic support. Your feet, and your body, will thank you.
Here’s more from our awesome Dr. Kristina Petrocco-Napuli (“Dr. Kris”) who’s traveling through Australia lecturing on Chiropractic’s important role in women’s wellness. We’re honored to have such a wonderful doctor and educator on our team!

One word to describe this group….AMAZING! It was so wonderful to meet a group of Chiropractors on the same mission of patient centered care and leading the way in the profession. At this conference I met a variety of practitioners from around Australia as well as students from Macquarie University, Murdoch University and New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
Angelica Gaunt of Foot Levelers Australia, Dr. Lorenzo Campagna Current Sports Chiropractor NSW Chairman, Debbie Kelly-CCA and me!
The topic for my presentation at the conference was: The Female Athlete: Tweens, Teens and Young Adults. During the presentation one of the topics of interest was assisting the female athlete in understanding how to optimize training in correlation with her menstrual cycle and the impact it can have. In addition, the correlation of the biomechanics of the pelvis and conditions which effect the female patient.
The conference concluded very nicely with a gender balanced discussion panel of many speakers from the weekend related to sports Chiropractic practice….It was an incredible honor to be included.
A huge thank you to the CCA and Sports Chiropractic of Australia for including me as speaker!
As the conference ended it was now time for a walk to see some of the rest of Sydney….off to the Opera it was!
Stay tuned….. for tomorrow is a board lecture in Sydney!
We’re proud of our partner and speaker, Dr. Tim Maggs, who made the front cover of The American Chiropractor magazine this month (that’s him on the right, and that’s Foot Levelers’ V7+ 3D software on the laptop screen, which helps docs assess patients for possible foot imbalances). Inside, Dr. Maggs discusses his Concerned Parents of Young Athletes™ (CPOYA) Network, a partnership with Foot Levelers, which provides training, resources, networking opportunities and more for Chiropractors interested in working with middle and high school-aged athletes.
Dr. Maggs is passionate about changing the game when it comes to care for youth athletes…From one that simply treats/reacts to sports injuries to a prevention-focused model. Chiropractic should be at the forefront of this movement, he says, and he’s working with Foot Levelers to get the word out. We recently introduced the CPOYA custom orthotic to celebrate—you can check it out here.

WOW! So much going on here at Foot Levelers, we’re not even sure where to start!
First of all, we’ve kicked off a HUGE celebration of Chiropractic’s 121st Birthday (September 18th). We could not be more proud of this great profession and of the incredible doctors who are changing lives every day with their care. If you’re a Chiropractor and want to learn about some unbelievable “birthday” offers and more, call us: 800.553.4860.
What’s more, Foot Levelers just held its first Practice Accelerator Program in New York last week. This exclusive, invitation-only practice growth training brought together some of our most successful doctors to learn from renowned sports Chiropractor Dr. Tim Maggs. Dr. Maggs is the developer of the Structural Fingerprint Exam®, designed to prevent injuries in high school and middle school athletes, and the Concerned Parents of Young Athletes™ (CPOYA) Program, inspiration for Foot Levelers’ new CPOYA™ orthotic.
Here’s what one of our attendees had to say…
“This was a top-notch event for learning more on biomechanics and how we can help our patients more with what we currently have in our office. I was able to learn pearls from Dr. Maggs and apply them to my practice the next day. I have been wanting to work with more athletes… Dr. Maggs and Foot Levelers have given us the tools, data, and research with the CPOYA program. A sincere thank you to Foot Levelers and to Dr. Maggs for their ongoing support of the Chiropractic profession. I would recommend this program to a new graduate or a more seasoned doctor like myself alike. There is always more to learn to assist our patients, so we can become the ‘go-to’ doctors for preventing and treating injuries in athletes!”
—Dr. Susan C., Sandyston, NJ
