Proper structure is crucial to health and can only exist when the foundations are solid. That's why we start with Sole Supports - a revolutionary orthotic that changes the way the foot functions on the ground - walking to better health.
Crucial Structural Support
Structural support from the ground up is crucial to your body's health. After reviewing the peer-reviewed literature from biomechanical studies, we found a huge benefit in modeling orthotics based on the MASS Posture Theory instead of the Neutral Position Theory. The results don't lie - thousands of people have benefited from these custom Sole Supports orthotics.

MASS Posture - The Biomechanics of Functional Control Part 1

So many people living in this country today have foundational issues with their feet, and don’t really know it. They may have low back pain, knee pain, ankle and foot pain, plantar fasciitis, Bunion formation, Morton’s Neuroma, Hallux Rigidus (aka stiff big toe), Metatarsalgia (aka ball of foot pain), but they have never considered how the arches in their feet may be contributing to or causing their problems.
The demands on your feet start young, and so should your care. Many common foot problems are thought to have a genetic component and your child’s feet play a crucial role in their development. Foot orthotics for children present a unique opportunity to control the growth and development of the foot.
A common complaint often overlooked for women during pregnancy is foot pain. Women adjust their pattern of walking during pregnancy to improve stability. However, studies in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association have shown that the changes in the way women walk during pregnancy have lasting effects and may not return to normal following birth.
Custom orthotics are a very effective tool for balancing as well as stabilizing the foundation of the human body. Dr. Aplin can even personally attest that wearing the custom orthotics that we use was the single most effective treatment in correcting what was causing his lifetime of knee pain and low back pain.
If you are looking for that edge in sports, consider this. Your feet are your interface with the ground and make up a complex system of bones and joints that are a major contributor to shock absorption and propulsion.
Investing in a solid foundation for your feet may be necessary for your individual health needs. However, choosing the right foundation is critical. Not all foot orthotics are the same. Most foot orthotics can help, at some level, maintain your condition. But, can they help correct the process that caused your condition? That is exactly what Dr. Aplin experienced when he changed from the typical flat orthotic to a truly custom Sole Supports orthotic. These orthotics act like a spring, encouraging you back into your most efficient posture. They are custom made, to the exact shape of your foot in the most corrective posture you can comfortably accept.
So, whether walking groceries back to your car, rock climbing, or running the ball back, correcting your foot posture is crucial to your knees, hips, and lower back. If you'd like more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at (256) 489-6605.
