Fluid Chiropractic uses Custom Orthotics – tailored to your life, your activities, your gait, your needs.
These orthotics are designed based on your foot flexibility, weight, 3 arch system and uses patented gait cycle technology. The orthotics are made to order using a 3D state of the art 3D laser imaging system. It is specifically designed for you. A spring effect is created when the orthotic in full contact with the arch of your foot during toe off and allows the foot to flatten but maintain optimum function during full weight bearing. It is washable and can be worn in water. For daily wear as well as exercise and comfort, the InMotion orthotic is the favorite. For intense athletic activities you might want XP3 or XP3+ for the added anti-microbial action, shock protection, light weight and elite performance. We offer aqua orthotics for pool exercises and water activities. And of course, our favorite are the shoes and flip flops with the orthotics built into the sole of the shoe. No more moving orthotics around or worrying about the look. These are effortless, beautiful and easy.
Do You Need Custom Orthotics?
In this cement jungle, everyone that stands on hard surfaces (warehouses, hospitals), exercises/walk a lot, bunions, hammer toes, achilles problems, knee pain, hip pain, lower back pain, previous injuries and any other dysfunction in their biomechanics needs orthotics. We often get asked if this is something patients can “just exercise to correct”. Honestly, no exercise will not solve these issue unless you do yoga 7-9 hours a day. Dr Jennifer had perfect feet during her yoga instructor training 9 hours/day for one week and then went back to work. In one week she lost all the changes. You can do exercises – but it’s not likely that you will have enough time or that you’ll choose to spend all of your free time working on your feet. Any exercises you do with custom orthotics will significantly improve lower extremity joint mechanics and reduce early wear and tear, osteoarthritis, in your joints. What about barefoot training? This is hot topic but in general a lot of stress fractures result from poor foot mechanics while wearing barefoot shoes especially on urban surfaces.
Have you wondered if orthotics are for you? If you have back pain, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain or foot pain, orthotics may be for you. What is the difference between custom-made and other types? Are my orthotics still effective? How long will they last? Are they water-proof? Can I get one pair of orthotics or do I have to get one for other shoes? What if I have a foot lift or heel lift? What if I get new shoes? What shoes can I wear with Orthotics? What if I gain/lose weight? What if I get pregnant? What if my son/daughter grows? Book your appointment today and we will answer your questions.

We will take your history, discuss your questions, assess your gait / posture / leg mechanics and most importantly, scan your feet with our 3D laser scanner. The 3D laser will give provide a report which we email you including: your pronation / stability index (severity), right to left balance, laser scan and the 3D model of your foot.
There is no charge for the 3D laser scanner. You can scan your feet any time, just ask us!
This appointment is requires 5 minutes to scan your feet and 15 minutes to go over your choices in orthotics.
At this visit we will fit your orthotics, re-check your gait, and provide you with exercises and stretches for increased function and support. Bring the shoes you plan on wearing with the orthotics to your fitting.
This appointment can be 15-30 minutes long if we need to trim the orthotics.

3D Laser Imaging:
We often get asked how our 3D laser scanner technology compares to scanners at shoe stores and pharmacies? Our technology is a 3D laser scanner that accurately evaluates the 3 arches of the foot. Other scanners are pressure scanners, not laser scanners, and simply look at how your foot presses on the scanner. These are not comparable.
We also get asked how these compare to podiatry-type orthotics which have the traditional arch support in the middle? Our custom orthotics are not podiatry-like. Podiatry-type orthotics lift the arch and support one phase of the gait cycle – mid-stance. Foot levelers supports the entire phase of the gait cycle from heel strike to toe off which allows the foot to move between the 3 arches and spread/contract at the correct time. Foot leveler’s orthotics are soft, flexible and customized to the length of your arches, height of your arches and all phases of the gait cycle. It is very different to a traditional podiatry-like orthotic. We have samples of orthotics, custom flip-flops and shoethotics in our office. Feel free to stop by and look at them by appointment.
Shipping and Construction:
The orthotics are constructed from raw materials when your order is placed, and then calibrated to your mechanics. Please wear loose clothing that can be pulled above your knees for the exam. Alternatively, we have gown shorts you may change into. Usually the construction takes 2-3 days and the shipping takes 2 business days. Expedited shipping is also available so we can get you the shoes and orthotics you need quickly.
Foot Levelers custom orthotics simply work. Our process results in the highest-quality, most comfortable customized orthotic on the market.
A Foot Levelers custom orthotic is individually designed for your feet – helping achieve a balanced foundation and stabilized pelvis. Our custom orthotics are handmade for your unique feet based on 3D scans or casts, and your doctor’s exam.
Only Foot Levelers customized orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the plantar vault. Since our orthotics are custom-made by hand from scans or casts of your feet, no two pairs of Foot Levelers custom orthotics are alike! The combination of 3-Arch Support, high quality technology and materials, and the uniqueness of each orthotic shaped and created to your feet results in an orthotic beyond what the competition can provide.
We strongly recommend getting multiple orthotics for both work and play.
Over-the-counter orthotics may initially cost less, but they only support one arch in your foot. When only one arch is being supported, it may not maintain the structure of your plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body. In fact, “over-supporting” just one arch of the foot may actually cause pain and symptoms, not relieve them.
Do you experience pain daily? Maybe you have plantar fasciitis or struggle with low back pain? Over-the-counter inserts may not provide the relief you need. Individually designed Foot Levelers custom orthotics with 3-arch support, however, can.
