Foot Pain With Sandals

March 8, 2013

Spring is right around the corner here in Aurora, IL and with that comes sandal weather.  But are sandals good for your feet?  The majority of the time the answer is no.  Most sandals, especially flip-flops, have no true arch support and can lead to foot and knee pain.  When the medial arch of the foot is not properly supported it begins to fall, or pronate, which puts pressure on the material across the foot.  As the foot flattens it also rotates the lower leg and puts rotational pressure on the knee.  Wearing sandals with poor support can lead to plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, shin splints, and knee pain.  Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL carries a line of orthotic sandals that provides the arch support that your foot needs while giving you a comfortable and fashionable alternative to your flip-flops.  They come in many styles and can be viewed at the Foot Levelers website.  If you are interested, call the office at 630-236-3090 and find out how orthotic sandals can help your foot pain.  Orthotics are covered by most insurance with little to no cost to the patient.  Call today to see if you have coverage.

Custom Foot Orthotics

December 3, 2010

Custom foot orthotics are very helpful for treating foot injuries like heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, bunions, cramping, and neuromas but they can also make a huge difference on other parts of the body.  Research has shown that when the arch of the foot drops it causes the foot to flatten, the lower leg to rotate, and the hip and pelvis to drop.  This change in the biomechanics of the foot and leg causes stress to be placed on the ankle, shin, knee, hip, and low back.  Therefore problem in the foot can cause issues such as chronic ankle sprains, shin splints, knee pain, sciatica, hip pain, and low back pain and can lead to premature degeneration of joints, causing arthritis.  Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic has been treating these issues for years using Foot Levelers custom-made foot orthotics.  The Foot Levelers’ system uses an advanced computer system that scans the foot in the standing position and identifies changes in the arches of the foot and builds an orthotic insert especially made to fit every drop and curve of your feet.  Orthotics can be made to fit into any shoe and even comes in sandals, flip flops, and shoes with the orthotic built into the bed of the foot wear.

What Your FEET Can Tell You about Your Spinal Health

Local Chiropractor Acquires New Digital Technology


December 8, 2009 – Dr. Collin Dolan is pleased to announce the addition of the Foot Levelers Associate™ Platinum to his practice. A tool that will allow him to make a digital scan of the feet, the Associate™ Platinum helps the doctor to screen for imbalances that contribute to problems in any number of places, like your knees, hips, and low back — even if your feet don’t hurt!

Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. Like any structure, your body’s foundation must be balanced to support the weight above it. If the arches in one or both of your feet collapse, your body doesn’t get the correct postural support, causing an imbalance in your skeletal frame. The Associate™ Platinum helps chiropractors develop care plans and use postural support, like custom-made orthotics from Foot Levelers, to obtain positive results in nearly everyone — from children to seniors.

Dr. Dolan welcomes new patients to Dolan Family Chiropractic for postural exams to determine their chiropractic needs. The clinic offers a variety of therapies for total body health and provides on-site screenings with the Associate™ Platinum at health fairs and other community events.

If you’ve never had your feet scanned, you probably don’t know what they are supposed to look like. Don’t wait for aches and pains to tell you there is a problem.  Call now to schedule a FREE consultation and exam with the doctor.  Most health insurances are accepted and many of them fully cover custom made foot orthotics at no cost to you!!!  Call to see if your insurance qualifies.

Call Dr. Dolan at 630-236-3090 now to schedule an appointment or check out our website at , and learn how your feet can affect your health!! Your entire body will thank you!  Dolan Family Chiropractic is located at 1137 N Eola Rd, Ste 111 in Aurora Il.  It is located at the corner of Eola Rd and Indian Trail/N Aurora Rd in the Jewel Shopping Center.
