skeleton imageYour feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. And they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.

The foot is constructed with three arches which, when properly maintained, give exceptional supportive strength. These three arches form a supporting vault that distributes the weight of the entire body.

If there is compromise of one arch in the foot, the other arches must compensate and are subject to additional stresses, which usually leads to further compromise.

It’s a chain reaction.

Healthcare professionals know alleviating pain in one part of your body often requires treating a different part. The pain you feel in your neck could be caused by a misalignment in your spine that is caused by unbalanced positioning in your feet. See? It’s a chain reaction.

By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. Our orthotics complement your healthcare professionals treatment when you stand, walk, and live your active life.

What Makes Foot Levelers Different

Why We’re Different
Foot Levelers orthotics are not ordinary orthotics. In fact, they are named something different because they are something different.

What are Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
Our Stabilizers are shoe inserts that support all three arches in your feet thereby creating a stable foundation upon which to build proper body posture. Each is custom-made to stabilize your spine and pelvis by correcting the specific imbalances in your feet.

It’s Not Just About Foot Pain
You don’t have to experience foot pain to be prescribed Stabilizers. In fact, imbalances may occur even if your feet feel fine. Before you know it, you’re suffering from pain and fatigue in other areas of the body, often due to postural misalignment that results from imbalances in your feet.

The Process

At Foot Levelers, we custom design our Stabilizers through an imaging process using the Associate Platinum Posture Scanner.

  1. Dr. Murphy will get an exact impression of your feet, using a digital foot scanner.
  2. Together you will then determine which Stabilizers are right for you, based on the results of the scan. A variety of styles are available for all activity levels and shoe styles.
  3. The digital scan is sent to the Foot Levelers laboratory.
  4. Skilled technicians build your custom-made Stabilizers using 16 precise measurements based on their analysis of your feet. Your lifestyle, age, weight and activity level are all considered when we create your custom-made Stabilizers.
  5. The Stabilizers are sent back to Dr. Murphy, who will show you how to wear and care for them.
    Foot Levelers’ custom-made Stabilizers help promote a healthy, natural, skeletal alignment for total body health.


Q. Who is Foot Levellers

A. Foot Levelers, Inc. create custom made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers, Sandalthotics® and Shoethotics® which are scientifically designed for the individual’s unique postural problems. A Spinal Pelvic Stabilizer is inserted into a shoe or boot. A Sandalthotic is a sandal with a custom-made orthotic built right in. A Shoethotic is a custom-made orthotic and shoe combination. The products are called “spinal pelvic stabilizers” because that’s what they do- help stabilize the spine and pelvic area by balancing the feet. They make many different styles of stabilizers, each of which is distinguished by its unique features. Ask the doctor which Stabilizer is right for you.

Q. Should I take my stabilizers along when I buy new shoes?

A. Yes, if the shoes are appropriate for that style of stabilizer. Foot Levelers are most effective when used in shoes with good construction, fit, and condition. Your stabilizers are also a guide in assuring new shoes fit well. If a shoe can’t accommodate a stabilizer which has been custom made for your foot, then that shoe is not the proper size for you.

Q. Do my stabilizers require special care?

A. Your stabilizers represent an investment in your good health and should be treated accordingly. It is advisable to remove them from your shoes at night, especially if your feet perspire excessively, or if your footwear gets wet. Let them and your shoes dry completely before wearing them again. Surface dirt can be removed with a damp cloth as needed. Make sure to dry the surface thoroughly, even on moisture-resistant styles. Dot fasteners, especially, must be kept free of dirt and debris for maximum effectiveness.

Q. How long can I expect to wear my Foot Levelers?

A. Like wearing eyeglasses, once a need for orthotic support is recognized, most people continue to benefit from wearing stabilizers. Also, your specific prescription for glasses may change to reflect the way your body changes over time. For this same reason, we recommend an annual re-exam to confirm that your Foot Levelers are still providing the best support for you.

Q. What should I do if the stabilizers hurt my feet?

A. Some people experience a mild discomfort during the initial break-in. Break-in time can take up to two weeks in some cases, but usually much less time for most people. If your feet are uncomfortable, remove the orthotics for about half an hour, then re-insert. The golf ball exercise is a simple way to speed the adaptation process. Sit with a golf ball under your bare foot. Roll the ball with as much pressure as is comfortable from the front of your foot to the back, and along the arches and outer edges. Do this for up to five minutes per foot, twice a day, to speed adaptation.

Q. Is my stabilizer too wide? It’s a snug fit going into my shoe.

A. For a couple of days, new stabilizers may exhibit some resistance on placement and removal. With use, they take on a slightly concave shape and mold to the shoes. After several days they can be easily slipped in and out of the shoes.

Q. How can a problem in my feet contribute to pain in my neck?

A. Your spine is one link in a “chain,” with your feet as the base. Lack of stability in the pedal foundation can lead to distortions and muscular stretching all the way up the spine. With foot pronation and the associated collapse of the arches in one or both of your feet, the base point of your body’s center of gravity shifts forward. This causes other parts of your body to try and compensate for this shift. Eventually, the head attempts to maintain its position over the vertical center of gravity, and therefore slides into anterior translation (movement straight forward). This can lead to pain and/or stiffness over time. The body’s overall stabilization efficiency is greatly reduced, and it must work harder to maintain a standing posture. The Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers work with the doctor’s treatments, adjustments, etc. to help stabilize your body by getting your feet back into correct position.
