Cutting Edge Modalites

Foot Levelers orthotics are “made for the feet, but designed for the body.” They correct imbalances in the feet in order to help the biomechanics and function of the whole kinetic chain, from the joints in your feet to your knees, hips, pelvis, and spine. With shock absorption built in, they are comfortable during any activity. With strength and flexibility, they allow the joints of your foot and ankle to move properly for maximum biomechanical advantage. The variety of styles offered by Foot Levelers makes these custom orthotics equally useful in a wide variety of footwear, from dress shoes and clogs, to running shoes and cleats.

Most importantly, Foot Levelers custom orthotics are made specifically for YOU! A digital scan of your feet while you are standing captures a precise image of your foot, from which 16 precise measurements and your particular weight distribution patterns are taken. This information is combined with your doctor’s observations regarding your symptom patterns, biomechanics, and gait, as well as your lower leg, foot, and ankle alignment. Foot Levelers then makes corrections for your feet based on this data. The result is a truly custom orthotic that gives you 100% correction for what is wrong with your feet. What this means for you is a comfortable, durable, pair of orthotics that will eliminate biomechanically related symptoms and protect your joints during any activity.

Key points regarding Foot Levelers custom orthotics:

  • 16 precise measurements are taken of each foot while weight bearing and orthotics are made to correct the imbalances demonstrated by these measurements instead of casting a foot non-weight bearing and assuming that however the foot happens to be shaped in that position is an ideal correction.
  • Foot Levelers orthotics are flexible, durable, and comfortable with shock absorption built in. Compare these features to hard, inflexible orthotics that feel like hard, inflexible orthotics when you try to stand or run in them. Why would that be a good idea?
  • Only Foot Levelers orthotics provide support to all three arches of the foot, thereby providing maximal biomechanical advantage while protecting the joints of the forefoot and outside of the foot, instead of only protecting the inside arch of the foot.
  • Foot Levelers orthotics are not designed to only help the feet. Taking into account a variety of factors, they are designed to promote a healthy, natural alignment of the skeletal structures from your feet to your spine.
  • Your lifestyle, age, weight, activity level, and condition are also considered when we create your custom-made orthotics. For more information please visit

Cold Laser or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Cold laser therapy is used to speed the recovery of damaged tissues. The particular laser utilized at Pro Active Chiropractic is the ML-830. The ML-830 is the first patented cold laser device. Research has proven the wavelength of 830 nanometers and power output of 30 milliwatts per diode (3) to be the most effective wavelength and power output for effecting a variety of positive changes in injured tissues. Other lasers on the market are sharp on appearance and low on effect. They often have wavelengths of 632 nanometers and power output of 5 milliwatts which are the same parameters for laser pointers (yes, laser pointers).

Research has demonstrated why 830nm wavelengths and 30 milliwatts of power per diode are the most clinically effective laser settings:

  • Penetration – lasers at 830 nm wavelengths penetrate tissues to a depth of 4+ cm versus a maximal depth of 1cm for 632 nm wavelengths.
  • ATP or cellular energy production – At 830 nm wavelengths, cellular ATP production is stimulated maximally in the affected tissues versus no ATP stimulation at 632nm
  • Endorphin production – significant increases in plasma endorphin production is achieved with 830nm and 30mw of power, whereas lower doses of photon energy do not show any significant increases.

The positive biological effects of Cold Laser therapy or LLLT include:

  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Stimulated cell growth
  • Cell regeneration
  • Increased tissue activity
  • Anti–inflammatory
  • Edema reduction
  • Reduced fibrous tissue formation
  • Stimulated nerve function
  • Collagen deposition
