I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Darcy. I was having severe muscle spasms and had been receiving treatment from another chiropractor. A customer saw me in pain and recommended Dr. Darcy. She spent over an hour working with me on the first day. It wasn't long before I was back to normal. She also treated my knee which has a partial knee replacement.

Feet, the foundation of your spinal health
The feet are the foundation of the body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. Feet also help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from stress as you move. 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.
Understanding Your Feet
If you are considering individually designed Stabilizing Orthotics, our health care professionals can perform a foot scan to show you how imbalances in the feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders. The foot scan will show how Stabilizing Orthotics may help. Following a foot scan, a report will provide you a Pronation/Stability Index, a Foot Assessment, and a Body Assessment.
The index reveals the severity of pronation/stability in your feet, ranging from Optimal to Severe. An index of 102, for example, is Moderate pronation/instability. Untreated imbalances of any level may lead to chronic problems throughout your body.
The red areas on the V7+ scan show where your feet are applying pressure. Loss of arch height – which shows more red in the middle of the foot, such as the image shown – can cause flattening and rolling of the feet.
The scan also shows the percentage of imbalance for each foot. The higher number indicates greater instability on that side of the body.
