I have made custom orthotics for over 33 years, but the latest biomechanical engineering is utilizing Advanced Materials to provide support and stability for better overall foot health and comfort with less expensive generic Orthotics.

The proper amount of fluid required varies depending upon a number of factors. The most common are climate, disease conditions including fever or fluid loss, and strenuous work and athletic activity.

MRI Technology can finally demonstrate the diffusion of water within your discs after a single adjustment to the spine. A 2014 study visualized gas, water and nutrient transport and aided in the removal of metabolic waste products that were associated with pain.

“Head in forward posture can add up to thirty pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine. This can pull the entire spine out of alignment. Forward head posture (FHP) may result in the loss of 30% of vital lung capacity. These breath-related effects are primarily due to the loss of the cervical lordosis, which blocks the action of the hyoid muscles, especially the inferior hyoid responsible for helping lift the first rib during inhalation.”
