When you’re told by your doctor that “we just have to manage your pain”, the cause of your pain eludes your doctor, or the problem is irreversible and there is no one to refer you to. Musculoskeletal pain is the number one reason for doctor’s office visits, and the reason millions of people believe they are stuck with no options but a life on antidepressants and pain killers.
Getting to the point of no options itself can be a traumatic experience. Specialists assessing your problem will seek solutions within their field of expertise, sometimes leading to unnecessary surgical procedures, steroid injections, drugs or appliances. Hopefully you have not yet been down that road.
Chronic pain is tricky and most times requires a broader approach than is readily available in today’s specialized medical practice. If you know where to look, you can find specialists that have the knowledge and time to find the root causes of your pain.
Most people, even most doctors wouldn’t associate something as mundane as insoles with the treatment of chronic pain. Insoles and orthotics are relegated to foot doctors and are thought of as limited in their capacity to handle anything but “fallen arches” and a need for extra comfort. The reason is the lack of familiarity with how body posture and mechanics are established and maintained. Most people are shocked to learn that their back pain originates from their feet.
Surprisingly even good athletes are not aware how important their feet are to strength, speed, agility and endurance. It is a fact that if your feet are not supporting your body, athletic or not, you will be using your muscles incorrectly and too much. You will suffer from joint misalignment from your feet to your jaw and every muscle in your body will ultimately be screaming for relief after months or years of continuous overuse.
If you’re about to rule out insoles it’s because the insoles you have seen so far are just standard arch supports, but that’s not what ProKinetics® Insoles are. They are indeed about beating chronic pain, but it’s more about stopping pain in it’s tracks before it becomes chronic and preventing it altogether by dynamically compensating for the flat environment we have created for ourselves.
