The Right Tool

If you have done any handy work around your house, you know that the right tools make a monumental difference both in the final result and the time it takes to get the work done. In the business of optimizing your patientís musculoskeletal health there has been a need for a new and innovative tool for decades.

The recent survey conducted by GRD BioTech, Inc. identified a couple of interesting points of view.

In the survey among chiropractors:

  • 87% attribute pelvic imbalances to hyperpronation.
  • Only 58% believe conventional orthotics reduce hyperpronation while standing.
  • Only 26% believe conventional orthotics reduce hyperpronation while walking and running.
  • We havenít surveyed other specialties like physical therapists, physiatrists, rheumatologists, osteopaths, massage therapists and other professionals who work with posture, but if the confidence in orthotics is equally low to that of chiropractors, the result may be that patientsí feet and postural foundation are frequently overlooked.

    We must reiterate. Posture Control Insolesô are not orthotics. The only commonality is that they fit in shoes.

    This tool involves inexpensive products and a process doctors and therapists can apply to their patients to effectively improve and manage posture. The result is more noticeable progress with patientsí treatment, especially patients with poor, forward leaning posture who historically have not responded well to musculoskeletal therapy.

    This tool offers the opportunity for the provider to more effectively address a majority of musculoskeletal issues ranging from knee and foot pain to back, shoulder, neck and bite problems. Regular patient management will be improved to the extent posture plays a role in the patientís natural ability to respond to the treatment.

    The following will fully describe the background and use of this tool.
