What are Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are flexible orthotics that you wear in your shoes. They are custom-made and specifically designed to each individual’s unique postural and weight bearing patterns to provide the proper support for all three arches of each of your feet, restore your body’s balance and improve your posture, alignment and total body wellness. By providing the proper support for your feet, Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers help create a balanced foundation for your body. Correcting problems in your feet has amazing benefits that may surprise you! Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers can help increase your strength, enhance your athletic performance and keep you feeling energized, even at the end of the day. They are available in many styles and features, depending on your needs and the type of shoes you wear.
How do Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers work?
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers help you maintain your body’s structural and functional balance. Your feet are your body’s foundation and serve you in three important ways:
- They support your body when you walk, stand, or run
- They help you move from one place to another
- They help protect your spine, bones, joints, and soft tissues from excessive shock and stress as you move.
Any imbalance, weakness or unstable positioning of your feet can create postural distortions that can cause ankle, knee, hip, lower back pain, neck pain and even headaches.
How can Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers help my back, hip, or neck pain? My feet don’t even hurt!
Your feet may not hurt, but they may be hurting your back! The joints and muscles of your body function most efficiently when they are in physical balance. The body is a bio-mechanical chain where abnormal movement of one joint can interfere with the proper movement of other joints. Your feet are your body’s foundation and if they are not properly supported, postural distortions could develop that place excessive stress on your spine and joints as shown below. These abnormal forces must be reduced and stabilized before long-term, improved spinal function can be achieved. Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers help correct these distortions and help you develop the strength and flexibility you need to keep your body stable as you stand, walk or run.

How will I know if I need Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
We use Foot Levelers’ Associate Platinum Scanner to assess each patient’s weight bearing pattern. The Associate Platinum Scanner is state-of-the-art technology that takes a digital scan of your feet and uses a pressure reading to evaluate how your feet are balancing your body’s weight. If your scan shows any imbalances, we can help you decide which type of stabilizers are best for you. Your scan will then be sent electronically to Foot Levelers, where your pair of Stabilizers will be custom-made to correct the imbalances found. Providing your feet with the proper support will help reduce the postural stresses that are placed on your spine, pelvis, joints and the rest of your body as a result of your imbalance and put you on the road to long-term, improved spinal health.

Why do I need Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers?
What’s wrong with those off-the-rack shoe
inserts that I’ve seen at the local drugstore?
No one else’s feet are exactly like yours. With Foot Levelers’ Associate Platinum scanner, each pair of stabilizers are custom-made to support all three arches of each of your feet, specifically designed to provide the proper structural support that you need and come with a one year warranty. Off-the-rack shoe inserts are mass produced, made from a generic mold and cannot provide the specific support that you and your feet need.
The Benefits of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers restore both your structural and functional balance and help you develop the strength and flexibility needed to keep your body stable as you stand, walk and run. Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers encourage optimal muscle and nerve function by guiding your feet through a more normal pattern of movement, eliminating excessive forces on the other joints of your body with each step that you take. Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are a great wellness tool that allows you to maintain your balance, posture, alignment and spinal health!
Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. Like any structure, your body’s foundation must be balanced to support the weight above it. If the arches in on or both of your feet collapse, your body doesn’t get the correct postural support, causing an imbalance in your skeletal frame.
If you have never had a scan, you probably don’t know what they are supposed to look like. Don’t wait for pain to tell you there is a problem.

Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress of the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by your chiropractor and can last well over a year in most cases. This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.
