For people to remain in balance, multiple systems of the human body have to work together. If one of the those systems doesn’t function well, balance issues can ensue, leading to a fall.
At The Manual Touch PT, patients will be evaluated to learn the location (s) and causes (s) of the balance deficit. Systems that are involved: vestibular system or inner ear, hip and core weakness, loss of vibratory sense in the lower legs, loss of propriocetive sense in the hips, knees, or more often the ankles, the nervous system, and vision.
Patients with vertigo issues will be evaluated to determine the cause of the vertigo whether in the inner ear or from the brain, with integration of the visual system.
Patients receive the appropriate manual physical therapy as well as an individualized exercise program to promote the integration of all systems involved in order to decrease and ultimately abolish the symptoms.
Correct Toes is a silicone toe spacer which allows the toes to spread to its natural position, facilitating the foot to make full contact with the ground. This promotes good proprioception (knowing where the body is in space) and improved balance for all patient populations, whether you are an athlete or a senior. Correct Toes come in 3 different sizes and the silicone material allow for easy modifications to better fit your feet. Correct Toes can be worn while sleeping or they work best while walking or even running to promote better use of feet muscles. Conditions that can be helped: bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, neuromas, knee pain, foot pain.
Current patients: $45
Non-patients: $65 includes a brief fitting and modification as needed

A 72 year old woman writes: “Painful big toes, sore bunions, burning feet all the time. After using correct toe inserts for maybe two or three hours for two days, the burning on the bottom of my feet was gone and I no longer had bunion and big toe pain. Just try them out and you will see how nice it is to be pain free. “
