At The Manual Touch PT, we develop an individualized exercise plan for each patient that includes therapeutic exercises (functional rehab) and may include balance/vestibular rehab and spinal rehab. These exercises work synergistically with manual PT (described previously) to promote the integration of all involved body systems and optimize normal body function. We use the functional rehab treatment approach to evaluate the musculo-skeletal system in relation to the whole body.
Functional rehab consists of an individualized exercise plan that combines strengthening with proprioceptive stimulation (ability to know where you are in space) to promote improved mobility and stability.
The body moves in 3 planes of motion at any given time. If a particular plane of motion is lacking in a region of the body, this will then limit other regions from moving optimally. This type of rehab approach is based on the principles of Applied Functional Science that were developed by Gary Gray, PT, founder of the Gray Institute, Grayinstitute.com
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. “
