Understand Your Feet El Paso, Texas

You need to understand your feet! Flat feet, foot pronation, and foot imbalances can lead to all kinds of pain:

  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Back pain
  • Yes even Shoulder pain

If you are considering custom orthotics, a health care professional such as Doctor Jimenez and Injury Medical Chiropractic Clinic can perform a foot scan to show you what imbalances in the feet can lead to. The foot scan will show how the orthotics can help. Following the foot scan, a report will provide the caregiver a Pronation/Stability Index, Foot Assessment, and Body Assessment.


Pronation & Stability

The Pronation/Stability Index™ score appears on the clinical report that is produced when your feet are scanned by our 3D machine.

The Pronation/Stability Index™ is an algorithm based on 16 different measurements. Taken from a laser scan of the feet, the index indicates the amount of arch collapse. The higher the number, the more collapse.

The index reveals the severity of pronation/stability of your feet, which can be anywhere from optimal to severe. An index of 102, for example, is a moderate pronation/instability. Untreated imbalances at any level can lead to chronic problems.


Optimal Feet

This image shows what the optimal foot looks like.

The red areas represent where pressure on your foot should be:

  • The toes
  • The balls of the foot
  • The heel

Unfortunately, 99% of feet do not look like this.


Flat Feet

This image shows what flat feet look like. Here, all three arches of the foot have collapsed. Once the arches collapse it throws the rest of the body off. So when you move there is a higher risk for pain. This includes pain in the feet, knees, hips, back, and neck.


The Body


The body image shows imbalances in the feet and how they can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt and shoulder drop.

These instabilities can lead to:

A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis, and shoulders. With custom orthotics, imbalances and conditions caused by those imbalances are gone.


Feet Support

Throughout our lives, we need some type of support for our feet. After all, they take all of our weight, so let’s treat them right and understand your feet.
