Foot Function Affects the Whole Body: A weakness or poor structural alignment in the feet can cause stress or strain throughout the entire body.
Dr. Jodi Kennedy
Integrity Chiropractic is now offering the Barefoot Science Foot Strengthening System, an exercise program designed to promote quick, safe, healthy foot function in order to optimize overall physical comfort and performance.
“The feet are the foundation of the body,” says Dr. Jodi Kennedy, owner of Integrity Chiropractic. “A weakness or poor structural alignment in the feet can cause stress or strain throughout the entire body. We regularly check the health of the feet in all our patients who come in with head, neck and back complaints. Everything is connected.”
The system comes with a pair of insoles and a series of five to seven progressively firmer foot-strengthening inserts. Once patients have their inserts, Kennedy recommends that they roll a tennis ball under their bare feet for two to three minutes each day, with a firm-but-comfortable, continual motion. “This simple exercise helps to relax muscle tension and promote proper alignment and circulation to keep your feet healthy and happy,” she says.
