Free Annual

Spring Feet Checkout

May and June 2012

 

During the months of May and June, Charschan Chiropractic and Sports Injury Associates with locations in North Brunswick and Scotch Plains NJ will be conducting free lower body biomechanical screenings for both adults and children in the community. Many people suffer from back, knee, leg and hip complaints.

Foot overpronation is the most common cause of back, knee and leg pain. Overpronation is simply feet that toe out, which may be combined with low or absent arches in the feet, making the leg function inefficiently. This will cause excess wear to the joints of the leg and secondarily affecting the lower and upper back, often resulting in back, shoulder and neck problems.

This condition, often overlooked when evaluating back problems and is passed on from generation to generation. Overpronation results in many adults and their children who suffering from leg pain when running or walking quickly, back pain, severe flexibility problems, Osgood-Schlatter’s disease, weak ankles, knee pain/damage and shin splints. Growing pains in these children tend to be worse because the muscles are tighter than normal and hurt more when their bones grow.

We are advising adults who suffer from lower leg or back problems to have their children’s feet checked during the Free Spring Feet Checkout. If an adult suffers from chronic lower back problems and has not had this looked at, this is a good opportunity for them to have themselves evaluated as well.

We will be offering sensible cost effective advice on how to deal with these issues for adults and their children. Our hope is for improved quality of life for all.
