Do you have flat feet, low back pain or plantar fasciitis? Custom orthotic insoles help alleviate foot pain by stabilizing imbalances to restore natural movement of the feet. Problems with foot biomechanics cause pain in the feet as well as other parts of the body. Pain can be minimized or alleviated with use of the appropriate orthotic inserts. Orthotics are not for everyone, but sometimes they are needed to help bring the subtalar joint back to neutral to help balance the rest of the body's movement. You remember the old song; The foot bone's connected to the: so on and so on. Just like a house that has a poor foundation, if your foundation is weak, then the rest of the body will be weak and prone to injury.
"When I think about my training and goals, the focus always lies on what can I be doing today to make my tomorrow better. I am always thinking of how I can get to the next level and maximize my fullest potential as an athlete. This way of thinking has allowed me to achieve many of my dreams and is a huge reason why I was able to find Mike Danenberg and his team at Performance Therapy. Active Release Therapy (A.R.T.) is a form of physical therapy using manual soft tissue release that has changed my life. Mike, who is a true healer, can make any one, of any age, of any ability level--optimized. He wants nothing more than to build relationships with people and help them move freely while feeling better than they were on their best day prior. Mike truly puts the art in A.R.T as his skills and mind for his craft are second to none. I feel literally "touched by an angel" each time I am in his office. I have no doubt that my running career will be given a new light because of his guidance. I am not only glad to call him my therapist. I am even prouder to call him my friend."
