Custom Foot Orthotics and Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers
Dr. Corbin has a few options for Orthotics and Shoe Inserts, but his elite option for patients is a custom orthotic created by Foot Levelers. They are so special, they are called something different because they ARE something different. Foot Levelers' Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are shoe inserts that support all three arches in your feet. This then creates a stable foundation to build proper body posture. Foot Levelers have a saying that their Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are “Made for the feet, but designed for the body.”
Custom-made Foot Levelers are individualized to stabilize your spine and pelvis by correcting imbalances in your feet— the foundation of your skeletal system. These imbalances may occur even if you’re not experiencing foot pain. Though they may go unnoticed, these imbalances contribute to posture problems, pain in your feet, legs, knees and throughout your body, as well as fatigue.
Foot Leveler's custom design your stabilizers through an imaging process that we use in our office. First, you step onto a digital foot scan which captures an exact impression of your feet while you are standing, with your full weight on your feet. We discuss options with you to determine which style is best for you, and then the scan is immediately sent to the laboratory where the stabilizers are created to correct any imbalances found in the three arches of your feet. Your new inserts will be sent to our office and Dr. Corbin will show you how to wear and care for them.
Unique Just like you
Foot Levelers’ expert technicians analyze every individual digital foot scan that they receive. They use 16 precise measurements to create your custom-made Stabilizer which restores balance to the three arches of your feet.
Different styles and choices are available, including inserts for dress shoes, work boots, sandals, work out shoes and others.
Foundation of Your Body
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. And they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.
The foot is constructed with three arches which, when properly maintained, give exceptional supportive strength. These three arches form a supporting vault that distributes the weight of the entire body.
If there is compromise of one arch in the foot, the other arches must compensate and are subject to additional stresses, which usually leads to further compromise.
It’s a chain reaction.
Healthcare professionals know alleviating pain in one part of your body often requires treating a different part. The pain you feel in your neck could be caused by a misalignment in your spine that is caused by unbalanced positioning in your feet. See? It’s a chain reaction.
By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. Our orthotics complement your healthcare professional’s treatment when you stand, walk, and live your active life.
Orthotics can help more than you think
Your body is an interconnected system of specialized parts, and the support structure which holds everything together is made up of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Even if your feet don’t hurt, they may be contributing to your overall postural balance. Custom-made orthotics may help bring you long-term relief for the following conditions.

Should I buy orthotics directly from a company or store?
A. Foot Levelers sells products directly and exclusively to licensed health professionals. Their products are designed to work with the treatments/instruction provided by health professionals, like Dr. Corbin..
How long will my Foot Orthotic Last?
Like wearing eyeglasses, once a need for orthotic support is recognized, most people continue to benefit from wearing stabilizers. Also, your specific prescription for glasses may change to reflect the way your body changes over time. For this same reason, we recommend an annual re exam to confirm that your Foot Levelers are still providing the best support for you.
Does it take time to get used to orthotics?
Your feet need time to adjust to the correct biomechanical (walking) position. Orthotics should be gradually used to begin with. During the first 48 hours of use, use the orthotics for approximately 3-4 hours. After this period of time it is recommended you use the orthotics for 6-8 hours. In the second week of use the orthotics can be utilized all day.
