Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related to walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are really for anyone with an issue or discomfort relating to walking or imbalances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized during most activities to take further stress off the body.
Orthotics can often be prescribed by your chiropractor and can last well over a year in most cases. This is a great investment into your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.

Insight Subluxation Station
Your body can be malfunctioning for months, even years before you experience any symptioms. Since symptoms are always the last to show and the first to go, it is important to monitor the function of the nervous system which is why Dr Youngblood utilizes the Insight Station.
His purpose for administering these tests is to detect and pinpoint abnormal function in the spine which cannot be seen on X-ray. Abnormal spinal function causes abnormal nervous system disturbance. These tests are completely non-invasive utilizing no needles, electrical shock, or heat.
Five technologies of the Insight Station:
Rolling Thermal Scanner
The thermal scan is used to asses the part of your nervous system that controls your organs, glands, and blood vessles. This is called your autonomic nervous system. This test will give the doctor a snap shot of how your autonomic system is working and how it is responding to care.
This test measures the sensitivity of various locations to pressure to build a comprehensive map of the pattern of pain along your spine.
This test shows the pattern of how energy is ditributed through your muscles identifying areas of abnormal tension and stress.
Pulse Wave Profiler
The pulse wave profiler helps Dr. Youngblood determine your heart’s overall ability to adapt to the environment by looking at the timing of your pulse also know as heart rate variability.
The dual inclinometer measures the range of motion or the amount of movement in regions of your spine.
The Insight Subluxation Station is the only technology of its kind certified by the Space Foundation.
