Improve Your Health and Well BeingFind the Core Alignment Nature Intended & Live Pain-free
The human body is a truly amazing structure and holds within itself the very conditions conducive to it’s own well-being. Magic happens when we activate these conditions.

Rediscover Alignment Inspired By Nature
As the human body evolved, our feet adapted for critical endurance. We had to walk and run for survival.
It is as if the lower leg has “leg springs”. When activated, these springs are dome-like. They include the Achilles tendon, the tough plantar fascia and the spring ligaments on the bottom of the foot. Together, they give the foot enormous ability to mold itself to uneven surfaces. They also allow us to press forward with power. We can run, jump, leap and climb.
When healthy, the foot adapts to varied terrain by pronating. This arch flattening allows the foot to be like a bag of bones, flexible enough to adapt to any surface.
However, as we propel ourselves forward, the foot supinates. It becomes a rigid lever system. This lets us push off effectively. Every standing, walking, running human uses this to their advantage.
If the foot stays in a more pronated position, you are stuck. You literally cannot perform to best advantage.
Custom Orthotic Solutions has an answer for anyone wanting greater performance and endurance. Our MAGIC orthotics will capture the optimal arch within your foot. They help you feel and perform on the optimal arch nature intended.
Walking and running on flat levels surfaces cause the foot to be weak and collapse. The trend for minimal shoe wear, if not used properly, can make this worse.
Our Optimal Core Alignment exercises help you get the most out of our MAGIC orthotics. They are simple and effective.

The nervous system is an intricate mix of sensory receptors. They are in skin, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons. These receptors give vital feedback for accurate information. They tell us where we are and what our body is doing.
Optimal feedback provides optimal balance. But, when the structures that house these receptors collapse, the feedback is inaccurate. Poor balance and falls can result.
Fortunately, there is a way to reverse the problem. We need to regain optimal alignment. It’s about how we stand and move.
Tapping into what nature intended enhances feedback that is more accurate. That means vital adjustments for balance can take place.
Better alignment= better balance… one step at a time.
MAGIC orthotics. Take the next step and come see us for a physical therapy alignment assessment. Let’s see if we can improve your balance.
Our body is dependent on its circulatory system. We think of the heart as being at its center. But, the heart has a partner to help it. It’s located in the arch of the foot.
If optimally aligned when we move, this system works like magic. The pump thrusts 20-30 mL (2 tablespoons) of used blood in the leg back to the heart by the foot with each healthy step.
This efficient return of venous blood is enhanced by total contact orthotics. They stimulate muscles deep in the arch of the foot. They encourage fresh nutritious blood into working tissues.
Wearing shoes and walking on paved surfaces inhibits this function. Most modern day humans’ feet rarely attain full activation. That means we don’t get adequate venous emptying. Our bodies pay for it.
Good arch mechanics and proper use of foot muscles can improve circulation. It may even reduce lactic acid build up from poor venous return.

When we have core body strength, our arms and legs can work on a stable coordinated spine. This can help any athlete to perform to their maximal advantage.
A strong “core” means the body has the structural support to move the way our anatomy was designed. Just as the spine has its optimal alignment, so too does the foot have its dome-like core system.
When the spine and foot are in optimal alignment and functioning as nature intended… we get optimal performance.
Modern day life wearing shoes and walking on hard surfaces compromises performance. Foot support via total-contact orthotics stimulates the foot. This is essential for balanced muscle strength.
The orthotics partner with enhanced core awareness through Optimal Core Alignment training. The athlete has the kind of core stamina and strength they need to succeed in their game, one-step at a time.
Not a hard-core athlete? Whatever your lifestyle…optimal performance will enhance how you feel and move. Every day, every step will be more fun.
