In addition to adjusting the spine and pelvis, we can adjust almost every other joint of the body. Not every chiropractor is trained to adjust extremities. This would include the jaw, ribs, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, fingers, hip, knee, ankle, foot, and toes.
problems can arise in the extremities that may need to be addressed to avoid chronic problems. Extremity adjusting can relieve pain and enhance the functions of the entire body. Athletes in particular find significant benefits. Dr. Chris is one of 1,300 Nationally Certified Extremity doctors and is the only one in North Dakota. He brings his additional education and expertise to the Venture Team.
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. They also 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. We offer Footlevelers orthotics. Dr. Chris will watch your gait, determine the needs to improve gait and reduce pain and make a custom mold.

Foot orthotics are used to decrease high-pressure areas in the feet and to stabilize your foot alignment. Custom orthotics do not change the anatomy of your foot, and function only when you are standing or walking on them. Custom orthotics are most commonly used to relieve symptoms of plantar fasciitis, metatarsal gia, neuromas, and many other foot and ankle injuries. They are highly recommended for individuals with diabetes, poor circulation, and arthritis. At Shephard Health, custom foot orthotics are used in conjunction with many of our wellness treatments, for total body care.
Foot orthotics are used to help people who suffer from back pain, pain in the hips or knees and arthritis-related pain. Your custom foot orthotics are tailored specifically for you, using a detailed analysis of the foot.
Custom orthotics help to restore the alignment and position of the bones, ligaments, and tendons in your feet and lower legs to ease pain and reduce stress on the feet.
