If the fact that your patients will love you because they get well quicker is not sufficient reason, here is why: In a survey conducted in 2002 by GRD BioTech, Inc., over 90% of the chiropractors surveyed agreed that posture was important for their patients' general and musculoskeletal health. In the same survey a majority of chiropractors agreed that:
- Poor posture is a major factor in patients who do not respond well to chiropractic care.
- Improved patient posture causes adjustments to be more effective and last longer.
- A more erect posture aids the self-healing process of the body.
Dr. Janet Travell, who authored The Trigger Point Manual with Dr. Simons, lists poor posture among the most serious perpetuating factors standing between the patient and a life with less pain, increased mobility and better quality of life.
Posture Control Insoles« are intended for the 80-90% of your patients who have "Normal feet".

Recommending Posture Control Insoles« benefits your patients in many ways:
