Custom Sport and Fashion Orthotics and 3-D Printed Orthotics Center of Excellence

Wellness Biomechanics® is the study of the foot and postural segments in closed chain stance and function in health and disease. Dr Shavelson is the leader of the Wellness Biomechanics revolution.

Feet differ in their presentation. Wellness Biomechanics™ subgroups feet into Functional Foot Types® that serves as a starting platform to diagnosis, treatment and research of foot and posture biomechanics.

The goal of Wellness Biomechanics is to diagnose inherited functional lower extremity pathology in order to overcome the never ending force of gravity and prevent, reduce and eliminate foot and postural pain, suffering, deformity and degeneration as an integral part of the custom treatment plan of our patients.

Functional Foot Typing

Dr Shavelson has invented and U.S. Patented a new system foot typing system which profiles all feet into subgroups that possess specific areas of strength and weakness that generate a true custom plan for conservative and surgical care of your foot problems.

Performed on the initial consultation, foot typing revolutionizes biomechanics, custom orthotic casting and prescribing and the upgrading and improvement of shoe fit, lifestyle function, balance and quality of life and performance issues.

When your podiatry examination begins with a foot typing, you are getting true custom care, the best and most innovative foot orthotics, expanded and improved outcomes and foot surgery that maximizes the post op results for shoe fit, reduced deformity, increased function a pain free future.

Foot Centering Orthotics

All custom foot orthotics are designed to alter the forces acting on the plantar aspect of the foot decreasing the pathologic loading forces on the structural components of the foot and lower extremity during weightbearing reducing pathological tissue stress from building into painful complaints.

Foot Centering Orthotics are a new generation of custom foot orthotics that Dr Shavelson has U.S. Patented that in addition, alter the structure and posture of the foot when standing and moving about using a process called “Vaulting” that actually offsets the never ending deforming force of the Earth’s Gravity. This makes the foot and posture stronger and its muscle engines more trainable to the point that collapsing feet “grow” arches.
