Myofascial release (or MFR) is a clinical therapy that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by improving blood and lymphatic circulation, relaxing contracted muscles, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.

- Pain linked to Scoliosis
- Pre and post-natal massage

- Pain resulting from bad posture
- Chronic tension (headaches, shoulder and trap pain & tightness)
- Myofascial tension

- Identify asymmetries in the feet with Arch Height Mapping
- Illustrate how the feet impact the entire Kinetic Chain
- Generate foot assessments in under 60 seconds
In addition to these custom-made functional orthotics, Agape Chiropractic Clinic also offers custom-made footwear from Foot Levelers. We strongly believe in their products as they enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. Foot Levelers’ orthotics complement and enhances Agape Chiropractic Clinic’s treatments.
Most orthotic companies only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body. Functional orthotics support the three interconnected arches of your foot, called the plantar vault. The structural support for the entire body’s equilibrium is gained from your plantar vault.
Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Functional orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems — not just problems with your feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can maintain proper alignment of your spine and pelvis. Our Functional orthotics offer more than just short-term symptom relief. They also promote whole-body wellness for your life.
