HealthSource is very pleased to announce their partnership with Mojo Feet to produce the best custom orthotic products available on the market. We found that the Mojo Feet philosophy had a strong synergy with the HealthSource Total Wellness approach to a pain-free, active, healthy lifestyle!
At MojoFeet, they use clinical and bioengineering expertise to focus on one thing – helping people move better. Their endeavors to improve human movement have led to the following observations and beliefs:
- Health begins, remains, and sustains with movement.
- We were ‘made to move’. Our bodies are designed to feel best when moving. That design was no mistake.
- We weren’t ‘made to move’ on concrete. Our environment is getting in the way of us moving often and moving well. We have covered our world in surfaces that are hard and uniform. We stuff our feet into shoes every day. We sit in chairs all day. We just don’t move.
- No treatment stands alone. There are just too many great treatment tools. We are one of them. Use them all.
A great custom orthotic starts with a casting position for the foot. The best position for casting the foot is the opposite of the deforming forces of gravity and body weight. It is a high energy, high-arched position of the foot. The goal of the casting position is to maximize the potential energy of the foot, and the goal of the orthotic is to control the movement from the starting position.
Rather than focus on specific bone positions they focus on maximizing the range through which the foot can function. This optimizes both the potential energy and the elastic energy of the system. Cast at high end of the functional range and control the foot through the low end of the range. This range is different for everyone and the boundary conditions for the system include the individual’s anatomy and the material properties (flexibility, rigidity, structure) of their foot.
What makes a good custom orthotic effective is its consideration of the individual. We are all different, we have different foot types, different body weights, and we are active in different ways.
So put a little spring back into your step… they call it ‘good foot mojo’!

A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.
Most chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients as well as to educate them on how they can account for their own health via exercise, ergonomics and other therapies to treat back pain.
Chiropractic is generally categorized as alternative medicine or complementary medicine.
Stillwater Chiropractors focus on the intimate relationship between the nervous system and spine, and hold true the following beliefs:
Biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the nervous system, and
for many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. Stillwater chiropractors also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function. Stillwater chiropractors also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
Chiropractic is well established in the U.S., Canada and Australia. It overlaps with other manual-therapy professions, including massage therapy, osteopathy, and physical therapy. Back and neck pain are the specialties of chiropractic but many Stillwater chiropractors treat ailments other than musculoskeletal issues. Most who seek Stillwater chiropractic care do so for low back pain.
Chiropractors emphasize the conservative management of the neuromusculoskeletal system without the use of medicines or surgery, with special emphasis on the spine. Back and neck pain are the specialties of chiropractic but many chiropractors treat ailments other than musculoskeletal issues.
