Many of you would have seen the E-Flip thongs we stock in Chiropractic Central. E-Flip thongs are more than just some rubber you wear underneath your feet on a hot summer’s day. And unlike most rubber thongs on the market, including many that come from an exotic country with an even more exotic name, E-Flip thongs do more than just keep your feet off the hot bitumen as you leave the beach!
We all know, as fans of healthy spines and chiropractic care, that the joints and muscles of the body function most effectively when they are in balance. Our feet are the foundation of our body, however, the majority of adults have lost their lateral arch and have maintained only a semblance of their ridge. When we are upright, we place all of our body weight on our (relatively) small feet. This is a delicate balancing act for our nervous system and spine and requires a strong, but flexible foot structure to maintain ideal stability.
Traditional thongs are simply strips of flat rubber that provide no proper support. When worn for lengthy periods of time, especially during an Aussie summer, they can deteriorate your feet’s proper functioning.
The footbed of E-Flip thongs address 4 core qualities:
- Shock Absorption
- Adequate Sensory Afferentiation (Brain Mapping)
E-Flips assist with the alignment of the foot and body and control of the gait. They improve foot stability and are 3-4 times more durable that rubber and EVA compounds found in other similar footwear. E-Flips provide pronation and supination support through an in-built triple arc with rear foot control and dual action shock absorption. The triple arc also acts as an internal orthotic in the thong.
Best of all, to maintain your feet in ideal condition, E-Flips have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Throughout spring and summer, Chiropractic Central will be running a special on E-Flip thongs. Why not have you and your family sized for your E-Flips by Tara and myself?
