Custom Foot Orthotics

Our feet are the foundations to the rest of our body. Your feet have direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step. A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on your ankle, knees, hips and low back – causing pain and discomfort in these areas.

By using the most technologically advanced equipment, our gait specialists can identify improper foot mechanics and have customized and comfortable orthotics specifically designed to optimize your foot function and balance.

The Goal: to improve the biomechanics and reduce pain and injuries of the foot, ankle, knee, hip and low back

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When you are running, the pressure on your feet can be three or four times your body weight. Even walking can produce more pressure than the sum of your body weight.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says that the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. That adds up to about 115,000 miles in a lifetime or more than four times the circumference of the globe. That is a lot of walking with ill-fitting shoes or painful feet!! Orthotics can relieve the pain caused by improper footwear.

Our GaitScan™ System is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing the biomechanics of your gait, particularly how your feet align with the ground when you walk. GaitScan™ has an industry high 4096 sensors and scans at an industry high 300Hz (scans per second). These measurements provide us with a sophisticated explanation of foot mechanics and assists them with orthotic and/or shoe solutions.

Your biomechanical assessment will include static and dynamic weight bearing alignment in the lower extremity, inspection of shoe wear patterns and callus formation on your feet and muscle testing for length, strength and balance.
