The chiropractor may advise the patient on orthotic therapy following a comprehensive gait analysis. Many gait abnormalities result in improper biomechanics, which translate into pain.
The patient will be provided with custom-made orthotics. A cast will be taken of the patient's feet using foam or plaster and then sent to a laboratory to be customized.
Did you know that many medical conditions first exhibit their symptoms in the feet? Did you know that if you suffer from a biomechanical
gait abnormality, that the alignment of your entire body is off and many problems can result such as foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain,
leg pain, hip pain and even back pain?
Orthotics are customized insoles worn in any type of shoe and they correct the way a patient walks. If a patient is walking incorrectly, their entire body can be out of alignment causing all types of problems including foot, ankle, leg, hip, and lower back pain.
Our Footmaxx Computerized System analyzes the way you walk, by scanning the bottom of your foot while you step across the pressure mat. Our doctor uses the information displayed on the Footmaxx proprietary software to assist in a diagnosis. Our doctor can provide you with a pre-determination of need by ordering a Gait and Pressure Analysis Report. The report presents clinical analysis, statements, summaries and conclusions concerning your foot function.
