Research has shown that 60 - 70% of people have abnormally functioning feet.

Structural problems in your feet can alter your walking pattern and cause pain throughout your body. We can evaluate structural problems and functional problems in your feet by palpation, simple functional examination, muscle tightness/length assessment in your feet and legs, and the way you walk (gait analysis) and determine if you are a candidate for prescription foot orthotics.

What are prescription foot orthotics?

Custom foot orthotics are devices worn in your shoes which provide correction and assistance to your feet, helping your feet function in a more efficient manner. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of pain which you are experiencing in your feet, knees, hip, or back (or even neck, shoulders, or arms). Prescription orthotics can help relieve your discomfort, by realigning and stabilizing the bones of your feet, in turn restoring your natural walking pattern.

1.Scanning of feet:

As you walk across the plate, thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure throughout the sole of your foot during this short time.

2.Mapping of foot pressure:

From your step, the computer will then display on the screen, 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure of all areas of contact under your feet.

3.Report printing:

This information is also summarized in an analysis report, which can be printed for you to see. The report findings will help us evaluate your foot function and determine if the symptoms which you are experiencing are related to faulty foot mechanics.

4.Determining the need for orthotic therapy:

This information will assist us to determine, combined with other information obtained from palpation, simple function examinations, etc., your need for orthotic therapy, and will aid the lab in manufacturing prescription orthotics to support your feet.
