We never fully appreciate our feet until an issue arises.
Whether you have pain or discomfort or trying to be proactive regarding the health of your feet, a full foot and gait evaluation can be beneficial. We look at the structure and shape of the foot, along with physical activities that you do, mileage, and if you spend standing, and what type of surface.
We also use a computerized gait analysis system that evaluations far more than the eye alone can detect. It shows precise movements of the feet, timing of the movements and how weight is being distributed throughout each foot.
All collected information is then used to build a customized shoe insert a.k.a an Orthotic. The customized orthotic helps guide and ‘re-educate’ the movement of the feet, and are built in such a way as to reduce ‘wear and tear’ on the muscles and joints of the feet along with strengthening them.
This information is gathered and along with your goals, we determine the best solution for foot care and alleviating complaints.
