Orthotics & Foot Scan

Often, problems with your feet will present themselves as referred symptoms in your back, knees and neck. Remember the story/song "the foot bone's connected to the knee bone..."


Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle changes in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems such as:

  • Foot pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain

The results can also be transmitted to the Orthotic Group Laboratory in Canada; It's a bit like getting a pair of prescription glasses...but for your feet!

 

What Does the Gait Scan Tell You?
The Gait Scan will measure the pressure of your foot using a pressure matt. This information is then sent to a computer where analysis is performed to identify areas of abnormal pressure and your foot's loading patterns
