Correct biomechanical problems and reduce pain, from the feet up
Orthotics are custom-made inserts for your shoes that are designed to support and improve the functioning of your feet. They correct and eliminate biomechanical problems arising from structural imbalances in the foot. An imbalance in the foot can result in ankle and knee pain, pelvic or hip pain, spinal pain and even headaches. Orthotics prevent foot misalignment, modify areas of weight-bearing within the foot, and are able to alter the way in which the bones move within their joints.
At Glenbourne Chiropractic Clinic, we use the Footmaxx Metascan system. We perform a computerized analysis of your gait, then use it to manufacture your custom foot orthotics, if deemed necessary by the doctor. During your evaluation we will look at how your gait is affecting your body as a whole and advise you on how to reach your personal goals.
Who can benefit from orthotics?:
- People with foot pain
- People who are on their feet all day
- People with knee, hip, or back pain
- People with tired legs, cramping, or poor posture
- Anyone who suffers from calluses or blisters
- Pregnant women
- People with a weight problem
- People with neurological complications as a result of diabetes
- People with arthritis
The Footmaxx Metascan offers 3D digital gait analysis. Using pressure mapping technology we can actually see underlying problems with your foot function and gait patterns invisible to the naked eye. By mapping the pressure data 150 times per second from heel contact to toe off, we can get to the source of the dysfunction and make that first step in your road to health.
Custom made orthotics are covered by most extended health care plans.
