Gait Scan Orthotics
It’s important to understand that your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. A small abnormality in your foot function can have a large impact on the joints in your body, causing pain and discomfort. Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently. Prescription orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning and stabilizing the bones in your feet, restoring your natural walking pattern.
The Doctors use the Orthotic Group gait scan system to generate a computer image of the pressures generated by the foot while the patient is walking. It works by scanning your foot, mapping your foot pressure, and printing a report. The Doctors analyse this information and combine it with a physical exam to de-termine if orthotic therapy is required.
