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:
Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently.
Custom orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning and stabilizing the bones in your feet, restoring your natural walking pattern
Your foot is in contact with the ground for about .8 of a second when walking and about .25 seconds when running. Imagine trying to determine normal or abnormal foot function with the naked eye in a quarter of a second? This is too difficult for even the most experienced practitioner. The GaitScan system we use, records your timing sequences during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate. This enables us to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom made foot orthotics.
The TOG GaitScan™ System is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing your biomechanics. GaitScan™ has an industry high 4096 sensors and scans at an industry high 300Hz (scans per second). These measurements provide a sophisticated explanation of foot mechanics and assists with orthotic and/or shoe solutions.
