Prescription orthotics are designed to control biomechanical imbalances in the lower extremity, especially the rear-foot.
When you are running or walking, the pressure on your feet can be 3-4 times your body weight. The American Podiatric Medical Association says that the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. That adds up to about 184,000 KM in a lifetime, or more than four times the circumference of the globe. That's a lot of walking with ill-fitting shoes or painful feet!
In some cases foot ailments can be an early signal of more serious medical problems like arthritis or diabetes.
Women have four times as many foot problems as men because they have a long history of wearing high heels and/or pointy-toed shoes.
Orthotics and proper shoe fit are very important aspects of foot health.
We use the most advanced technology -- Digital Gait and Pressure Analysis Systems -- for the evaluation of the foot dysfunction and the production of custom foot orthotics.
