Do you suffer from leg or knee pain? Do you have bunions or hammer toes, or suffer from localized foot pain? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then custom orthotics could be the solution for you. Custom orthotics can help to treat these, and other conditions—even hip, back, and neck pain. Custom orthotics look like simple insoles, but they in fact specialized devices that work to correct your foot imbalance. Orthotics work by improving your feet’s natural alignment, and reducing stress on your body.
The European Massage and Physiotherapy Center offers a free foot scan and gait analysis. Foot scans and gait analyses allow a physiotherapist to detect biomechanical abnormalities (abnormal foot function), typically corrected through creating custom orthotics for a client.
A foot scan involves a force platform linked to a software program. The patient is made to walk on the platform, which measures the way you stand and walk.
A gait analysis relies on observation. The patient is made to walk or run on a treadmill, which allows for an observation and analysis of your feet, ankles, knees and hips.
Both types of exams are unobtrusive and quick, and the staff at European Massage and Physiotherapy Center will help you determine the following steps if they identify any potential concerns during the evaluation.
