Orthotics

An orthotic service using the latest technology (Gaitscan®).

Have you ever suffered from ‘shin-soreness’, pain on the inside of the knee, or ‘foot-arch’ pain?

Conditions such as ‘shin splints’, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendon pain are some of the conditions that can be successfully treated following proper assessment and correction of foot posture. A Physiotherapist or Podiatrist using Gaitscan® technology can quickly and accurately assess the biomechanical problems of your feet.

The Gaitscan® approach utilizes a dynamic force plate which comfortably presents a computer image of what is happening at ground level with respect to gait timing and pressure distribution. Any corrective device or orthotic that may be needed can be custom designed from this data. Gaitscan® gives an accurate and measured prescription compared to prior approaches. It allows for a more streamlined and lightweight device that can be worn in most footwear.  Our Physiotherapists are trained in the use of Gaitscan ®. Please call the Clinic for an assessment.
