You'd be surprised at the direct impact your feet can have 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, a subtle change in the way you walk causes a chain reaction that alters your posture and walking mechanics.
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include:
• Localised foot pain;
• Bunions or hammer toes;
• Arch/heel pain;
• Leg/knee pain;
• Hip or back pain – even neck pain.
Our ultra-scientific Gaitscan™ assessment system allows us to analyse your foot mechanics by measuring timing sequences, mapping foot pressure and providing an in-depth visual report that you can take home.
Using Gaitscan™, your Back In Motion physiotherapist can then determine whether faulty foot function is the cause of your discomfort and whether custom orthotics will benefit you. If so, the data is sent securely to the Gaitscan™ lab where it is analysed, and a custom orthotic moulded and manufactured specifically for you and your feet.
Prescription orthotics help re-balance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by restoring and enhancing your body's natural movements.
