Properly fitting Custom Orthotics

In the old days, if you wanted a pair of custom orthotics you stepped into a mold and a pair was made to complement the shape of your foot. This was a big help to many people. With today’s technology, we are able to electronically scan your feet as you stand to determine the pressure points, and then scan each foot as you walk to determine how the biomechanics of your foot support you in action. The layers of data collected during this process along with the doctors training and knowledge of your body structure will allow for the best custom fit. The orthotics are then molded from a variety of materials for the type of use you desire.

Gone are the days of one size (or shape) fits all. That isn’t to say that you can’t be perfectly happy with one pair of general use orthotics. There are options to have: dress, sport, running, diabetic, and many of life’s other activities supported with custom inserts made of specialized materials. Some of them will have up to three length options available and there are even shoes and SANDALS with the orthotic built into the bed of the footwear itself. No one need know you are wearing orthotics.

Gaitscan™ Technology

Your feet provide the foundation for your body. They are responsible for holding your body upright, absorbing shock, getting you around from place to place and giving you balance. As we age our feet become less able to provide a solid foundation. By the age of 40 most people have some sort of foot imbalance. Your sore feet may benefit from a custom orthotic that provides Proper Foot Support and Balance Improvement. Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness utilizes Gaitscan™ technology at our Minneapolis, MN clinic. This complimentary scan finds structural imbalance and weaknesses in your gait.
