Computer gait analysis allows our podiatrists to detect biomechanical faults and flaws in your walking or running. The good news is custom orthotics can be successfully used to help correct a lot of these faults. Custom orthotics improve foot function by reducing foot pronation to normal levels. This in turn improves lower leg alignment, stability and gait. Through this method orthotics can then help treat a number of lower leg and foot problems including foot, ankle, shin, knee, hip and even back pain.and can help make your gait more stable and efficient.
