Orthotic support for your body's base and gait
Feet play an important role in your overall health—they serve as a strong base to your body when you’re standing and walking.
However, at times, your feet and body may benefit from extra support by wearing custom orthotics. As part of your orthotics assessment, a chiropractor’s evaluation may include observation, gait analysis, functional analysis and neurological and orthopaedic testing.
This will help the chiropractor determine if custom orthotics are appropriate for a patient
Chiropractors consider the body as a whole. For example, when assessing knee pain they will also look at the function of the back, hip, ankle and foot. Interestingly, patients who benefit the most from orthotics may not present with only foot pain, but rather pain in the ankle, knee, hip or low back, and a comprehensive look at all these biomechanics are reflected in chiropractic training. The underlying problem doesn’t always stem from the source of pain—a foot dysfunction (e.g. over pronation) can cause pain in other parts of the body.
