Santa Monica Custom Foot Orthotics
PRODIGY OFFERS THE BEST IN PRESCRIPTION ORTHOTICS
WHAT ARE PRESCRIPTION ORTHOTICS?
Orthotics are insoles for your shoes that are custom made for a specific individual and in most cases a specific foot or leg problem to correct poor foot mechanics.
Symptoms of poor foot mechanics include:
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch/Heel pain
- Leg/Knee pain
- Hip or back pain-even neck pain
It is important to correct a small problem in your feet, because a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems.
Orthotics help by restoring the normal balance and alignment of your body by gently correcting foot abnormalities. They reduce problems associated with:
- Pressure points
- Muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine.
HOW DO I KNOW ORTHOTICS ARE RIGHT FOR ME?
Prodigy Chiro-Care & Spinal Rehab will provide you with a consultation to see if your problem is related to your feet, from here our health care practitioner will perform a gait scan which helps to assess and analyze your feet.
WHAT IS A GAIT SCAN?
Gait Scan system is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing your patient's biomechanics through state of the art computer hardware and software which:
- Scans the foot as you walk across a pressure plate which captures the distribution of pressure of your foot overtime.
- Maps foot pressure with 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot.
The information is then summarized in a report which will assist the health care practitioner to determine if you need orthotic therapy.
The Orthotic Group offers a wide variety of orthotics to fit your lifestyle.
- Casual orthotics
- Sport orthotics
