Gait Analysis and Recall Programme
Using technology combined with specific muscle function / orthopaedic tests, gait analysis can be collated. This is useful when assessing your core stability; if osteopathic or chiropractic adjustments are falling out too quickly.
All can often be changed by temporary or long term Prescription Orthotics due to the foot and leg mechanics having a referred effect up the body.
The TOG Gait Scan is used to assess and diagnose foot biomechanics. It can measure the distribution of force throughout the foot during each step to identify the distribution of pressure, high pressure areas and gait abnormalities. The system accurately graphs pressures exerted during the gait cycle during both walking and running.
We offer mini pre and post chiropractic gait scans to judge this as well as full scans if orthotics are becoming a necessary part of rehabilitation
We also provide a free of charge after care check-up scan to monitor when to remove or change the orthotics as the body is correcting, and advise on whether a 6, 12, 18 or 24 month recall programme is appropriate for those patients with special needs.
Like glasses, the orthotic insoles that we provide are made from a prescription, so they are custom made specifically to YOUR needs to give the best possible support and relief from symptoms. They help reduce pain throughout the feet, legs, knees, hips and back and can dramatically improve and help maintain a healthy posture.
Unlike most insoles, which are made from polypropylene meaning they can flatten under constant stress and become less effective TOG orthotic insoles are made from a unique memory plastic which is guaranteed for life against breakage and will never flatten.
