Foot Care… Putting your body in balance with Orthotics
The key to better health could be right under your…toes. What do my feet have to do with it? Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, 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.
GaitScan is a state of the art computer hardware and software system that helps your health care practitioner assess and analyze your feet. This analysis combined with your practitioners’ experience and knowledge detects abnormal foot function which may be affecting your feet or other parts of your body. Your health care practitioner at Total Health Systems can prescribe foot orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance. You can help us by discussing any nagging foot, leg or back problems, and even by simply asking if your feet could be part of the problem.
The Orthotic Group’s (TOG) custom fit orthotics help rebalance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body’s natural movements. In close partnership with your healthcare professional, TOG designs orthotics that augment treatment and add to your general well-being no matter where your feet may take you!

Mention the GaitScan to your physician or the front desk so they can schedule your assessment today!
