How do custom made orthotic insoles work?

archtype

Orthotics can help improve the biomechanics of your feet by supporting the arches and stabilising the bones of your feet, which brings the muscles, and bones back into alignment.

The purpose of orthotic insoles is to help your feet work at their best. This can help reduce pain and pressure on your feet, knees and other joints.

If your feet are not working at there best it is usually due to the bio-mechanics of your feet. One of the first things people notice about their feet is the type of arch they have: either high, flat or normal.

The picture at left shows how your arch types can cause your feet to work differently.

The most common problem we see is over pronation of the feet. Which is when the feet roll inwards too much. This is often seen in people with weak arches or flat feet. If you have flat feet you may experience localised foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, pain in the arch of the foot and heel pain.

Sometimes people also find they suffer with symptoms further up their legs such as knee pain.

Occasionally they may have problems with their hips and back and sometimes flat feet can even cause neck pain.

Orthotics can help improve the biomechanics of your feet by supporting the arches of your foot and stabilising the bones of your feet, which brings the muscles, and bones back into alignment.

This can help reduce pain and pressure on your feet, knees and other joints.

Off-the-shelf or Custom-made? Is there a difference?

Off the shelf orthotics are are mass produced, give general arch support and are good as an introduction. They are not bespoke insoles and will not be customised to your needs.

Prescription orthotics are custom made to meet individual needs. They are made of more durable, better quality materials and have a longer life span.

Because they are custom made insoles people notice more of an improvement over the generic, off the shelf orthotics.

If you have started out in off the shelf orthotics and have noticed some improvement. You may find upgrading to custom orthotic insoles will give further benefits.

Orthotics custom-made for you by Total Chiropractic + GAIT SCAN technology

foot-massage

The TOG GaitScan system uses an in-depth biomechanical analysis to assesses your need for prescription custom-made orthotics, in the same way that an optician would prescribe a pair of glasses for the individual wearer.

At Total Chiropractic we use the TOG GaitScan system to analyse your foot step and make your orthotics.

Our TOG GaitScan Orthotics are custom made from unique memory flex plastics to meet your individual foot care needs, and come with a guarantee against cracking and splitting,

They have a lifespan of 7-10 years.

At Total Chiropractic a chiropractor performs your GaitScan appointment. We understand the biomechanics of your feet are fundamental to good posture and healthy joints. If the biomechanics of your feet are not working well , it can alter the way in which your knees, hips, pelvis and spine function.

Your GaitScan appointment includes a full history of your problem. As well as an examination of your feet, ankles, knees, hips and low back. This detailed examination gives us a full picture of the problems you are having. We can see if any other joints or muscles may be affecting the pain you are experiencing.

This gives us a better understanding of your problem, so we can advise you on the best choice of custom made orthotic and on any other exercises or treatment we think may help you.

Our clients say:

"I attended Total Chiropractic because I was experiencing very unpleasant knee pain while walking or driving. My initial sessions saw my pain reduce and worked on muscles I had very tight while compensating for my knee issues. My gaitscan revealed that I was walking in a very flat-footed fashion. The scan shows in detail where pressure is being applied and can then be compared with the "norm". The orthotics weren't cheap but being able to keep driving and to enjoy walking were very important to me.

I am very pleased I decided to proceed as I've felt the benefit of the orthotics from my first use. They have changed the way I walk and compensated for my flat footedness. They haven't hurt my feet at all and have been easy to swap between shoes.

My knee pain is much better and I'm back to doing five mile walks and no longer dread having to drive. I would recommend both Totally Chiropractic and investing in custom orthotics."
