Computerised Foot Assessment
Pro-Fit Physio & Allied Health Centre can help you put your best foot forward with a comprehensive foot analysis that incorporates GaitScan.
GaitScan is state-of-the-art technology that allows practitioners to analyse patient biomechanics and identify abnormalities that, if left untreated, can develop into painful conditions over time. Practitioners can then assess, diagnose , prescribe and order custom orthotic products to help correct these flaws.
Orthotics are custom-made orthopaedic devices that fit comfortably inside shoes. They are designed to correct various biomechanical problems by realigning and stabilising the bones in the feet, so as to prevent or rehabilitate lower limb and lower back injuries.
You should consider a foot analysis/GaitScan if you:
Play sports, especially those that involve running
Spend a large portion of the day on your feet, perhaps for work
Have a medical condition that affects the way you walk
Notice uneven shoe wear
Trip frequently when walking
Experience reoccurring pain in your lower limbs or lower back, whether it be muscular or skeletal
Walk with your toes pointing inwards or outwards
Have one leg shorter than the other
