Orthotics

Did you know that how you walk can cause pain throughout your body?

Sometimes, pains in your feet, legs, knees, hips, back and even your neck can be a result of poor foot function and alignment.

How can Orthotics help?

Orthotics are individual prescription inserts which fit into your shoes to help support the normal balance and alignment of your feet and body, to help relieve postural problems, pain and fatigue.

How does it work?

At the Barnstaple Chiropractic & Complementary Health Centre, our qualified practitioners can perform an advanced individual assessment to analyse and detect unusual foot function whilst walking or standing that could be affecting the rest of your body.

We use ‘GaitScan’ - a computerised pressure plate, which has thousands of tiny sensors that capture the distribution of pressure throughout the sole of your foot to create 2D and 3D images and an analysis report.

 

Your own unique footprint

As a result of the scan, your Chiropractor will be able to prescribe a unique pair of comfortable ultra slim orthotic shoe inserts that fit comfortably into your own shoes to help bring relief from fatigue and pain.
