Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundations of your house, your feet support 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. This could be the root cause of pain in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, or lower back.
Here at NYP we offer a biomechanical analysis using a Gaitscan™ , computer hardware and software, that helps your physiotherapist assess and analyse your feet. The scan maps foot pressure and produces a 3D image.
Once the scan has been completed and if we decide that prescription orthotics are the correct form of treatment, the scan is sent electronically to Canada. The orthotics are milled to precision and returned for fitting in approximately 2-3 weeks. The physiotherapist will contact you once they have arrived and book you in for a fitting appointment to test and discuss the correct way to wear the orthotics over the initial few weeks.
