Gaitscan Custom Orthotics
Has foot or heel pain become a problem for you? Suffer with high arches or flat feet? Living with pain on a day to day basis impacts everything you do, and if it's your feet, it can become particularly irritating because of how heavily we rely on them.
At Living Well Medical in NYC, we use the advanced technology of the GaitScan gait analysis system to create custom orthotics for people who suffer with conditions like foot/heel pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and hammer toes.
The GaitScan is a diagnostic tool for assessing biomechanics. Many times, subtle imbalances or deformities of the feet are responsible for pain - high arches and flat feet, for example.
By constantly monitoring you while you walk, the GaitScan can give us a detailed accounting of your feet in motion. With that information, we can create orthotics for your shoes that will help correct the issue.
