Foot and Gait Analysis
When walking commences, the arches will typically develop as the foot endures pressure from body weight. The purpose of the arch aids in maintaining balance in the body, and provides a spring to the step. Arches are generally strong, and this may help the feet to adjust to a variety of surfaces that are walked on.

Orthotics are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain. You have seen commercial insoles in pharmacies however, each foot of an individual is unique even in the same individual.
Thanks to the technology today you can have a 3D scan of your feet and heels an have a moulded custom insole 100 percent tailored to your condition.
The orthotic is put into your shoe to realign your foot, cure your deformity in certain ages, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot, or simply make your shoes more comfortable for walking.
