The Orthotic Process
At Emerald Chiropractic we carry out a full posture assessment which involves static and dynamic gait analysis. From this we are able to show you the areas of you feet which are under the most pressure when standing and walking. Your therapist will explain to you what this mean and what impact it can have on your body.
A biomechanical assessment of the foot and ankle is then carried out. This helps to indicate any restrictions within the foot and ankle.
We then move on to scanning the foot, which creates a 3d image of the foot. This is then transferred to the software to start designing your custom made orthotic. Once this is complete we are then ready to download this to our in house 3D printer which will then create the finished product.
