Gait Scan will enhance your practitioners assessment of your feet and help you understand how prescription orthotics work to restore proper foot function and relieve discomfort.

PERSCRIPTION ORTHOTICS are custom devices worn in your shoes that provide correction and assistance to your feet, helping them function in a more efficient manner. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of pain you are experiencing in your feet, knees, hip or back.
