Customized Orthotics by Foot Levelers
The feet are the most abused parts of the human body. From regular activities such as walking and running to more intense actions such as dancing and playing sports, the feet consistently absorb the force generated by body weight and gravity combined. And without proper support, your feet will be overwhelmed by the constant stress. Without any or lack of support, this could lead to arch pain or plantar fasciitis–a very common condition affecting the plantar fascia that can be difficult to treat if not looked after properly. Dr. Gallentine can perform a foot scan to show you how imbalances in the feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders. The foot scan will show how Stabilizing Orthotics may help.
Here's how they work:
After Dr. Gallentine completes the foot scan, a report will provide you a Pronation/Stability Index, a Foot Assessment, and a Body Assessment.
The index reveals the severity of pronation/stability in your feet, ranging from Optimal to Severe. An index of 102, for example, is Moderate pronation/instability. Untreated imbalances of any level may lead to chronic problems throughout your body. - See more at: http://www.footlevelers.com/ab...
The red areas on the V7+ scan show where your feet are applying pressure. Loss of arch height – which shows more red in the middle of the foot, such as the image shown – can cause flattening and rolling of the feet. The scan also shows the percentage of imbalance for each foot. The higher number indicates greater instability on that side of the body. - See more at: http://www.footlevelers.com/ab...
The body assessment image shows how imbalances in the feet can lead to knee rotation, pelvic tilt and shoulder drop. These imbalances in the body can be caused by pronation and supination of the foot. These instabilities can lead to conditions such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and neck pain. A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. Wearing Stabilizing Orthotics may help alleviate imbalances and conditions caused by those imbalances. - See more at: http://www.footlevelers.com/ab...
