Feet Hurt? They Don't Have To...

Foot pain is a problem that affects all of us at one time . In some cases, medical conditions play a significant role in foot pain. In other cases, it can be as simple as having worn a shoe that is the wrong size, of unsuitable shape, with insufficient cushion, or with inappropriate support. The wrong shoe can lead to ankle, shin, knee, hip, back pain, and even cause chronic injury.

The Gait Assessment process involves more than just "watching you walk or run." It is a multi-step process to ensure that you purchase the shoe that:
  • Conforms to your foot shape
  • Matches the characteristics of your gait
  • Provides appropriate cushioning
  • Is the correct length and width
  • Is the most comfortable

We start by evaluating your current worn shoe. Examining the insole and outer sole of your current shoe tells us a lot about your gait. We can usually see impressions in the insole that inform us about your foot distribution within the shoe. Is there more wear on the interior side (medial) or outside (lateral) side? Is there significant wear in the arch area? What does the heel imprint look like?
