Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
Absolute PhysioCare and Sports Rehab, a Burnaby orthotics clinic, has recently announced the launch of its custom orthotics and gait scan analysis that will be focused on correcting and eliminating foot abnormalities in order to restore normal body balance. This treatment can reduce stress on the joints and cause less fatigue and pain. In addition, Custom orthotics provides shock absorption, extra cushioning, support and reduced pressure in the foot, resulting in relief and greater comfort while walking, running, or playing sports.
Absolute Physio uses the revolutionary 3-D digital gait analysis. It is a state-of-the-art computer hardware and software system that provides a detailed analysis of the feet in motion as one walks over a foot plate. With 4096 sensors, the footplate can scan up to the rate of 300Hz. The pressure mapping allows experts at Absolute Physio, Burnaby to be able to pick out root causes of problems with foot function and gait pattern.
“Your feet have a direct impact on your entire body as it supports all the weight of your body,” states a company representative. “A subtle change in the way you walk or run will cause a chain reaction of misalignment in your joints which can lead to stressing the joints in the ankle, knee, hip and spine. The gait scan analysis in combination with a physical examination and assessment of your feet will assist the physiotherapist in providing you with a custom made orthotic based on your specific needs. This will also determine if an orthotic prescription would be of benefit to you.”
