Functional orthotics are prescription “shoe inserts.” They are custom-made to easily slide into your shoe and support the unique shape of your feet. They replace the generic insole included with shoes and are designed to align your feet, legs and knees by maintaining the foot’s THREE-ARCH STRUCTURE called the PLANTAR VAULT. Generic, over the counter orthotics only support one or maybe two arches and are manufactured to fit the ‘average’ foot. keep in mind: the average Australian takes 5,117 steps a day. With each step, degenerative changes in the muscles, joints and connective tissues of the feet are reinforced, causing the body’s foundation to be compromised and effecting, joint movement, circulation and body alignment. Chiropractors aren’t just interested in the back, they are trained to view the body as a whole structure, with every joint, muscle, tendon and bone working in unison to keep your body on the move. The feet are the foundation of your body, so ensuring that they stay properly aligned and problem-free benefits your entire body. An Optical Scan gives Dr Epstein a thorough clinical insight into levels of asymmetry throughout your feet. From this scan, a detailed Report of Finding can be produced where imbalance or problems in your foot foundation can be visualized and from which custom made functional orthotics can be prescribed.
