Custom Orthotics

What is A Custom Orthotic?

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet. In most cases, if you have work health insurance, you are covered in some way or form for custom orthotics. 

Laptop

The Spinal Garage uses the state-of-the-art TOG GaitScan™ diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows our doctors to analyze patient foot biomechanics and order custom orthotic products to help further care.

With 4096 sensors and a scan rate of 300 frames per second, GaitScan™ is the industry leader in dynamic scanning capabilities.

What does this mean for you? A new, in-depth method of assessing your gait cycle with a dynamic scan gives your health care provider access to a wealth of information that cannot be obtained with the naked eye. Over a million points of data are recorded, tracking minor flaws in your biomechanics and shedding light on issues that if left untreated, could develop into painful conditions over time.
The TOG GaitScan™ is a valuable education tool that provides practitioners with a comprehensive biomechanical analysis for each patient as well as clear, concise images to assess and articulate the need for orthotic therapy.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have had severe headaches and lower back pain for 13 years. I also kept getting colds that ended up in pneumonia and endometriosis for 5 years. Sometimes I needed to take days and weeks off work to recuperate and just stay in bed. At one time I even had to stop working for 4 years, and as a teacher this was very discouraging. I had seen many doctors and was taking Tylenol, Ibuprofen and sleeping tablets plus was told that I needed surgery.

    After I started Chiropractic care, I can honestly say that everything is almost 100%. I have so much more energy and any sign of lung or sinus congestion disappears with an adjustment. Even my gums don't bleed anymore! Everybody should go to the chiropractor to feel rejuvenated!""
