How much attention do you pay to your feet? How much attention should you pay to how they look? Those two engineering marvels that keep you up all day need to be kept looking and feeling good at all times. When feet don’t look good, it’s usually a sign that your health is under attack.
Just like the foundation that holds the weight of a building, your feet are the foundation for your body. They take your entire body weight in a normal standing position, with this weight increasing by up to 3 or 4 times when running. Impressive, isn’t it? That’s why when you have a problem with your feet, you should seek expert advice and treatment.
Your feet are constantly under stress, which explains why the majority of the population suffer a foot condition at one point in their lives. With each step you take, your feet have a direct impact on the rest of the body. That said, a ‘simple’ foot abnormality could affect your posture, joints and the entire upper body, causing discomfort and even pain.
Statistics by the American Pediatric Medical Association show that the average person takes 8,000 – 10,000 steps each day. This translates to around 185,000 kilometres in a lifetime which is, in turn, equivalent to walking more than 4 times around the globe. Can you imagine walking with painful feet or ill-fitting shoes 4 times around the earth? Furthermore, walking and running increases the pressure and weight on your feet significantly!
As if that’s not enough, some foot problems signify a serious underlying medical condition such as diabetes and arthritis. Moreover, foot problems are more prevalent amongst the female gender due to a history of wearing pointy toe shoes and high heels. That said, all foot ailments need to be addressed on time and by experts.
With our one-of-a-kind “Gait Scan” technology, we analyse your feet digitally using over 3,000 pressure sensors that can measure any kind of biomechanical problem causing pain and discomfort. This way, we give a thorough and accurate diagnosis, as well as offering the most appropriate treatment techniques available. Additionally, we design customised orthotics using pressure imprints of the feet and digital 3D imaging for patients that need orthotic therapy.
