Put Your Best Foot Forward With a Custom GaitScan™ & Orthotics!

Your feet are your foundation; they have carried you through your whole life, but it is usually our feet that take the most punishment in our day to day lives. As we grow older we rely more and more on our feet to keep us moving, and a GaitScan™ assessment coupled with custom orthotics from The Orthotic Group can help!

As always, our focus is on you, our valued clients. The team at Nose Creek Sport Physiotherapy is committed to providing exceptional care with the help of advanced technology and client education opportunities, ensuring you receive maximum benefit for your overall health.

Our dedication to integrating promising assessment tools into our protocol is a key component in your continued care, and we are consistently looking to uncover ways to gain insight into your individual bio-mechanics.

We are excited to introduce a new, dynamic gait analysis system into our client care program. TOG GaitScan™, an industry leader in scanning technology, uses 4096 sensors that capture 300 images per second to provide a detailed snapshot of your foot in motion. In seconds, a million data points specific to your unique bio-mechanics are compiled in a comprehensive report, allowing our team to uncover deviations from optimal foot mechanics. Your individual patterns of pressure and timing provide us with vital information in crafting your custom orthotic devices.                                     
The human body is extraordinary, and in order to perform at our very best we need to ensure that we care for our foundation. When we address the workings of your feet, we can garner results such as quicker recovery, prevention of injury and improved performance. Don’t wait for pain!

Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joints, a whopping 214 ligaments, 38 tendons and muscles, and 25% of all of the bones in your body are in your feet! However, not all feet are created equally; this is why you need to get fitted for orthotics and why each GaitScan™ assessment is individually customized.

Visit us at one of our two clinic locations to receive your GaitScan™ assessment, get a custom orthotics fit and optimize your performance.
