INFRARED GAIT SCAN
Many people have problems created by improper movement of their feet. Low back pain, foot, and ankle pain, or knee and hip pain often come directly from improper foot movement.
At National Neuropathy Center (NNC) we specialize in diagnosing foot movement patterns by using infrared technology as well as time-lapse video of a person’s running and walking form. Our trained doctors understand sports and movement and are well-trained in the diagnosing and treatment of foot-related sports issues. We do not simply insert a one-size-fits-all drugstore product in the hope it will work.
The Top Causes of Ankle & Foot Pain
At NNC we’ve treated foot and ankle issues on a daily basis for years. The number one cause we see is poor movement of the foot as it relates to running. Many people have very poor running form and it causes overuse injuries to the bottom of the foot the ankle and the lower leg. Eventually, the pain reaches the knees and lumbar spine.
Proper foot movement needs to be reviewed by a knowledgeable professional with experience in not only proper running form but also with access to doctors with clinical experience in correcting the issue. Custom Orthotics from National Neuropathy Center.
Flat feet, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, chronic ankle sprains, knocked knees and low back pain are all issues resulting from improper running form.
In our office, we use a camera app to review running form and other technologies to measure movement of the spine to properly diagnose and treat foot and ankle pain. We also have the very best Sport Performance Coaches to aid in correcting any problem.
