Insoles Podiatry Singapore
The area of biomechanics is the application of mechanics to the our human body and its joints and parts. The basis for this is to understand and analyze how forces that are created within our bodies, or forces that are applied to our bodies, influence the way we move.
If there is a problem structurally with our feet, that can and will affect the way we walk and run, and more than likely to also cause pain throughout our entire bodies. That is why, there is a need for clear and accurate assessment of the mechanics of our lower limbs to understand the subtle issues in our feet, ankles, knees, and even hips may cause.
Insoles Podiatry Singapore Assessment
Ok, when we walk, our foot touches the ground for about 0.8 of a second, and 0.25 seconds when we're running. No practitioners, no matter how well trained, can provide a 100% accurate analysis of your foot function with their bare eyes in the quarter of a second.
Which is why our combination "combo" of skilled biomechanical assessment plus a computerized gait scan, is the best way to assess and diagnose foot problems by our specialist podiatrists and physiotherapists.
Gait scans involves thousands of tiny sensors that capture the distribution of pressure throughout the sole of your feet each time you take a step; with this then we can display foot pressure distributions on the screen with very high accuracy of the pressures under your feet.
Insoles Podiatry Singapore Treatment
Insoles and orthotics refers to specially designed insoles which are customized and made for you by prescription. This is done by taking a cast of your foot in its neutral position and then sent to a lab with your prescription, which then makes the insoles to your exact customizations.
The insole main focus is to correct your foot and ankle and this often leads to relief of abnormal strains of tissues and structures. For milder mal-alignments or for sports, we may use a semi-custom insole instead.
Our specialist physiotherapists and podiatrists will be able to advise you to manage and resolve your specific foot and ankle problem.
