Absolutely not! Although we do see a lot of runners coming through our clinic, having gait analyzed is of value to anybody at any activity level. For those who are not comfortable on a treadmill, we will do a thorough walking analysis in our spacious clinic. By observing your gait, we gain valuable insight that can help us determine the root cause of an issue and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
We want to help you move better!
There is no industry standard for orthotics pricing so it is up to the individual clinic to establish the worth of their product. As a patient, it is important that you check the credentials of your orthotics provider (are they a Certified Pedorthist) and if possible, get references from family, friends, colleagues who are happy with their orthotics. Be careful of clinics that charge extra for adjustments and paperwork - these SHOULD come with the price of your orthotics. Some patients need adjustments, some don’t and you won’t know which category you fall into before you wear them.
We really want you to love your brace and cringe at the thought of expensive products collecting dust because they are too bulky, hot, thick, etc.
The Comprehensive Performance Analysis is for those that have a high degree of interest of the influential factors that can help best results and performance. In this assessment we use more of our Health Coach skills to add more information about things like nutrition, stress vs rest, recovery etc. Consisting of a preliminary 90 minute evaluation and a 30 minute follow-up, this service allows us the time to evaluate many inter-connected factors that can help optimize our patients health and performance goals.
