GaitScan

Lifestyle Chiropractic and Mawnan Smith Chiropractic Clinic are home to the only GaitScan system in Devon and Cornwall.

TOG GaitScan is the most technologically advanced gait analysis system available.

The TOG GaitScan System assesses your need for prescription custom made insoles in the same way that an optician would prescribe a pair of glasses for the individual wearer. TOGS come with a lifetime guarantee and have a lifespan of 7-10 years.

Did you know:

  • A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort to your knees, hips and lower back.

 

  • When you are running, the pressure on your feet can be three or four times your body weight. Even walking can produce more pressure than the sum of your body weight.
  • The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day? That adds up to about 115,000 miles in a lifetime or more than four times around the world. That is a lot of walking with ill-fitting shoes or painful feet!!
  • In some cases foot ailments can be an early signal of more serious medical problems like arthritis or diabetes.
  • Women have four times as many foot problems as men because they have a long history of wearing high heels and/or pointy toe shoes.

Many of the problems associated with foot mechanics can be easily fixed with insoles.
However it is important that the insoles which you buy are suitable for YOUR FEET
.

- This is because your feet are as individual as you.
- They deserve the level of individual care that TOGS insoles can offer.

According to research around

70% of the population have some degree of abnormal foot function.

Uneven walking patterns, shuffling walks, bent-over posture, bunions, swollen ankles, knock-knees, unlevel hips, twisted backs, unlevel shoulders, heads tilted to one side and uneven arm swings are just a few symptoms we've all noticed but probably not even given second thought.

Although these symptoms become more noticeable with age abnormal foot function can be present in children, teenagers and young adults.

If it so prevalent is it something we should worry about?

The simple answer is yes, because as well as causing pain in the foot and lower leg, abnormal foot function can be a cause of:

chronic tension headaches

chronic back pain

chronic hip pain

chronic shoulder pain

chronic neck pain
