Footbalance Medical: Solutions for Complex Foot Problems
At a Footbalance Medical clinic, a physiotherapist specializing in foot problems conducts an in-depth analysis of the lower limbs designed to test the mobility of the foot, ankle, knee and hip. Muscle strength, ligament support and the combined movement of the lower limbs and the back are also checked. This analysis, along with the patient's medical history and activity goals, provides the physiotherapist with the necessary information on which to mold and shape a custom pair of insoles for the patient.
The insoles are molded while the foot is in the correct, neutral position. When needed, additional stiffiners, padding, lifts or support wedges may be added to help guide the motion of the lower limbs towards a centered alignment and natural movement. In addition to Footbalance custom insoles, the therapy program may include manipulation, pain relief treatments, and customized rehabilitation and follow-up.
