Our posture and spinal health begins at the feet.- our foundation! It is vital for us to correct for any abnormalities in our foot structure and the way we walk to optimize our spinal function and the efficacy of our chiropractic adjustments. To this end, we have partnered with Footmaxx, a leading clinical lab in custom orthotic therapy. They work with professional athletes and teams in the NBA, NHL, NFL, and MLS to name a few. Their industry leading quality of orthotics is made possible by their cutting-edge Metascan technology, which we incorporate into our clinic. Every patient receives a foot and gait scan analysis with the Metascan as part of their examination to determine if he or she is a candidate for custom orthotic therapy.
The Metscan scan analyzes the biomechanics of one’s feet and it also highlights any abnormality, which might be causing problems with daily activity or walking in general.
The metascan also allows us to determine whether or not you require custom orthotics. Walking is a complex process. It involves your body’s biomechanics from head to toe, including several parts of your brain. We play health detective and investigate what your walk, stride, gait and posture say about your health?
To determine if you are a candidate for Custom Orthotics, Dr. Bakshi conducts a Gait Analysis using the Metascan.
At Brampton’s Nirvana Wellness Centre we recommend orthotics for the following conditions:
Ankle Instability (Rolled ankles)
Heel Pain/Bone Spurs
Lower Back Pain
Diabetic Foot Problems
"My feet problems began years ago from being a long distance runner. Many hours pounding the pavement had taken its toll on my feet. I had heard that Dr. Bakshi could help me with my consistent lower back pain. She recommended orthotics on the spot. After a thorough evaluation she gave me detailed information and education on the injuries and what to expect with the results with orthotics. I would highly recommend this personable and knowledgeable health care professional. The pain is gone”
With so many types of custom orthotics to choose from for managing varying conditions to optimizing performance and function, it important to get the right fit for your feet. Take a step in the right direction.
