Digital Foot Scanning

Digital Foot Scanning

Why are Feet Important?

Feet are the foundation of your support. Just like a skyscraper, your entire structure is dependant upon the integrity of your foundation. But unlike skyscrapers, your body often adapts to these abnormalities compensating for the problems in your feet by distorting other areas above.

For some this distortion affects local areas such as their feet, knees or hips. For others the affect is much broader impacting their TMJ, back, neck or even brain. But feet go beyond that…

IT’S BEEN SUGGESTED THAT 99% OF PEOPLE HAVE SOME FORM OF FOOT IMBALANCE

Feet play a major role in many neurological processes. Balance for instance is derived from a combination of vision, gravitational sense and the ability to feel the floor whilst feet also play an important role in the neural pattern generators that guide our walking and running ability.

Good healthy foot function is critical for good health.

Common Symptoms of Foot Problems

The most common dysfunction we see in the feet is overpronation. Overpronation occurs when the feet roll too far in. This can be caused by muscle imbalances, ligamentous changes or even developmental problems. Common injuries we see in those who overpronate include:

Achilles tenonditis

Heel pain

Plantar fasciitis

Stress fractures

Big toe pain

Bunions

Shin Splints

Knee pain

Back pain

Hip pain and bursitis

Neck pain

TMJ Dysfunction

Less commonly, some individuals can have the opposite issue known as supination. These people tend to not roll in enough often resulting in a reduced ability to absorb shock. This can lead to greater impact in higher joints.

“The BEST solution I’ve found to my back and neck pain!”

Why Digitally Scan your Feet?

Through our specifically developed assessment system, we’re often able to locate the feet as the primary cause of problems in many people with seemingly unrelated problems.

Using specific foot assessments such as arch drop height, foot flare, hallux freedom, Achilles shape, sensation and muscle function we can rapidly identify the potential cause of your foot problem. However, nothing replaces the ability to see what your feet look like from underneath whilst your standing.

“WELCOME TO DIGITAL FOOT SCANNING MELBOURNE

There are many ways to assessing feet but gone are the days of plaster casting and molds that are messy and don’t provide an accurate representation of your feet when you’re standing.

Our digital foot scanning device is a state-of-the-art scanning system that allows us to measure the weight distribution patterns of your feet whilst you’re standing AND visually see the underside of your feet.

The system is fast, safe and provides you with an immediate written report of the health of your feet and the potential postural problems that might be associated.

What If I Need Orthotics?

Our aim is always to get you back to the way you were designed to be! To get that movement back to normal and allow your structure, brain and nervous to thrive.

If it’s just too late for you and too much damage has occurred, then sometimes we need to support you with the best that is available. That’s why we only use Foot Levelers custom, fully flexible orthotics.

“Your feet were designed with three arches, but those over-the-counter orthotics usually only support 1!”

Why We Use Foot Levelers Orthotics?

Here’s a few reasons why we love and only use Foot Levelers orthotics:

How can i get Scanned?

Getting scanned is easy and takes just 5 minutes. But we always recommend you see one of our expert Chiropractors to ensure orthotics are the right option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people are often concerned whether the practitioners they are looking to can help them. That’s completely normal and we understand this. But there truly is only one true way of knowing whether we can help you or not and that is with a thorough assessment. What we can say is that we promise to be truthful, open and honest with our findings and also work with you to achieve goals you would like to achieve in ways you feel comfortable in achieving them. We understand for many people they still feel a little insecure, and that’s ok. So if you would like to have a brief chat with one of our practitioners about your case prior to coming in, arrange a 10 minute phone appointment with one of our practitioners so we can quickly work out if your problem is one we often work with.

Your initial assessment is the most important appointment you’ll have with our team. Your initial assessment provides us with the time to gather all the important bits of information we need to adequately identify the cause of your problems and work with you heading forward. It is comprised of various health, neurological, physiological and biomechanical tests designed to not only find the cause of your problem, but to help us identify any other potential problems that might be developing.

Often we may require the use of further assessments such as our digital foot scanning technology or heart rate variability technology. In some circumstances we may need to refer you for specialized imagery, such as X-Rays or MRI, or for various laboratory tests. Rest assured our team will walk you through this process so there are no worries or fears along the way.

The complete process of an initial assessment can take up to one hour depending upon the complexity of your problem.

Most health funds have some form of rebate for Chiropractic services. A quick call to your private health insurance provider should be able to answer this for you. Usually there is a separate section for ancillary healthcare which includes Chiropractic, Osteopathy, physiotherapy and other similar health care practices. So simply give your insurer a call and they’ll be able to advise you on your level of coverage.

In terms of our office, when you attend for your appointment we’ll provide you with an itemized receipt which you can use to immediately claim your assessment off. This allows you to keep track of your rebates without any stress at all.

Chiropractic care is not directly medicare rebatable in Australia. However, our practitioners do like working with your GP to provide an integrative approach to your health. As such, our team do accept Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) arrangements which allows for some rebates to be paid by medicare.

If you’re unsure or have specific questions in relation to the use of your EPC plan, just give our office a call and we’ll discuss its use with you further.

We have our own specific parking available right behind our office. Feel free to park within this space. Otherwise, there is free parking available on the road alongside our office on Curtin Street.

Tottenham station is approximately 1.5km along Ashley Street and Dobson’s Reserve bus stop is also a mere 50m from our office. Many people attending our office get here via the bus and train.
