Like all major load-bearing joints, the smaller joints of the ankle and foot can become very painful and considering the average person takes over 1 million steps each year they are particularly prone to wear and tear.
Each foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 tendons and 107 ligaments so there's a lot that can go wrong! Careful examination is needed to determine the exact cause of foot pain and the most effective treatment options.
At Riverside Chiropractic Clinic Cork, we use Gaitscan technology to analyse specific foot problems that will respond to the use of orthotics - a prescription insole that is built according to a scan of your foot and your gait. Custom Foot Orthotics are designed to alleviate foot pain and help correct your walking gait.
