Get your Gait into Balance
Sometimes the cure for a problem can not be other but a surgery to correct one's foot imbalance, bone deformation, bunion (Hallux valgus), club foot or fractures. Foot and ankle medicine is a complicated, complex and comprehensive, and therefore the statement that any solution to a certain problem can be a non-invasive one is not always correct. Nevertheless, in post-surgery cases we may consider that the achieved correction better be supported in order to preserve the results.
But for non-operational cases, such as Plantar fasciitis, or simple heel pain, flat foot or minor bunions, we can think in terms of preventive care or early observation, wherein there is a great importance in implementing the usage of supportive footwear and auxiliaries, i.e, insoles, customized orthotics, comfort auxiliaries and of course good pair of shoes.
At Balance Foot & Ankle, Shanghai - we take it seriously. Off the shelf insoles might do the job, for some people with average problem and average expectation. We think different. We do believe that computerized analysis is an advanced but not enough. Good materials are essential but not solely. Individual observation, customization and fitting are the only way but not alone. We believe that the integration of the above, together with (the free of charge) continuation follow-ups is the serious way to treat your feet.
Why so many people have foot problems? Many factors have been related to it ! Understanding that our feet function as the base of our body (weight and balance) and on top of that, while walking or running our feet function, for each step, as a landing surface of our body, crucial as wheels of an airplane but sometimes being treated like the wheels of a toy! Further, if we consider few life factors such as personal over weight, heavy workload, untreated or unhealed injuries, bad shoe wear like high heel or soft sole shoes, we will find these, all due to a very common daily behaviors which can easily turn from risk factors into cause factors, when we put all the above under the fact that people, in average, performing 4000 – 8000 steps a day!
