(954) 360-7779 For more details, look on our website at www.pptFL.com People with poor balance may feel unstable, or notice that they have difficulty walking in a straight line. They may also modify how they walk, and appear to “waddle”. Foot or foot-related problems may affect a person’s skeletal alignment and their gait, resulting in poor balance and an increased risk of falling. It is projected that in 2020 the costs associated with falls in the USA will be $43 Billion. Many studies have been performed to look at the efficacy of orthotics on balance and posture. In one particular study, the researches objectively measured balance in individuals that had taken a fall in the past year. They then provided custom orthotics to each individual in the group and retested balance over a period of time. The results provided evidence that customized orthotics improved balance measures for older adults. If you or a loved one is unstable and prone to falls, contact us for a free 15 minute GaitScan in our Deerfield clinic to see if orthotics might help.
