PedAlign – Orthotics by Digital Casting
Feet Don’t Fail Me now!
The average person, the American Podiatric Medical Association estimates, takes between 8,000 and 10,000(!) steps every day. In a lifetime that adds up to about 115,000 miles. With each step, the pressure on your feet can exceed your body weight, when you’re running, the pressure soars to three or four times your weight.
The is a complicated machine. Each foot contains 26 bones and 33 joints held together by 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and scores of tendons. That’s a lot of moving parts!
Thousands of times each day of your life, your feet are buffered and jarred! Even simple everyday activities like shopping, chasing after kids or walking the dog take a toll on your feet. And if you’re into athletics – biking, skiing, hiking, running, training for a marathon or contact sports – your feet take an even worse beating as those bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons battle against gravity to control the force and weight of your body’s contact with the ground. And medical conditions like diabetes or lingering can make maters worse.
Feet For Life Motion Center
The profession of podiatry studies the cause and effect of foot injuries along with healing these injuries. We now know that overuse of rigid orthotics and padded footwear actually cause some foot problems. This is due to the weakening of the intrinsic muscles and lack of a full range of motion of the joints and achilles tendon. What was once thought to be a standard of care is now being questioned everyday as more people discover the advantages of minimalist or “barefoot” footwear. Orthotics still have a place in treatment, but that place is changing. The Motion Center strives to compliment and complete a cycle of medical treatment.
This Simi Gait Analysis, a complete line of comfort geriatric and diabetic footwear, state of the art cold laser, Annodyne, and radial eswt physical therapy administered by Dr. Arthur Langston, DC, a sports medicine chiropractor. We also have AFFORDABLE, orthotics packages that include gait analysis and diagnostic ultrasound.

Orthotics – the Scientific Answer
to Foot Woes

Orthotics are the tested, proven way to stabilize your feet, relieve pressure and get the biomechanical function of your feet back in alignment.
With the PedAlign system, practitioner-prescribed, carefully crafted, precision orthotics compensate for the ravages of weight and gravity. They can put the spring back into your step and swagger back into your walk- regardless if used for proactive intervention or a foot discomfort caused by work, play or a medical condition.

Your Foot Comfort:

a Shoe Salesmen
When this little piggy goes to the market, you might see pressure mats retail stores or shoe shops at the mall. They’re accompanied by slick marketing materials and eye-catching charts illustrating pressure distributions.
