Your feet are the foundation for your body. They engage with the ground step-after-step to propel you forward. They work the whole day whether you stand, run or walk. Depending on the way  your feet move and perform can result in stress through your legs and produce foot, ankle, hip, knee or back pain.  Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored.

The Next Step Difference

At Next Step you are provided with individual attention and high-quality service focused on relieving pain and restoring you to your active lifestyle.  We understand that for foot orthotics to help decrease your foot discomfort and increase your everyday function they need to address the way your foot moves when you do.  While this may seem obvious, it is NOT how some professionals prescribe foot orthotics.  Many of these professionals create foot orthotics based only on the shape of your foot without ever watching you walk!! 

At Next Step the goal is to determine how your feet function when you walk and run. This information leads to the development of custom-made foot orthotics to manage the forces put through your legs, control the motion of your feet, and relieve your pain and discomfort. 

The evaluation involves:
  • A full interview about the history leading up to your consultation
  • A biomechanical evaluation of your feet and legs
  • A dynamic evaluation of the way your feet move when walking
  • A digital recording made while you walk
  • An analysis of the way you walk taken from the digital recording
  • Hand molded impression casts of your feet
  • An evaluation of your current footwear and recommendations for shoes to meet your needs
