Computer Scanned Custom Foot Orthotics – Part II

All Orthotics are NOT Created Equal

Problems Associated with Computer Scanned Custom Foot Orthotics continued…

2. Potentially Dangerous.

An orthotic designed from the details of a computer scan does not cradle each foot in the position necessary to optimize the passage of force as each foot transitions between pronation and supination (that was a mouthful – lots of wisdom here).

Computer scanned orthotics are designed to transfer force from areas of higher pressure to areas of lower pressure.

Not very specific, however, this will usually help alleviate pain short-term because the overworked muscles can relax.

Well, that’s only until the newly activated muscles become overworked and you’re right back where you started.

ALERT: This is not the same as wearing an orthotic specifically designed to optimize how each foot handles gravity.

In order for each foot to effectively handle gravity & for that long-term result…

-Each foot must properly work as a spring throughout each day-

Arch-up = Good Spring = Optimized Pronation & Supination = Healing.

Here’s a visual to make clear what happens to the arch standing versus seated.

In the picture on the left (BAD) you will see how the Arch Has Collapsed and everybody knows a collapsed arch is a really bad shock absorber. 

Computer scans provide details about the foot on the left with the bad arch – pointless!

In the picture on the right (GOOD) you will see a Huge Arch – this is MASS posture. 

MASS Posture Equals Arch-Up Support
