Why Custom Prescription Orthotics?
Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joints, 214 ligaments and 38 tendons / muscles, containing 25% of all the bones in your body. In your lifetime your feet will take over 100 million steps, with every step causing an impact on your body.
Abnormal stresses and structural problems in your feet can cause pain throughout your entire body. Whatever the source of your pain – consider the possibility that custom prescribed foot orthotics can help. This is a service Dr. Sean Starr offers in his practice.
Do any of the following affect you?
- Do you stand or walk on hard surfaces for more than 4 hours daily?
- Do you participate regularly in any physical sport (basketball, baseball, running, tennis, golf, hockey, etc.)
- Are you age 40 or older?
- Do your shoes wear unevenly?
- Do you have joint pain while standing, walking or running?
- Is one of your legs shorter than the other?
- Do you have knock knees or bow legs?
- Do you have obvious foot problems (bunions, corns, flat feet, etc.)
- Do your feet "toe out" when walking?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions you should be aware that faulty mechanics in the bones of the feet or pelvis may be the cause. Even if your feet don't hurt they may be contributing to problems in other areas of your body. If you are having pain or discomfort in any area from your feet to your neck, custom made orthotics may help bring you long term relief. Treat the cause and the pain goes away. Treat the symptoms and it will just keep coming back.

Here's how the Footmaxx System works to alleviate all those aches and pain associated with foot-related problems....
You walk across a computerized force plate that's connected to a computer. The computerized mat has 960 electronic sensor points built into it.
As you walk, the force plate captures the pressure, motion and timing of your foot throughout the gait cycle. This data is analyzed by the computer to produce instant 2D and 3D graphic images of the pressures under your feet that you can see on the screen. This data along with any additional exam information is used to accurately create your
There is a secret to making custom orthotics that give you exactly the right correction from accurate measurements of the way you walk. In the past, doctors relied on plaster casts or foam boxes to get a static impression of the feet. However, these cast methods record only the shape of the foot at rest and not bearing any weight. This method would be good if life was static, but it is in fact dynamic. We take thousands of steps each day and an orthotic needs to be custom made with this dynamic information in mind.
The Footmaxx System will help your feet function better. Footmaxx orthotics are light weight and they fit easily and discreetly into your existing footwear. You can wear your most stylish shoes, and still get the proper support and correction from your orthotics. Footmaxx custom orthotics provide superior control and correction for foot and gait abnormbalities. Custom made especially for you, Footmaxx orthotics will correct and improve the way your feet strike the ground, enhancing your natural movement and helping your feet move more efficiently.
