Why use computer scans?
Computers have become a normal part of our lives, they are in our phones, televisions, heating systems, cars , microwaves. It is hard to think of an aspect of life that is not affected.
For Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Physiotherapists the imaging gives a very clear record of what is going on, this can be compared to the initial exam to see how far you have come and what still needs to be worked on.
The foot scans show if the feet are flat, by scanning from underneath they show what is going on with your weight on them, which is obviously how you use your feet. Flat feet can lead on to low back pain and mechanical stresses can cause sciatica , which is pain in the nerves that leave the low back and run down the legs.
Bi lateral weights are the use of two scales to see if you have half your weight on each foot. Taken together these help to assess the feet, record that and help decide if you need insoles in the shoes which are called orthotics.
