Signs and Symptoms of Orthotic Requirements
- If a person has an altered gait, or altered pattern of walking, such as a limp, walking with their “toes out”, this could suggest excessive pronation.
- If a person has a forward head posture where on side view, their ear is not in line with their shoulder and hip, there could be a link to a foot problem which alters their entire posture.
- Obvious shoe wear, such as excessive wear points or uneven wearing on one shoe or between both feet. Outside heel area wear is often a positive sign for over pronation.
- Inward or outward rotation of the knees, either in a normal stance, or during shallow squatting.
- Uneven callous formation on the soles of the feet, or rigid arches.
- Known imbalances in the pelvic muscles often correlate to a dropped long inside arch of the foot.
- Knee or hip pain when walking or exercising can suggest a misalignment problem in the feet.
