HAMMER TOES   (Footmaxx Foot Orthotics Accommodate)


Definitions
Hammer toes bend or curl downward due to weakened muscles.  While the deformity can affect any toe, hammer toes most frequently occur in the four smaller toes.  

Solution
Hammer toes can be accommodated by adding a toe crest pad to your Footmaxx orthotics.  
The pad gently lifts and spreads the toes to relieve tension.  The Absolute Best Custom Foot Orthotics & Footwear! 





NEUROMAS   (Footmaxx Foot Orthotics Accommodate)

Definitions
A neuroma is a chronic irritation of nerves, usually between the third and fourth metatarsal.  Improper foot function is often to blame.  


Solution
To help with neuromas, Footmaxx uses a bar shaped pad called a neuroma pad.  The neuroma pad helps spread the problematic toe joints to relieve the pinched nerve. The Absolute Best Custom Foot Orthotics & Footwear!

BUNIONS  (Footmaxx Foot Orthotics Accommodate)

Definition

A bunion is a bony bump on the joint at the base of the big toe.  Over-pronation (when the
foot rolls inward excessively) can cause swelling and tenderness at this joint.  As the bump gets
bigger it causes the big toe to turn in toward the second toe.  

Solution

Proper shoes and custom orthotics help control over-pronation and eliminate further growth
of the bunion.  Footmaxx orthotics may help reduce pain in the mild bunion areas by allowing
extra room underneath the big toe.  This will help decrease irritation and reduce swelling.

CALLSUSES   (Footmaxx Foot Orthotics Accommodate)

Definition

Calluses are Areas of dead, hardened skin.  They form to protect the skin and structures
underneath from pressure, friction, and injury and may appear grayish, yellowish or bumpy.  
Calluses become a problem when they grow large enough to cause pain or impede proper foot
function.  
Solution

Calluses are accommodated by adding well cutouts or u-pads to your Footmaxx orthotics.  The
orthotic redistributes weight and reduces the friction and pressure that causes calluses.  The

PLANTAR FASCIITIS  (Footmaxx Foot Orthotics Accommodate)

Definition

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause o heel pain.  The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue
(ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes, supporting the arch of your foot.  
If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen and irritated.  Your heel or bottom of your
foot hurts when you stand or walk and the pain is most often acute in the morning.  

Solution

Footmaxx recommends an aggressive, more rigid orthotic to support the foot's arch.  This stops
the plantar fascia from stretching during over-pronation.  If the pain of plantar fasciitis is more
concentrated in the heel, Footmaxx recommends a heel cushion.  The Absolute Best Custom Foot

At FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Cape May, NJ we use the Metascan System to show you what your gait looks like in a series of simple, colorful graphics.  The Metascan captures the gait at 150 images per second, that's more than 20 times faster than the human eye.  This incredible speed allows Metascan to pinpoint how and at what point the foot is functioning abnormally as you walk so you can choose the most appropriate foot orthotics and/or footwear for you.   Each foot is assessed in depth with 19 aspects of gait analyzed.  

WHY SHOULD I GET SCANNED? 

Over time, an abnormal gait may lead to more serious issues.  With the help of Metascan technology, we will provide you with a diagnosis and may prescribe individually crafted, custom Footmaxx orthotics to help you walk the walk.  

WHY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS? 
Carefully formed to address the unique challenges of your feet.  Footmaxx custom orthotics give you the stability you need to reduce stress and strain on your feet and joints from the ground up.  Unlike over over-the-counter inserts, Footmaxx orthotics are clinician designed for your unique foot and health challenges with unique layers for optimum fit, maximum comfort, and superior control.  All this without added bulk or discomfort.  For the sportsmen and women, ask us about how Footmaxx orthotics can help with strength and athletic performance

Review of Dr. Scholl’s Custom Fit Arch Supports  Excerpted from: https://www.footankle.com/a-review-of-dr-scholls-custom-fit-arch-supports-and-foot-mapping-machine/ 

Don’t Be Fooled by the Dr. Scholl’s Foot Machine – Buyer Beware”


A few years ago, Dr. Scholl’s orchestrated a huge launch of their foot mapping machine. You have likely seen this unit in Fred Meyer, Walmart  [review of dr.
scholl's orthotic machine] and other locations. We have
 had many patients ask us about the Dr.
Scholl’s Foot Mapping machine and the
“custom” orthotics it recommends. They
promise “all-day relief of tired, achy feet”
yet the results fall far short of their advertise-
ments.

The “Dr. Scholl’s Orthotic Center” is, in our
opinion, a sales gimmick. As podiatrists, we
see these fads come and go. There are a
number of better arch supports that cost the
same or less. If you are in the Seattle area, contact us for an appointment and we will help you find the best over-the-counter or custom orthotics for your feet.

After we started getting questions from patients, we visited a Seattle pharmacy to evaluate the orthotic center and the “custom fit orthotics” that cost consumers big bucks. Below are our results and our recommendations on some better arch supports for the same or less cost.

What is Dr. Scholl’s Foot Mapping Machine and Does It Work?

Simply, it’s a device that measures pressure. You remove your shoes, step onto a platform with 2,000 pressure sensors that tell where you typically apply the most pressure when you’re standing. Based on this data, you are told which of their 14 orthotic insert models you should buy for your feet. The kiosk does measure pressure when standing, but there is no evidence that pressure readings provide any information that can help in choosing the shape of an orthotic.

Can Dr. Scholl’s “Custom” Orthotics Help Your Feet?


The orthotics Dr. Scholl’s sells are too soft to effectively transfer pressure. We evaluated all 14 orthotics the kiosk offers and found that while there are some shape differences in the different arch supports, they are so flexible that they collapse completely with a little hand pressure. Under body weight, they will all collapse. So it doesn’t matter if it is the “correct” shaped orthotic for your foot, once you stand on them, they will go flat. They can function as cushioning, but really do not provide support.

How 
Do the $50 Dr. Scholl’s Custom Fit Orthotics Compare to Regular Dr. Scholl’s Inserts?

We compared the $50 “custom fit” orthotics from the Foot Mapping kiosk to the standard Dr. Scholl’s arch supports sold in the foot care aisle. Other than a $30 price difference, they were all essentially the same – very soft and flexible – too flexible to provide any support. To be effective, an arch support must be somewhat firm, 
otherwise your body weight will simply flatten it out. Remember, the primary purpose of an orthotic is to reduce abnormal stress on tissue. For example, if the ball of your foot hurts then we want to transfer pressure off of the ball of your foot. To do this the orthotic must have some rigidity in order to transfer pressure from the ball of the foot to the arch of the foot.

The bottom line is that these “custom fit” inserts are not a good deal at this price. We feel they are an adequate $10 arch support. For $50 there are much more supportive arch supports on the market.

What are the Best Over-the-Counter Arch Supports?

Over-the-counter arch supports can in no way be considered customized to your feet – no matter how many machines you stand on or what you’re promised Dr. Scholl’s marketing. Custom orthotics are designed to control alignment and function of the foot in order to treat or prevent injury-causing motions such as pronation (rolling-in) and supination (rolling-out). They also act to make activities such as running, walking, and even standing, more efficient. Finally, they can act to redistribute pressure on the bottom of the foot to relieve pain from excessive pressure or calluses.  Information taken directly from an article produced by Dr. Larry HuppinPodiatrist specializing in biomechanics at Foot & Ankle Center of Washington (see reference above)

Dream Vacation at the Ideal Price

The FYZICAL team will assess your gait with the Footmaxx Metascan system to provide individually designed, custom Footmaxx orthotics to help you walk the walk and take a "Step Towards Comfort!"

Our FootMaxx dynamic software scans the foot 150 images per second tracking (20 times faster than the human eye) 8 key points along the bottom surface of the foot. Our dynamic display captures the pressure of both feet while walking. It allows us to see what we can’t see with x-rays or through visual observation. The pressure that your foot exerts on the pad is measured by the computer and turned into a picture of the foot. Only this is not one picture and  we can play it like a movie, following key markers that tell us what your foot is truly doing.

The FootMaxx dynamic software. Footmaxx, custom foot orthotics can be made from the digitized data translated through the Metascan system. The custom labs manufacture orthotics from the actual digital scan of your feet that were made from your walking scan.

The FootMaxx software analyzes the frame-by-frame distribution of foot pressures throughout each individual foot. Through the
useof of the computer scan, we determine the configuration of the orthotic modules. The overall aim of the orthotic therapy is to normalize the biomechanical patterns of the feet. So we make an orthotic for your foot in motion, to control your foot in motion.
