A person's gait refers to their walking pattern and is dependent on the body's strength, perception, and coordination. The nervous system works with the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular system to allow you to get around. A gait abnormality prohibits a person from walking correctly or efficiently. This can lead to pain in the feet, legs, hips, and back. At Hiller Chiropractic, we are dedicated to correcting your gait through professional and highly effective chiropractic and massage therapy treatments.

Using Orthotics To Correct An Abnormal Gait
Your abnormal gait could progress into a more serious condition and increased pain in the feet, hips, and knees if not treated. We use custom orthotics in combination with other treatments such as corrective exercises, massage therapy, and manual manipulations to alleviate your symptoms and correct your walking pattern so you can get back to your daily activities. Orthotics work by supporting your body and taking away the dysfunction that causes the pain. They offer stability, arch support, and comfort for your feet, which allows you to walk normally.
