Custom made orthotics help our feet create a better foundation and distribute body weight correctly, resulting in a healthier body. Our feet are what move us throughout the day! We stand, walk, and run on them. If our feet don’t function at peak efficiency, the rest of our body can’t either.
Step 1: You will walk across the Footmaxx force plate, which contains 960 capacitance points. Your walk is scanned by a computer 30 times per second, allowing for 3/100 second interval analysis of each footstep.
Step 2: Dr. Akhavan will review your preliminary test results with you, taking the time to explain the gait line and the 2D and 3D images. For more severe conditions, additional examinations will be recommended.
Step 3: Dr. Akhavan will send your details to Footmaxx and request a gait and pressure analysis report and/or prescription orthotics.
Step 4: Once at the Footmaxx lab, your file will be fully analyzed by the Footmaxx diagnostic software, which uses advanced algorithms to analyze your details and compare them to normal gait patterns.
Step 5: A semi-rigid orthotic module is intrinsically posted, forming and molding the angle and height of the arch of the orthotic module based on the prescription needed to correct your abnormal bio-mechanics.
Step 6: Footmaxx materials are carefully selected to offer wearability and durability.
Step 7: The orthotics are sent to the Footmaxx quality control department where they are carefully checked against Dr. Akhavan’s instructions and test results.
Step 8: When your orthotics are approved by quality control, they are shipped to Dr. Akhavan. Your digital patient data is permanently stored at Footmaxx, which will make your progress easy to track.
If you have sore feet, joints or muscles, want to improve your posture, or simply want to maximize your body potential, orthotics may be right for you!

For approximately 25 years I have experienced varying degrees of pain in my neck and back and have tried a number of different treatments to eliminate the discomfort. Now, to my amazement and delight, you have treated me with Active Release Therapy and my neck is completely free of pain.
Over a period of approximately eight weeks you applied this treatment to my neck and I have not had a moment of discomfort since my last treatment.
I am so impressed with your technique, skill and commitment to chiropractic that I am looking forward to further treatments – with the goal of a completely pain-free back. Thank you!
