What are QUADRASTEPS®?
The QUADRASTEPS® are prefabricated foot orthoses based on different structural and functional aspects of the foot. There are 6 foot "types" influenced not only by walking pattern, but also by conditions and symptoms experienced in your daily life. Each orthotic is specifically designed to provide corrections for each foot type to alleviate pain and discomfort while improving the way you stand and walk.
Conditions that may benefit from QUADRASTEP SYSTEM®
Are all foot orthotics the same?
No, each foot type is unique and requires a specific orthotic design. Most over-the-counter or prefabricated foot orthotics are limited to a "one-shape-fits-all" arch support. They allow for some body weight to shift away from pain, but do not control foot movement or how it affects your body.
Why are my feet important?
Your feet are your foundation. Just the foundation of a home is important, so are your feet. It begins from the ground up. Your foot structure can contribute to many issues within the body including shin, knee, hip or back pain. Having a properly balanced body can improve your posture an strength while diminishing your pain.
Using the correct QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® you will have actual structural change in your entire body that a "one-type-fits-all" arch cannot match.
Here at Practical Therapy we can determine your foot type and find the right orthotic for you.
The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® are not just arch supports (for adults) they bring improvements to symptoms!
