PromoPT plays an expert role in designing custom biomechanical orthotic devices. Physical therapist Michel Kane is a nationally recognized speaker on the evaluation of the foot and lower extremity and on the design and application of biomechanical orthotics.
Many of the injuries we treat are created or sustained by the way our patient’s stand, step, walk, stoop, bend, squat, twist, jump and run. Our Physical Therapy staff has developed an expert knowledge and understanding of the biomechanics of walking, and foot function. Proper function of the foot is necessary for normal posture and normal movement. Abnormalities in foot structure or in the way it functions can create foot pain as well as problems in the shins, knees, hips and low back.
