Gait Doctor is a clinic located in Auckland New Zealand that has made a solid reputation for itself, by not only designing highly impactful custom orthotics, but with the experienced team at the clinic led by Dr. Cherye Roche offering a very details bio mechanical analysis and report as part of an evaluation process. Dr. Roche love for her profession was born from the treatments that she received as an athlete growing up. That showed her first-hand how correcting even minor foot problems can have a dramatic impact on the rest of the body. This is why she went on to major in kinesiology and exercise physiology and then work as an athletic trainer at the highest levels and then into private practice. Dr. Roche says, “As a specialist in foot issues and associated problems, my goal is to identify the underlying biomechanical, neurological or physiologic causes of a patients’ condition, to help them resolve their condition, restore their normal function, enhance their performance, and help their body to express its optimal potential.”
Dr. Roche went on to say that one of the reasons why her treatments and custom orthotics are highly successful a majority of the time, is that she uses special technology to create her custom foot orthotics. A biomechanical analysis technology called GaitScan. The appointment that makes use of this advanced technology, starts with a detailed physical examination regarding posture, foot function, leg length, and other relevant assessments. This is followed up by having the patient walk across a pressure plate that is attached to the GaitScan machine. Once this is done it generates a gait analysis report and the results of that and the physical examination will help Dr. Roche and the patient decide if having a pair of custom orthotics made will help the patient resolve some of their foot & posture-related health issues. She stated that over 70% of people can benefit from having custom orthotics made for them.
This clinic only use the highest quality orthotics that are made in Canada and are the best on the market. The hard part of these orthotics come with a lifetime guarantee against cracking or breaking. Dr. Roche credits her expertise in the field, combined with the advanced technology and quality orthotics she uses, with helping her now see more patients than ever before. Some of the ailments that those who wear her custom orthotics may get relief from include Painful big toe (Hallux Rigidus), Ball of foot pain (Metatarsalgia), Morton’s Neuroma, Hammer Toe(s), Foot Arch Pain (Plantar Fasciitis), and Heel Pain (Heel Spur or Achilles Tendonitis).
