During your evaluation Dr. Sommer will use the most appropriate diagnostic methods including:

X rays

Digital X-Rays

Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Ultrasound Imaging is a diagnostic technique that allows us to see parts of the foot and leg that are not visible with standard X-rays.

Ultrasound allows for dynamic imaging of the foot and ankle with images similar to those obtained from MRI's or CAT scnas. Ultrasound aids in the diagnosis of many foot and ankle problems.

Gaitscan

Gaitscan

Gaitscan

Gaitscan is the combination of state of the art computer hardware and software that helps Dr. Sommer detect abnormal foot function to determine if you need orthotic therapy.

Your foot is in contact with the ground for a very short time when walking or running. The Gaitscan system records information from thousands of tiny sensors as you walk or run across the pressure plate.
