5 Steps to the Perfect Fit

In our Body Align Lab you will undergo our proprietary and comprehensive Body Alignment Assessment in order to evaluate your entire musculoskeletal system. During the assessment we are looking specifically for inefficiencies that can put the body at risk for long-term complications, injuries and/or disease. Our Align Certified Clinicians will walk you through the assessment, paying close attention to every detail so that your Align OrthoticsTM are constructed perfectly.

Body Align Lab - Step - 01 - We Listen

We want to hear what brought you to us. What activities do you do? Do you ever experience pain or discomfort in your feet, knees, hips or back? Do you have medical concerns that may be related to your footwear? We also want to see your shoes; they can tell us a lot about what your feet are doing when you walk or run. We take the time to listen, evaluate and address any musculoskeletal health concerns you have.

Body Align Lab - Step - 02 - Watch you walk

Starting with a comprehensive postural analysis on our posture platform, we then observe your body alignment from the front, back and both sides to determine any asymmetries, postural compensations, and/or deficiencies. This is all completed barefoot so that our Align Certified Clinicians can determine how your body reacts normally, without any extrinsic guidance from footwear.

Your body alignment begins with the point of contact your sole makes with the ground. Using slow-motion video analysis and our high speed treadmill, our experienced Pedorthists have a trained eye and are ready to analyze your gait as they evaluate for body alignment imbalances. Is one leg longer than another? Do you lean to one side? Walk the Align Catwalk or have a run at our treadmill station and let your gait do the talking.

Body Align Lab - Step - 03 - Muscles

We check your flexibility, muscle strength, and conduct other testing as necessary to ensure your body is performing at its biomechanical best. If applicable, measurements for compression stockings or bracing are also completed at this time. If you would like some additional guidance, ask your Athletic Therapist about some foot strengthening exercises you can practice at home.

Body Align Lab - Step - 04 - Put your feet up

Sit down and put your feet up while we take a 3D laser and white-light scan of your feet in just a few seconds. Our Align Certified Clinicians will place your body into a neutral, non weight-bearing position that allows for ideal anatomical alignment of your hip, knee, ankle and foot. Capturing your foot’s image in this position provides the most accurate measurements needed to design your custom Align OrthoticsTM. Our methods ensure that your custom Align OrthoticsTM maintain your ideal body alignment whether you are standing, walking or running

Body Align Lab - Step - 05 - Function & Fashion

With your body alignment goals in place, we invite you into the Align Designer Showroom to select your footwear. Your professional shoe fitting experience ensures that the footwear complements your Align OrthoticsTM, meets our AO3 key criteria for the perfect fit, and is among the hottest fashion trends.
