Custom made Orthotics
Orthotics are used to treat a variety of foot conditions and painful injuries.
This list demonstrates just a few of the many uses that orthotics can be used for:
Used to treat arch pain, heel pain and toe pain.
Correct or support the foot to treat walking or posture issues.
Stop feet from “rolling in” or “rolling out”
Prevent diabetic foot ulcers from forming by offloading pressure.
Prevent further development of bunions and other osteo deformities.
Relieve foot pain
Improve running gait and posture
Encourage correct posture and correct walking issues in children.
Relieve pressure on knee and hip abnormalities
Reduce strain on soft tissue and muscles
Provide comfort and support for people standing for long periods of time.
Can benefit the lower limb and spine alignment.
Improve symptoms of tired and aching legs.
Help to treat chronic corns and callous which arise from foot pressures and gait.
It is vital that you consult a podiatrist for orthotic advice. A Podiatrist is the only health care practitioner which has had extensive training in biomechanical assessments and gait analysis to determine the cause of your issue and how to properly accommodate and correct this in an orthotic device.
Many other practitioners will sell “off the shelf” devices, which can be just as costly without the extensive knowledge and training podiatrists have undergone.
