Custom Made Orthotics
What are orthotics?
Orthotics Therapy is used to ease or treat specific foot problems and reduce the progression of foot deformity as a preventative measure. An Orthotic is a therapeutic device that goes inside a shoe or sandal to correct anatomical deformity and malalignment.
We assess an individual’s feet by completing the entire patient history and thorough examination to identify the necessary components that are crucial to determine the correct angle, alignment, and modifications of the orthotics. This treatment is suitable for a range of ages from young children, teenagers, adults and the elderly.
How is it different from over-the-counter orthotics?
One of the main differences between custom-made and over-the-counter orthotics is the level of correction that can be achieved. Quite often, pre-made orthotics arch height and angle of correction are not sufficient to provide significant relief to presenting symptoms.
What makes us different to other custom-made orthotics?
Orthotic “Prescription” is the key to the success of comfortable and effective orthotics. An incorrect prescription will lead to pain, discomfort and ineffective alignment correction.
