Orthotics

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-made and fitted to suit:

  • Your individual foot
  • The footwear in which they will be used
  • The problem for which you are being treated

How do orthotics work?

Custom thermoformed orthotics provide a perfect fit between the soles of your feet and the insides of your shoes. They support your feet in a healthy natural way (like walking barefoot on the beach) and prevent abnormal pronation. Orthotics reduce the forces which cause excessive stress and pain in the body.

 

They improve the alignment of the foot and leg so that these forces are re-directed to structures that can absorb them effectively.Custom fitted orthotics provide total contact stimulation to sensory nerve endings to improve reflexes, balance and the posture of your body. Click for more on Orthotics

Effects from orthotics

When using orthotics you will notice some or all of the following effects:

 

A significant reduction in your symptoms within two weeks and sometimes immediately, and a feeling that you are walking or running slightly differently. Increased comfort and less fatigue when walking or running will also be evident. More effects include:

  • An improvement in the alignment of you foot and leg
  • Improved balance and stability
  • Improved posture

At Children’s Podiatry Clinic we are able to assess your
child and provide appropriate treatment options and advice.
