Custom orthotics are made specifically for YOUR individual needs, to address your unique biomechanical inefficiencies, foot pain, injuries, etc. They are constructed after a detailed clinical assessment is performed by a Chiropodist or Podiatrist.
Orthotics will not permanently change the structure of your foot but they will correct how your feet and, by extension, your ankles, knees, and hips function, thereby providing significant relief. In some cases, orthotics can prevent or delay the progression of certain painful conditions, thereby decreasing pain. Some examples are plantar fasciitis, flat feet (overpronation), bunions, corns and calluses. Orthotics can also help alleviate knee, hip and back pain.
Orthotics last for different lengths of time based on the following criteria:
- How often you wear them
- Your weight
- Type of activities (E.g. High impact vs low impact)
- Care of orthotics
We recommend that you book a consultation with your Chiropodist or Podiatrist once a year, to assess your orthotics and to discuss any changes in your foot condition or lifestyle.
Custom Bracing at our clinic, we offer a wide range of custom and off-the-shelf bracing options for many orthopaedic conditions.
Bracing is generally considered a conservative treatment option which may enhance your return to activity. Not just for injured athletes, custom bracing can provide a level of protection not found in their sport without using the athlete employing personal custom bracing. We have selected premium quality custom products from companies like Sporlastics.
