We Offer Three Types of Orthotics
We prescribe three types of orthotics based on the problem you’re experiencing, the goal that you’re wanting to achieve, and what we’ve found works best for our patients.
1. Custom Designed Orthotics
Custom-designed orthotics are very carefully thought out and prescribed by your Podiatrist – right down to the last millimetre. They’re prescribed following a thorough biomechanical examination of your feet and a mould/impression of the feet being taken so we know the precise location of all the bones, joints and muscles whose function we plan to adjust to produce the best outcomes in the shortest timeframe.
2. Prefabricated Orthotics
We have a variety of prefabricated orthotics available that have been pre-made with specific features, such as cushioning, shock absorption, arch support and more. These are used in cases where the best outcome for your feet can be achieved by the function of that specific orthotic, such as reducing foot and leg tiredness at the end of a long workday by improving the shock absorption through the heel and foot.
3. Custom Ankle Foot Orthotics (Braces)
Ankle-Foot Orthoses are custom-made for your foot and have design features that are medically proven to help with a variety of conditions, including drop foot and Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTDD). Scroll down to read more about our AFO’s below.
