Custom orthotics are a prescription orthotic made from a 3D impression of your feet. They’re made just for you to help improve, support or correct your foot posture or treat any foot pathology you may be experiencing.
Many injuries and conditions we see at our foot clinics occur as a consequence of abnormal foot and lower limb mechanics. Such abnormalities can have a significant impact on the feet, legs, pelvis and spine.
Custom orthotics are specifically designed to suit your particular condition, foot type, weight and desired activity. Generally, custom orthotics offer greater control than other types of orthotics, in addition to being more durable.
Biomechanical correction is achieved by using high density foams and plastics which initially may appear too rigid but, in time, usually become quite comfortable.
Research has shown that, in many cases, custom orthotics can relieve pain and prevent further disability.
Orthotics are used to treat numerous foot conditions. Depending on which condition you have, the design and the features of the device will help provide you with the best treatment outcome.
Here are some examples of foot conditions that can be treated with orthotics:
- PLANTAR FASCIITIS
- KNEE PAIN
- FLAT FEET
- HIGH ARCHES
- FOOT INJURIES
- ACHILLES TENDINOPATHY
