Quality, highly effective custom-made orthotics
Do you suffer from heel pain, calluses, swelling or ankle twisting? You’re not alone, these are common problems that can cause discomfort and limit your daily activities. Your feet are the foundation of your body and, if not looked after properly, can lead to serious injuries and pain.
How orthotics are made
Custom-made orthotics are devices that are placed inside your shoes to help with lower limb injuries. They work by taking pressure off injured tissue, whether it be stubborn heel pain or an inflamed joint. Once pressure is taken off the injured tissue with an orthotic, that part of your body can begin to heal. This can help with injuries in your foot, ankle, knees, hips and lower back.
To create custom orthotics, our highly skilled practitioners will take a detailed history through a biomechanical assessment.
After a detailed biomechanical assessment, we may prescribe and make orthotics to suit your injury and daily activities. Using a CadCam 3D Scanner, we will take an impression of your foot.
Benefits of Custom Orthotics
Custom-made orthotics help treat injured tissues and provide additional support to the feet.
While they may help to alleviate your symptoms, they often work together with an exercise rehabilitation program to address underlying muscle weaknesses that may be contributing to your injury.
Not only do custom orthotics alleviate your current symptoms, but they may also offer long-term solutions for individuals suffering from conditions like Diabetes and Arthritis.
