What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-designed medical devices that are made to improve and correct the mechanics of tissues and joints in the feet. These devices are custom-shaped and sized to fit the individual’s foot and are worn inside the shoe like an insole. Orthotics work by correcting imbalances, strains, stresses, and pains in the feet, and can also alleviate pain and discomfort in other areas of the body, such as the knees, hips, and back. 

A range of conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches, and bunions, can be effectively treated using orthotics. These conditions can result in discomfort and pain in the feet, as well as the legs, hips, and back. Orthotics work by correcting the mechanics of the feet, providing relief from pain, and enhancing mobility. 

A qualified healthcare professional, such as a podiatrist or physiotherapist, prescribes orthotics after conducting a thorough assessment of the patient’s feet and related symptoms. The healthcare professional takes into account the patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and objectives when determining the most suitable treatment plan. Orthotics can be made from various materials, such as foam, rubber, and plastic, and can be custom-designed to fit the patient’s foot and specific condition.

Our Process

  1. Examination and Gait Assessment

    Your physiotherapist will conduct a thorough examination of your feet, ankles, and gait to determine the current action and movement of your feet and lower limbs. We will also collect information about your history, symptoms, circumstances, and any previous treatments you have undergone to determine the best approach for your particular needs. 

  1. Computerised Gait Analysis
    To conduct a highly precise scan of your movement, we use the most advanced technology available. The Computerised Gait Scan gathers information on the timing, pressure, and other unique characteristics of your gait, providing a detailed analysis that cannot be obtained through observation alone. Based on this information, we can determine whether orthotics can be helpful in your treatment plan. 
  1. Casting your Custom Orthotics
    If we believe that orthotics could be useful for you, we leverage the data from your gait analysis to create a dynamic cast of each foot – eliminating the need for plaster or foam casting. The dynamic cast is then forwarded to a team of technicians who produce a pair of orthotics specifically for your feet. We provide an assortment of orthotic styles, from standard sizes to thicker orthotics for support during sports or lighter options that can fit into dress shoes. 
  1. Using your Orthotics
    Once you have obtained your new orthotics, our trained physios will guide you on their best use, including an injury rehabilitation plan to assist in your recovery. Additionally, treatments may include hands-on physiotherapy and at-home exercises to complement your orthotics.
