Understanding Orthotics

Orthotics are devices that are worn inside your shoes to correct foot problems and provide support. They can help with a variety of conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis or heel pain
  • Morton’s neuroma or ball of the foot pain
  • Big toe pain or Bunions
  • Knee pain
  • Shin splints

Custom Prescription Orthotics

Custom prescription orthotics are specifically designed to address the unique needs of your feet. Our podiatrists will carefully assess your foot structure, gait, and specific needs to create orthotics that are tailored to you. A Scan or cast is taken of your feet. These orthotics offer several benefits:

  • Personalised Fit: Custom orthotics are designed to fit your feet perfectly, providing maximum support and comfort.
  • Targeted Support: Our podiatrists can customise the orthotics to provide support where you need it most, helping to correct alignment issues and reduce the risk of injuries.
  • Lasting Relief: Custom orthotics are made from durable materials and are designed to last, providing you with long-term relief from foot pain and discomfort.

Prefabricated Orthotics

Prefabricated orthotics are pre-made devices that are available in standard sizes and shapes. While they may provide some level of support, they are not customised to your feet and may not address your specific needs as effectively as custom orthotics.

The Difference:

  • Customisation: Custom orthotics are tailored to your unique needs, while prefabricated orthotics are not.
  • Fit: Custom orthotics provide a perfect fit, while prefabricated orthotics may not fit as well.
  • Support: Custom orthotics offer targeted support, while prefabricated orthotics offer more general support.
