What are orthotics used for?
Orthotics are prescription based medical inserts that you wear inside your shoes. They are designed to correct your lower limb biomechanical issues including posture, how you stand, walk and run.
Orthotics are also useful in treating pain caused by medical conditions including plantar fasciitis, arthritis, tendonopathy, bursitis, Morton’s Neuroma and Knee pain among other foot and lower limb conditions.
Are custom orthotics worth it?
Insoles come in generic over the counter and fully customised versions. Here’s the thing – you are not generic! What works for you may not work for someone else. Each individual has different biomechanics, activity levels, types of pathology and pain, weight, age and footwear etc. Over the counter inserts may in fact make your condition worse, or not help at all.
Since orthotic treatment should not be the same for everyone, you need tailored care which is precisely what custom orthotics provide for your body.
Custom made orthotics are an investment in your lower limb health that returns benefits to you over time. Over the counter inserts are cheaper but are often made with lower quality materials and are not specifically designed to assist with your particular issues.
What are the best orthotics?
The best orthotics are those designed specifically for you by a highly qualified and skilled Podiatrist.
During the consultation, your Podiatrist will undertake a thorough examination that includes a biomechanical assessment (the science of human motion) including numerous weight-bearing and non-weight bearing tests and gait (walking) analysis. You Podiatrist will then take highly accurate 3D scans of your feet and write a prescription for our lab including all the parameters you need in a great pair of orthotics.
The manufacture time for custom orthotics is normally around 7 days.
At Grace Podiatry, we believe that we provide the best orthotics on the market. For your new custom orthotics contact Grace Podiatry or book online.
