How do I know if I need orthotics?
If you suffer from any sort of foot, heel, ankle or lower limb pain, or even back pain, after standing for significant times, when walking, or when participating in sports, come and see us for a proper assessment by our specialist.
We’ll review your medical and surgical history including injuries, before undertaking a biomechanical examination of your feet and legs. Biomechanics is simply our way of taking a good look at your foot structure, alignment, range of motion and other features. Next, we’ll ask you to stand and walk so we can assess your movement (gait), and identify any imbalances or issues. We will also review x-rays and diagnostic tests when required to make a more comprehensive diagnosis.
Once we’ve got our assessment, we’ll take a detailed impression of your feet and create custom-made orthotics. The orthotics are made for your feet, and your feet alone, for a perfectly comfortable fit that keeps your feet fit and healthy, and you walking with a spring in your step again!
