Orthotics

Example OrthoticsA small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort. Our clinic has state of the art Gait Scan technology to help assess foot and gait problems. Sometimes if you are experiencing pain in your ankles, knees, hips or back the direct cause may be the function of your feet. Once the cause of pain is determined, we can establish if orthotics are required.

What are orthotics?

Orthotics or 'Orthoses' are inserts that comfortably fit into shoes; they are designed to support and improve the functioning of feet. Health care practitioners will prescribe orthotics to patients suffering from chronic foot or lower limb problems or to athletes to help maximize performance during sport. Prescription orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning the bones in your feet, restoring your natural walking pattern.

We use revolutionary equipment called GaitScan(TM) developed by The Orthotic Group to assess the way our patients walk. GaitScan is a state-of-the-art tool that is able to digitally map foot pressures during walking and running. Its computer software analyses the data collected from a pressure sensitive foot plate that the client walks or runs across.

The orthotics produced are at the cutting edge of technology and are developed using the latest evidence in scientific research and materials available. The high tech plastics used in the orthotic flex with your foot as you walk while maintaining shape under the supported area. This supported flexibility makes for a very comfortable orthotic. So comfortable that soon enough you don’t even notice they are there. They do all the work of supporting your feet and further up your body without any effort or thought from you.

 

Less pain with no effort. Just wear them and they help.
