What are orthotics?
Have you ever seen the sole inserts that people wear on the inside of their shoes?
Those are called orthoses and they are special external devices designed to influence the functional and structural characteristics of the skeletal and neuromuscular system.
Why do I need orthotics?
Orthotics can be used to treat a variety of conditions. These devices, often prescribed and custom-made, can correct biomechanical issues with the foot that affect the way you stand, walk, or run.
Orthotics can also assist in treating foot pain associated with diabetes, arthritis, bursitis, and plantar fasciitis, and can even help avoid surgery associated with flat feet.
What can I expect from an orthotics treatment at Feet First?
Some conditions require a solution that off-the-shelf orthoses simply can’t treat. That’s where a full-service orthotic treatment comes into play.
Traditional plaster moulded orthotics are messy, time-consuming and not easily replicable. With the state-of-the-art equipment available at Feet first Podiatry Centre, the video gait analysis, pressure mapping, 3d foot scanning and 3d printed orthotics mean that not only are you getting accurately diagnosed for orthotics, but you are getting orthotic inserts that are specifically designed for your feet.
For best-in-class orthotic diagnosis and treatment, book a consultation with Angus today, and say hello to happy, healthy pain-free feet.
