Orthotic

Orthotics are custom made devices designed to alter the anatomical position and function of the foot. These include simple heel raises, metatarsal pads, customized orthoses (insoles) and ankle foot orthoses. Orthotic devices may be simple over the counter type shells customised for your particular needs or they may be full prescription devices made from 3 dimensional casted models of your feet.

As a three dimensional "functional device" an orthotic is designed to specifically change the function of your foot. They help place the foot in a biomechanically correct position allowing the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones to work more efficiently and therefore reduce and limit abnormal forces that cause pain and discomfort elsewhere in your body.

 

The cost of orthosis varies so an appointment is always required to assess what device is appropriate for you needs. Gait analysis can be useful to assess not only what treatment is required but can be used to assess the effectiveness of that treatment.
