Orthotics/Foot orthose

Our procedures and expertise


Foot orthotics are used by podiatrists and other health professionals to assist in the management of your specific condition or concern. They are used to redistribute loads and to assist in reducing the stress (or pain) at your foot so that you can continue with your rehabilitation, daily needs or reduce your symptoms. They are not necessarily a ‘life sentence’ and should be reviewed as part of your ongoing management to see whether they are providing the benefits they were once designed for.

Common conditions managed with foot orthoses are:

Arthritis (Osteo, Rheumatoid, Psoriatic)
Heel pain
Shin pain (shin splints)
Knee pain (i.e. arthritis, patella femoral joint, patella tendinopathy)

Just because you have been issued with foot orthoses does not mean you need to wear them for ever, or that what you have is necessarily the best option for your current condition/status.

We are happy to review your current devices and:

Provide advice to their most appropriate usage
Repair any top covers or damaged sections
Assist in transitioning with rehabilitation to use them less

Treating all individuals from the elderly to athletes, teenagers to smaller children. Helping to manage conditions from heel pain and sporting injuries to diabetes assessments, general foot care and toenail surgeries
