Sometimes our feet need a little extra support to navigate their way through life, and that’s where custom orthotics come into play.
Orthotics are customised shoe inserts that support your foot right where it needs it most. Ideal for patients who suffer from conditions like arthritis, flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and back pain, orthotics help the foot obtain correct alignment and function, as well as improve overall posture. Used in conjunction with other podiatric therapies, orthotics are an invaluable asset for people with foot pain.
Nothing compares to custom orthotics
Sure, you can purchase generic, ‘one size fits all’ orthotics at your local chemist, sports or shoe store, but unless an orthotic is created specifically for your foot’s unique structure, you will not get the required support and comfort in the long term. In contrast, the attention to detail in a custom orthotic is second to none, and our Brighton Road clinic has the latest equipment to provide accurate imaging of your foot and manufacturing of your orthotic.
First, our podiatrist will assess your feet’s biomechanics and diagnose the root cause of your pain. Then we can discuss orthotic options, whether our Adelaide manufactured Carbon Fibre and Polypropylene orthotic or our in-house EVA orthotic.
Then, your feet will be scanned using 3D digital scanners to record the precise contours and measurements of your feet – this will ensure a perfect fit. A 3D model of your feet, with an accompanying prescription, will be manufactured in our own laboratory and can be manufactured and available for dispensing within 24 hours. Perfect for our country patients! Carbon fibre or polypropylene orthotics are made in an Adelaide workshop.
Once the orthotics are complete, you’ll come in for a fitting to ensure the orthotic is comfortable and effective. Our podiatrist will make any necessary adjustments and discuss orthotic care.
Heat mouldable Orthotics
Our Podiatrists also have access to heat mouldable orthotics. This provides another option for patients. These orthotics are supplied to Brighton Road Podiatry in a range of different sizes, shapes and options.
Our Podiatrist selects the option best suited to your needs and then further customises the orthotics to address your issues. This is a more affordable option and still receives health fund rebates.
All that’s left is for you to enjoy an active lifestyle knowing your feet are receiving the best care possible. So book in your initial consultation with the expert team at Brighton Road Podiatry today.Book Now
