Our podiatrists are trained to perform gait assessments and look at any lower limb mal-alignments through a comprehensive 'Biomechanical Assessment'.

Orthoses are devices used to realign the feet and legs, allowing them to function correctly. As all the structures of the body are connected, and as such, abnormal alignment of the feet may affect other parts of the body causing pain or deformity. Conversely though, orthoses can be beneficial for the foot, legs, hip and even lower back pain.

Orthoses differ from insoles or arch supports that may be purchased without prescription, as they are manufactured and prescribed for the individual.

Before prescription, your podiatrist will perform an assessment. This involves watching how you stand and walk, and testing your joints and muscles. Taking these factors into account, the orthoses are made to treat your particular foot type and problem.

Orthotics ca be used to treat the following conditions such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Heel spur syndrome

  • Flat feet and related pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Knee pain

  • Achilles tendonopathy

  • Server's disease in children

  • Out-toeing & in-toeing in children

  • Providing cushioning to forefoot pathologies

  • Morton's neuroma
