What are Orthotics?

An orthotic is a prescriptive support for your feet that is customized to help improve poor foot alignment and improve foot function. Custom orthotics are made specifically for your feet, to correct any imbalances or abnormalities in your foot structure.

Not only can they help with abnormalities and pain in the foot, they help with pain conditions and alignment in the lower limb and back. Orthotics fit into your shoe as comfortably as an insole.

How Orthotics work

Orthotics work to correct any abnormalities in the alignment and structure of the foot and ankle to make functional tasks such as running and walking more efficient. This is achieved by improving shock absorption, improving balance and improving muscular function.

Orthotics are also an effective treatment tool for a wide variety of foot and lower limb pain conditions.

Benefits of Orthotics

Sub-optimal foot structure and alignment can contribute to pain in areas elsewhere than just the foot. Many musculoskeletal conditions stem from biomechanical abnormalities that orthotics can help to improve.

Conditions that Orthotics can help improve are:

  • Pain in the foot (e.g. Achilles tendinopathy, arch pain, plantar fasciitis)
  • Leg and ankle pain (e.g. shin splints, recurrent ankle sprains)
  • Knee and hip pain (e.g. patella-femoral pain, bursitis)
  • Back pain

What is involved in getting Orthotics?

Book in with one of our physiotherapists for a full biomechanical assessment and a gait scan assessment. The comprehensive gait scan analysis together with your physiotherapists’ expert knowledge of anatomy and musculoskeletal function will tell you whether orthotics will be of benefit to you. If so, they will work with you to prescribe the perfect customized orthotic specific to you and your functional needs.

“Complete Wellness Physiotherapy provide an exceptional physiotherapy service. The one on one consults, comprehensive assessment and subsequent treatment plan I’ve been given have not relieved pain and addressed the underlying cause of my symptoms. Ongoing education is clearly a priority for these physios. Very happy with treatment and service. Highly recommended!”
