An orthotic is a device which sits comfortably under the foot to change pressure and loading to reduce injury risk and maximise performance.
Many shoes come with a foam innersole designed as a one-size-fits-all comfortable platform to walk on. Where a custom orthotic differs is
A custom orthotic differs in that it’s designed to fit your individual biomechanical profile. The Orthotic sits inside your shoes and addresses your specific risk factors and injury history.
To determine your needs for a custom orthotic, we take into consideration joint range and quality of movement, injury history, strength, flexibility, and the axis and position of your joints, in addition to factoring in your day-to-day or competitive activities.
A 3D cast of your foot is taken and, combined with your custom orthotic prescription; we fabricate comfortable, durable and effective custom orthotics.
They can be used to treat pain related to many different overuse conditions which develop in the feet, legs, and lower back as a result of our biomechanics and gait.
