Foot orthotics are prescribed by podiatrists to alter forces and loads that contribute to foot and leg injuries. Load management is an integral component of injury rehabilitation and orthotics can play an important role.
Foot orthotics are specifically prescribed to reduce loads in injured tissues and can be manufactured out of a variety of materials to ensure they are comfortable and fit well into footwear. Foot orthotics are often only a part of your management plan, we usually use them in conjunction with other modalities including stretches, functional exercises, foot mobilisation therapy, dry needling, shockwave therapy and footwear modifications.
We use Melbourne based, Footwork Podiatric Laboratory (http://www.footwork.com.au/) to design and manufacture the orthotics we prescribe. They use the latest digital and CAD milling technology to produce the most accurate and comfortable orthotic product on the market.
