Orthotics for you or your children

Orthotics may be the answer to your or your children's sore and painful feet? Our feet were originally designed to function on soft surfaces like dirt, sand and mud not the concrete, tile or hardwood floors we all typically walk on today.

The way we walk and force reflected by these hard surfaces commonly increases your risk for injury. Foot orthoses (commonly known as ‘orthotics’ or ‘arch supports’) are used to improve the overall function of your feet and lower legs. They do this by improving your foot’s alignment in relation to the lower legs, the knees and hips to ultimately optimize the efficiency of your walking and running patterns.

All our podiatrists are highly skilled in biomechanical assessment and treadmill gait analysis enabling them to determine whether an orthotic device is most appropriate and which type would be most specific to your condition. At our podiatry clinics, we offer a range of different types of orthotics including custom made, semi-custom and prefabricated orthotics, to accommodate all foot types and different foot conditions.

Our orthotics are manufactured in Australia by Footwork Podiatric Laboratory (Keysborough). Footwork use the latest in CAD CAM technology (computer aided design, computer aided manufacture) and premium quality materials imported from Germany to provide a superior quality product.

If you want to find out more about orthotics or want help returning back to those activities you love, make an appointment with one of our podiatrists today.

Our orthotics services are available at our Narre Warren, Pakenham, Hastings and Chelsea clinics. For the people of Frankston requiring orthotics please use our Chelsea clinic.
