What are orthotics?

Orthotics are custom made inserts that are worn inside your shoe to control abnormal foot function.

Orthotics solve a number of biomechanically related problems, for example, ankle and knee pain, pelvis, hip, spinal pain. This is achieved by preventing misalignment of the foot, which significantly alters the way in which the bones move within their joints.

How are custom orthotics made?

The process starts with the physiotherapist conducting a Biomechanical Gait analysis on a GaitScan system which is an electronic plate that records your gait pattern & explaining the results to you. The physiotherapist may also take a 3D cast of your feet in a foam box.

The orthotics are then custom-manufactured in the lab based on your foot impressions & GaitScan analysis.

Once the orthotics are made & delivered to the clinic, the physiotherapist will have you come in for a fitting & explain to you the wear & care of the orthotics.
