The Importance of Orthotics

The Importance of Orthotics
Maintaining healthy feet and ankles is a vital factor in ensuring an individual can stay fit and well. Orthotics are a practical everyday device that are designed to decrease pain in lower limbs by reducing force in the joints of the ankle and foot. By redistributing pressure on the feet, orthotics can biomechanically alter posture, gait and weight distribution, enabling better functioning, and keeping you on your feet!

Orthotics can assist an individual to walk and run comfortably and mechanically correctly, leading to the redistribution of pressure and force placed on the feet. The primary benefit of orthotics is that they can reduce excessive stress on the feet, as well as reduce pain and the risk of future injuries.

Orthotics are prescribed to a range of patients of all ages and activity levels. Our team at NDPE is guaranteed to issue orthotics that accurately suit you, treat your condition and improve your walking and running comfort.

Orthotics can be used in the treatment of:
•    Heel & arch pain
•    Plantar fasciitis
•    Knee pain
•    Ball of foot pain
•    Achilles tendon pain
•    Sore/Aching feet & legs
•    Long-term corns & callus
•    Lower back, hip and knee alignment issues

Everyone has different shape and size feet, that is why our team at NDPE use GaitScan to create custom orthotics to suit you! After a thorough biomechanical exam our physiotherapists will be able to identify and detect any abnormal foot function. Using our Gaitscan technology we will be able to create a clear, concise image and determine if you can benefit from orthotics.

You wouldn’t wear someone else glasses so why would you wear someone else orthotics! Contact our team at NDPE on 9874 8410 today for custom orthotics to suit you.
