Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, it may cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics. These changes can put additional stress on joints higher up in your body and lead to more serious problems.
Custom orthotics looks like insoles, but are precision medical devices that are designed to adjust and control the function of the foot and its alignment with the lower leg. They help by correcting your walking pattern by altering the angles at which the foot strikes the ground.
Your qualified physiotherapist will complete a biomechanical assessment and take a cast impression of your feet. Your cast and prescription are sent to a professional orthotic laboratory where your orthotics is made by technicians with qualified training and qualifications. The orthotics is individually constructed from a mold of your feet.
Many extended health packages include coverage for customized orthotics if prescribed by a physiotherapist or physician. Check with your extended health administrator for coverage and requirements.
