Functional Orthotics

Functional Orthotics

Custom foot orthotics carefully alter the biomechanical functioning of your feet to keep you moving at your best every day.

Orthotics are much more than just shoe inserts that add comfort and support to your feet. Every pair we prescribe is custom-designed by our podiatrists to help alleviate your specific foot pains and problems, reduce strain and pressure away from injured joints, bones, and tissues and optimise the way your feet and legs move with every step you take.

We do this using our extensive knowledge of the biomechanical functioning of the feet and legs, combined with the results of your comprehensive assessments that gives us a complete picture of how your lower limbs are currently functioning and where the weaknesses, abnormalities or deficiencies lie.

The result is a device that is inserted inside your shoe, replacing the shoe’s inner liner. Because orthotics are tailored to your condition, injury and daily activities, the length of time that the orthotics need to be worn will vary from person to person. Those that have sustained a lower limb injury may only need the orthotic until it has helped their injury completely heal. Others, that want orthotics to improve their foot function and decrease fatigue during sports, can continue to wear their orthotics during sporting activities.

We take great pride in our orthotics here at Sole Motion Podiatry and have seen them make a large difference in many of our patients lives, from young kids to athletes and the elderly.
