Orthotics are inserts that are placed in your shoes to improve the function of your lower limbs. Common problems that can be managed with orthotics include bunions, big toe pain, arch pain, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, ankle pain, ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, medial knee pain, hamstring problems and lower back pain.
The Podiatrists at Jandakot Podiatry are experienced in the assessment of the way you walk and the alignment of your lower limbs. This type of an assessment is known as a biomechanical assessment. Podiatrists use the results of such an examinationto prescribe appropriate orthotics to improve your lower limb alignment and reduce pain associated with the conditions mentioned above.
Jandakot Podiatry has 2 options of orthotic therapy: semi-custom or full-custom. The full-custom orthotic process involves a 3D scan or plaster mould of your foot and a pair of orthotics being made to match your unique foot type and specific needs. Come see the Podiatrists at Jandakot Podiatry for further information about orthotics and how they can optimise your lower limb function.
If you want more information on how orthotics can help your feet, please call one of our podiatrists at Jandakot Podiatry, we would be happy to help!
