Impact of poor foot mechanics
Whether you are very active or like a gentle walk each day, your feet are the ones doing the work and it is important they are working in an effective way.
The way you walk influences the muscles, joints, and ligaments of the lower limb so we aim to make sure you are walking as best as you can to limit the strain on these components.
This can cause and worsen existing injuries such as knee pain, ankle pain, hip pain and tendinopathies such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and post tibial dysfunction.
Our Podiatrist can test your foot mechanics, use slow motion visual analysis and 3D foot scans to assess the need for orthotics as well as customizing them for you to tailor to your foot health needs.
Why invest in custom orthotics?
Based on our assessment if orthotics are required we have a range of options available. Ranging from off the shelf, semi customized and custom orthoses we have an option to suite all foot needs and budgets.
Custom orthoses are the Gold Standard when it comes to controlling foot mechanic and preventing lower limb complications.
They aid this by controlling poor gait, optimizing your foot posture and offload over-loaded components of the foot. Plus, they are made just of you and you only.
Whether you have an injury, are looking to prevent further injuries, looking to optimize performance in walking/exercise or to realign your foot posture, book in for a free initial assessment so we can help you reach your health goals.
