Custom Foot Orthotics in Adelaide

Not everyone needs orthotics. But they do have their place in an overall treatment plan for certain conditions. Orthotics are custom made to the shape of your foot. They are designed to reduce the force or strain on a given area. And they most commonly will be flexible.

Orthotics also form only a part of our overall treatment plan. What is a treatment plan? A treatment plan is a written document we prepare that lays out how we (the Podiatrist) & you (the client) are going to work together to relieve your pain & get your back to the activities you love doing. This plan will document the diagnosis (what’s wrong), the cause (why am I in pain), the treatments required (this may include one or more of the following – flexible orthotics, acupuncture/dry needling, foot mobilisation, cold laser therapy, stretching/strengthening exercises, footwear changes & activity modification) & a time frame for how long this problem may take to resolve. So an orthotic while important, is often only a part of the treatment plan.

Our orthotics are created by initially utilising the latest 3D foot scanning technology. Your Podiatrist will then spend considerable time designing your orthotic so that it not only will address the cause of your pain, but also be comfortable and fit your footwear. This information is then sent to our orthotic laboratory where the orthotic is made through the latest 3D printing technology. The benefit of using 3D printing technology is that it is extremely accurate, allows

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
