About Orthotics

What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are orthopedic devices that are used to treat a variety of biomechanical foot disorders. Whenever a person's foot is not functioning as designed, the weight of the body is not properly transferred and distributed. As a result, pain and tenderness can develop in the foot, ankle, and the surrounding muscles. Orthotics work to relieve pain by realigning and supporting the ligaments and bones of the foot properly, so that the foot can function as normal.

Our clinicians use state of the art manufacturing equipment to produce custom made orthotics on site and in most cases you can leave with the device on the same day. Custom made orthotics are specifically designed to meet the needs of the individual patient.

Our Orthotics can be made to suit all styles and types of shoes and boots. We deal with all types of footwear from everyday shoes, fashion shoes and children's shoes to sports shoes, work boots and protective footwear.

What do Orthotics do?

Orthotics are used to reduce pain, redistribute pressure and to prevent problems with our feet. Orthotics are also used to restore natural foot function and to cure conditions such as flat feet.

Whatever your specific requirements we can accommodate them.
