Custom Orthotics in Greenacres
Posturepro Physiotherapy offer custom orthotic prescriptions in Greenacres including the local areas of Northgate, Lightsview, Walkley Heights and Modbury.
|Here at Posturepro physio we see many of the painful conditions of the foot knee and back resulting from inadequate support of the arch of the foot . Think of the feet as the foundation of your body – just like a house strong foundations are vital.
Pronated feet ( flat feet ) is one of the most common conditions resulting in pain and dysfunction in the feet, hips, knees and back.
Our state of the art Gait scan diagnostic scanning plate has helped diagnose many of the conditions of the feet that lead to deterioration and decreased function of the hip back knee and foot itself. Because the foot scan has picked up an existing or potential problem early on a bigger more complex problem has been averted later on.
Flat feet frequently results in poor posture in the spine resulting in low back and hip pain. So just getting the back or hip treated without addressing the foot issue will result in not addressing the main issue and could also result in the back or knee condition worsening over time and costing more to get it fixed.
Gait Scan Orthotics are an innovation in custom arch supports. The material used is strong but flexible ( thermoplastic) that allows for supreme comfort and ongoing support.
The orthotic sits discreetly inside of your shoe or sneaker and is not seen while providing great support to your feet barely even detectable . In fact my clients say after wearing them for a week that it is when they don’t wear them they realize the discomfort they had been putting up with before they got the orthotics.
When your arches are supported correctly the whole postural biomechanics will change for the better taking pressure off of the most affected joints in the lower limb.
Orthotics can help with all of these conditions:
The orthotics prescribed at Posturepro physiotherapy clinic are prescription made by podiatrists and tailored to your feet only.
They are designed to fit your foot perfectly
Most people who have never worn orthotics before are amazed at the instantaneous relief getting int0 the correctly fitting orthotic can bring.
When You Come To Our Foot Clinic
Our highly skilled staff will take a full medical history relating to your problem – we will then do an examination of any relevant areas focusing on finding the best solution to the problem. You will then be asked to walk over our Gait Scan Plate to get a precise image of your dynamic gait ( walking pattern). This scan will produce a theramal image of your feet and from this we will then analyze this to decide what the best way forward is for you. This whole process only takes about ten minutes and is painless.
If orthotics are indicated you will be advised. If we recommend orthotics for your condition it will be because we think they will be the best way to resolve your painful condition.
Gait scan orthotics have a lifetime guarantee on the structural shell and are the best solution for feet that either do not have adequate arch support or are creating other lower limb problems ( back hip and knee )
Our foot clinics are run on Monday and Wednesday after 2pm But you must book ahead.
