Custom Orthotics Essendon & Blackburn
At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic we specialise in treating biomechanical issues of the foot and lower limb with custom-made, corrective orthotics.
The way the feet function has a direct influence on the rest of the body. If there is an issue with the foot’s mechanics it can contribute to many pathologies not only in the foot but throughout the rest of the body. Our orthotics are made either using the Foot Alignment System™ or 3D scanning to provide an orthotic that is not only supportive but extremely comfortable.
What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are supportive and corrective devices designed to apply direct forces to certain aspects of the foot to improve postural stability, decrease certain tissue stresses and improve foot and lower limb function. They are made from many different materials depending on the individual’s activity levels and pathology. Our orthotics are specifically designed to fit discreetly inside your sports or dress shoe.
Our digital gait analysis system allows accurate assessment of any biomechanical problems that are causing pain or other concerns. By assessing you either walking or running on a treadmill we can detect the exact cause of your problem and address it with the best techniques available. We use strategically-placed cameras to record your gait and then process the information using state-of-the-art software. We can then make this footage available to you or other clinicians for further examination.
