Biomechanics and Orthotics

Sore feet can make you miserable!

Not all feet are the same shape and there are several reasons for this; genetics ( flat feet or carvus foot type), age related changes, injury, diseases like arthritis can all affect the structure and function of a foot and this can cause stress and strain on joints and soft tissue which can result in pain.

Podiatrists can assess foot function, diagnose foot pathologies and offer treatments that can improve performance and address pain.

Pain relief therapies often involved exercise programs, strapping, footwear advice and orthotic therapy.

We have an orthotic lab on site so any adjustments or modifications can be attended to promptly by the podiatrists.

Orthotics come in a variety of styles; from custom made to pre fabricated to firm or soft devices and it is our job to find the best match for you.
