Improve your foot pain outcomes with orthotics.
If you need more support and comfort for your feet, or management for foot, ankle, back, hip and knee pain, custom orthotics designed just for you as part of your Physiotherapy treatment plan may be just what you need.
At Physio Inq Engadine we offer prescription orthotics made from a dynamic 3D impression of your feet. During a consultation with your Physiotherapist, it might be indicated that custom foot orthotics would improve your individual foot posture and pain.
Custom made orthotics can be used by Engadine/Sutherland Physiotherapists to help manage many issues including:
- Plantar fascia pain
- Ankle impingement
- Metatarsal pain
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Abnormal foot and lower limb mechanics
- Frequent foot strapping tape
Since the orthotics are custom designed by professional prescriptions to suit your individual biomechanical and lifestyle needs, you get the best results.
What does it mean to get orthotics?
To prescribe orthotics, Physio Inq Engadine Physiotherapists use a gait plate, and gait scanning technology.
Gait plates contain a few thousand sensors that measure the forces going through the foot during the gait pattern. You are measured walking barefoot across the sensors on both sides, as well as standing. Your Physiotherapist can read the report from the technology and explain the results to you, explaining whether and how the custom orthotics would be beneficial for you. The report is sent to our suppliers, where podiatrists manufacture the individual orthotics using your specific gait analysis data.
