What are orthotics?
Here in Sydney, orthotics benefit people from all walks of life: athletes, children, the elderly, and everyone in between.
Put simply, orthotics are orthopaedic devices that modify foot function to adjust and support misalignments and biomechanical foot disorders. Orthotics are slipped into your shoes, giving your feet the care they need to function at their full potential.
What conditions can a Sydney physio orthotics fitting treat?
An orthotics fitting in Sydney can help treat a whole host of conditions, including the following:
Leg length discrepancy
Biomechanical issues in the lower leg or feet
Lower back, ankle, heel, or arch pain
Reduced athletic performance, including poor running technique
We assess your personal limitations and take the time to understand your goals. After an examination, we can fit you with high-quality orthotics that relieve pain, improve performance, and enhance your day-to-day comfort. After your fitting, we are available to make any adjustments.
Are orthotics uncomfortable?
When you invest in a top-quality fitting service in Sydney, orthotics should not be uncomfortable at all. There may be some adjustment period, but after that is over, your feet should feel more comfortable than ever.
Our orthotics are crafted from high-density foam – they are moldable and sport appropriate, meaning you can continue keeping fit and doing what you love. Our local residents throughout the Hills District area, whether searching for an Epping or Dural physio, continue to come back for our top-quality service.
After my Sydney orthotics fitting, can I still wear my favourite shoes?
For the most part, yes. We offer both full-length and slim-fit orthotics, so you can continue wearing the shoes you love.
There will be some shoes – such as very tall high heels – that will not be compatible with your new orthotics. That doesn’t mean you have to give up wearing high heels forever. Just wear them in moderation without your orthotics, and use the orthotics whenever you wear compatible shoes.
