Podiatry (includes foot orthotics)

Foot orthoses (also called orthotics) are shoe inserts that help support the feet, improve foot posture and correct any imbalances. These can either be selected ‘off the shelf’ or made from scratch using a plaster cast of your foot.

Foot orthoses can help treat chronic foot or leg problems, including corns and calluses, foot ulceration, tendonitis and recurring ankle sprains. A Podiatrist can help design and fit foot orthoses to your feet.

You might need Foot Orthoses if you...

  • Experience hip and lower back pain when walking or standing for long periods of time
  • Experience pain in your feet or legs when walking or standing
  • Suffer from tendonitis
  • Want to correct foot problems
