Having issues with your lower limbs and foot can impact your spine’s health, which can affect your whole body. For residents in Aberfeldie, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. We ask you to consider these questions:

  • Are you experiencing foot pain?
  • Do you have flat feet, or fallen arches?
  • Do you have back and spinal pain or injury?
  • Do you have knee pain?
  • Are you experiencing hip discomfort?
  • Are your bunions, shin splints, calluses, or hammer toes causing you discomfort?
  • Do you spend most of your day minding your feet’s condition?
  • Are you a keen athlete and enjoy the challenge of playing sports?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, take advantage now of our FREE Foot Assessment and Foot Levelers 3D Digital Foot Scanning to find out if orthotic therapy might be the appropriate procedure for you.

Orthotics FAQs

When should I get custom orthotics?

Your healthcare provider may recommend orthotics if you have Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, or runners knee. Even if you don’t have these conditions, your healthcare provider can still recommend orthotics, especially if you feel pain in your feet or ankles.

Can I use custom orthotics while wearing any shoes?

Technically speaking, orthotics can be used in any shoe. But it depends on what type of shoe you use and how comfortable they are. Many people find that shoes with a higher heel counter (the part that comes up around your ankle) work better with orthotics, as they keep the orthotics in place. You also want to ensure that the orthotics don’t make the shoe too tight; if they do, they can cause more problems.

Are custom orthotics more useful than over-the-counter products?

Your orthotics are custom-made to fit your feet. This is done based on precise measurements and analysis of the foot structure and gait. They will provide the most appropriate support for your needs. Over-the-counter orthotics, on the other hand, are mass-produced and may not be a good fit. Although they can still provide some benefits, they are unlikely to be as helpful as custom orthotics.

How long do custom orthotics last?

The amount of time that your orthotics last depends on how much you use them and what activities you do. If properly maintained, orthotics can last up to 10 years. The top cover may start to wear out over time and will need to be replaced before the orthotics themselves need to be replaced.

What different types of orthotics are available?

There are different styles of orthotics available, depending on your individual needs.You can choose from full and half-length orthotics or slim orthotics to fit your narrower, lower, or more open shoes. Sports orthotics are also available for you to use while exercising or doing physical activity.

Are orthotics a good option for back pain?

In some cases, orthotics provide relief for back pain. Orthotics can be used to correct poor posture or alignment and offer support.

Do I need to wear orthotics for life?

The length of time you will need to wear your orthotics depends on each person’s situation. However, in general, if you are prescribed orthotics, it is recommended that you wear them as long as needed to achieve the desired effect. It could last forever or for a shorter time, depending on your condition.
