Airport West Orthotics

Sometimes, if not most of the time, we tend to take our feet for granted until problems develop. Foot and lower limb conditions can affect your spinal health which can in turn affect the rest of your body. For residents in Airport West, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. These are the questions you need to ask yourself.:

  • Do you have issues with your feet?
  • Do you have fallen arches or flat feet?
  • Are you experiencing back or spine pain?
  • Do you suffer from knee pain?
  • Are you suffering from hip pain?
  • Do you have bunions? Shin splints? Calluses?
  • Do your feet issues trouble you the whole day?
  • 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. Insoles purchased off-the-shelf are not tailored to your needs. Getting sole liners off the shelf is not a good investment as they aren’t custom-made for your needs.

Like glasses, our insoles are custom-made from a specific prescription. Therefore offering the best possible support and relief from the symptoms and conditions mentioned above is something you will benefit from.Orthotics alleviates pain throughout the feet, legs, knees, hips, and back. They aid in maintaining and improving your spine’s health and other parts of your body.

Orthotics FAQs

When is it appropriate to get custom orthotics?

Your healthcare practitioner may prescribe orthotics to you if you have the following condition: plantar faciitis, Achilles tendonitis or runner’s leg. However, even if you don’t have a specific diagnosis, but experiencing pain in your feet, ankles, or legs, then you should consult with a professional about whether orthotics is right for you.

Can my orthotics work with any shoes?

Technically, you could put orthotics in any shoe, but it depends on the type and fit of the shoe as to how comfortable or manageable they are. Orthotics work best in shoes that have a higher heel counter. Orthotics should not be too tight. This can lead to more problems.

Are custom orthotics better than over-the-counter?

Custom orthotics are made to fit your feet precisely, based on detailed measurements and analysis of your foot structure and gait. This ensures that they provide the optimal support for your individual needs. In contrast, over-the-counter orthotics are mass-produced and often do not provide a perfect fit. Although they can still provide some benefits, they are unlikely to be as helpful as custom orthotics.

How long can custom orthotics be used for?

The life expectancy of your orthotics varies depending on how often they are worn and what kind of activities you engage in. Orthotics can last for anywhere up to 10 years if they are properly cared for. Over time, the top cover can begin to wear down and will need replacing before the orthotics.

What are the various types of orthotics?

There are many different types of orthotics, each with its specifications.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.

Do orthotics work with back pain?

Orthotics may aid in relieving back pain. Orthotics can correct bad posture or alignment to relieve pain and provide support.

Are orthotics necessary for my daily life?

The length of time you will need to wear your orthotics depends on each person’s situation. If you have been prescribed orthotics, you should wear them for as long and as necessary to achieve the desired effect. It could last forever or for a shorter time, depending on your condition.
