Orthotics in Moonee Ponds

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 Moonee Ponds, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. We recommend that you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you suffering from heel pain
  • Are you flat-footed or do you have fallen arches?
  • Do you have back and spinal pain or injury?
  • Do you suffer from knee pain?
  • Do you suffer from hip pain?
  • Do you have bunions, shin splints, calluses or hammer toes?
  • Do you spend most of your day minding your feet’s condition?
  • Do you enjoy playing sports and want to perform to your best ability?

If the answer to any questions is “Yes”, then its time to try our FREE foot assessment and our Foot Levelers 3D digital scanner to determine if orthotic therapy would be beneficial to your feet. Insoles purchased off-the-shelf are not tailored to your needs. You wouldn’t wear glasses from another person, so why put insoles not made for you?

Like our eyewear, insoles must be customised. Therefore offering the best possible support and relief from the symptoms and conditions mentioned above is something you will benefit from.Orthotics can support your the foot, legs knees, hips, and back. They can dramatically improve and maintain a healthy posture for your spine and the rest of your body.

Orthotics FAQs

When should I get custom orthotics?

If you have a diagnosed condition such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, or runner’s knee, then your healthcare practitioner may prescribe orthotics as part of your treatment plan. 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.

Is it possible to wear my orthotics in any shoe?

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?

Custom orthotics are made to fit your feet precisely, based on detailed measurements and analysis of your 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. These orthotics may still be beneficial, but they’re unlikely to offer the same benefits as custom orthotics.

How long do custom orthotics last?

The life expectancy of your orthotics varies depending on how often they are worn and what kind of activities you engage in. If they are well cared for, orthotics can last between 5 and 10 years. The orthotics may need to have their top covers replaced as they can wear over time.

What types of orthotics do you have?

There are many styles and types of orthotics that you can choose from, depending on your preferences.This includes full and half-length orthotics, slim orthotics suitable for narrower, lower or open shoes and sports orthotics for use during exercise or physical activity.

Are orthotics a good option for back pain?

Orthotics can alleviate back pain in some cases. Orthotics can be used to correct poor posture or alignment and offer support.

Will I wear orthotics all the time?

Each individual’s situation will determine how long you need to wear your orthotics. However, in general, if you are prescribed orthotics, it is recommended that you wear them as long as needed to achieve the desired effect. You may need to wear them for an extended period, or you might only need them for a short time. It all depends on your particular situation.
