Many times, if not all, we take advantage of the comfort our feet brings until we experienced issues with it. Lower limb and foot problems can harm your spinal health, which can in turn affect the rest of your body. For residents in Pascoe Vale, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. These are the questions you need to ask yourself.:
If your answer to any of these questions is a “Yes,” then take advantage of our FREE foot assessment and Scan on the Foot Levelers 3D digital foot scanner to see if you would benefit from orthotic therapy. The insoles you get off the shelves are not made to order. Getting sole liners off the shelf is not a good investment as they aren’t custom-made for your needs.
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 aid in maintaining and improving your spine’s health and other parts of your body.
Your healthcare practitioner may prescribe orthotics to you if you have the following condition: plantar faciitis, Achilles tendonitis or runner’s leg. 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.
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. 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. It is important to ensure that your orthotics do not make the shoe tighter than necessary.
Orthotics can be made specifically to fit your feet based on detailed measurements and analysis. This allows them to address your specific needs. Over-the counter orthotics are often mass-produced and do not always support your feet’s needs. While they may still offer some benefits, they are unlikely to be a good tool for your feet’s needs as custom orthotics.
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 as long as 10 years if properly maintained. Over time, the top cover can begin to wear down and will need replacing before the orthotics.
There are many styles and types of orthotics that you can choose from, depending on your preferences.There are many styles available, including full-length and half-length orthotics, narrow orthotics for shoes with narrower, lower, or open toes, as well as sports orthotics for exercise and other physical activities.
Orthotics may aid in relieving back pain. Orthotics can be used to correct poor posture or alignment and offer support.
Each person’s conditions will dictate the length of time that your orthotics should be worn. In general, orthotics should be worn for as long or as is necessary to achieve the desired effects. It could last forever or for a shorter time, depending on your condition.
