For residents in Tullamarine, orthotics services are readily available to address these issues. These are the questions you need to ask yourself.:

  • Do you get pain in your feet?
  • Do you have fallen arches or flat feet?
  • Are you experiencing back or spine pain?
  • Are you suffering from knee pain?
  • Are you suffering 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?
  • Are you a keen athlete and enjoy the challenge of playing sports?

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.

Therefore offering the best possible support and relief from the symptoms and conditions mentioned above is something you will benefit from.Orthotics can assist to relieve pain in the feet legs, hips, knees, hips and back.

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.

Can my orthotics work with 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. Also, remember to keep your orthotics in mind before using a show. As it can make it too tight to wear causing 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 can provide the best support possible for you. In contrast, over-the-counter orthotics are mass-produced and often do not provide a perfect fit. While they may still offer some benefits, they are unlikely to be a good tool for your feet’s needs as custom orthotics.

How long can custom orthotics last?

The length of time your orthotics will last varies from person to person and depends on how often you wear them and the type of activity you do. If they are well cared for, orthotics can last between 5 and 10 years. Over time, the top cover can begin to wear down and will need replacing before the orthotics.

What are the different types of orthotics?

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.

Can orthotics be used to relieve back pain

Orthotics may aid in relieving back pain. Orthotics are useful for correcting poor posture and alignment. They can also provide support for the spine and body.

Do I need to wear orthotics for life?
