As part of your treatment plan we may use custom orthotic devices to assist in relieving foot and leg pain and improving foot function. These are made from an impression of your foot where we have placed your foot in an optimum position. This is done following an examination of your foot and lower leg in stance and in gait (walking) and a review of your footwear and activities. We can prescribe orthotic devices in soft materials, more firm materials or a combination of both with padding that is fully customised to suit your needs and footwear requirements. We are very experienced in prescribing and fitting orthotic devices from a range of materials to suit your occupation, sport and footwear. Sometimes an ankle- foot orthotic device may be custom made for more complex needs.
