Orthotics are shoe inserts designed to align, support and improve the function of the foot. At Foot Imprint Podiatry we use the latest 3D foot scanning imaging technology to capture your foot in immense accuracy and detail.

Our custom orthotics are completely individualised and contour the feet precisely to enable efficient movement. A thorough examination of the feet, ankles, knees, hips and lower back will be performed to evaluate your unique foot structure and pathology.

We do not compromise on quality by using cheap and ill-fitting overseas products. Our custom orthotics are engineered within Australia and according to the highest quality standards in the industry.

How can Orthotics help?

The only contact point between the body and the ground is through the feet. The feet carry one’s body weight and effect the way we stand and move. Most individuals will fall into three categories of foot posture such as being a pronator, supinator or neutral.

With any category excess pressure and inability to absorb impact adequately can have an effect on the joints. Being a pronator or supinator can impact on the position of the knees, hips and lower back over time as tendons, ligaments, muscles and fascia which support the alignment become overused or weak. When the alignment of the knees or hips are impacted, it’s all reflected in the way the feet are functioning.

Orthotics adjust and assist with the correct alignment to reduce pressure and enable efficient movement. In combination a custom individualised strengthening and rehabilitation program will be provided to enable long term resolution and injury prevention.
