The best way to support the arch of the foot is by using orthoses which are shoe inserts designed to support, align or improve the function of the foot. They are commonly referred to as ‘orthotics’ and fit inside your shoes.

There are many different types of orthoses.

The orthoses recommended by your podiatrist are generally prescription devices, custom-made to suit your individual needs and biomechanics (the way your body moves).

Your podiatrist may prescribe orthoses for your particular foot problem after a comprehensive assessment, taking into account your own biomechanics, footwear and occupational and lifestyle factors.

Orthoses provide valuable long-term solutions in the treatment and prevention of corns, calluses and ulceration by redistributing the pressure of the body’s weight on the feet.

Orthoses can also help rehabilitation of acute and chronic foot conditions such as heel pain, tendonitis, recurrent ankle sprains and stress fractures by providing consistent postural control.

There are many different types and styles of orthotics available.

The podiatrists at Armadale Podiatry Clinic will assess your biomechanical needs, taking into consideration your lifestyle, occupation and exercise needs.

We also are happy to work within a budget so that the patient is able to receive the best possible outcome.
