What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are customised devices that sit underneath the foot and inside the shoe to correct the way in which the foot moves.

There are many different types of orthotics available and this is because people have different needs depending on their shoes, activity levels, injuries, pain and foot type.

Orthotics may be casted from a mould or they may be designed according to a prescription for your needs.

At Performance Podiatry we specialise in:

  • sports orthotics
  • accommodative orthotics for diabetics or troublesome feet
  • orthotics for tight shoes, ballet flats or high heels.

The type of orthotics prescribed will be decided upon by you and our practitioner together.
