Orthotics and Insoles

Orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support, align, or improve the function of the foot. They are used to treat a number of conditions that affect the lower limb. Depending on your particular complaint, orthotics can be cushioning, pressure relieving, or functional.

Personally customised orthotics can be made of a soft or hard material (including a lightweight carbon fibre option), full length, or three-quarter length, again depending on your particular foot problem.

Podiatrist Marie Whitfield will assess, diagnose, and then design and dispense a pair of orthotics for your particular problem and have you back on your feet and pain free as soon as possible.

How orthotics can help:

  • Offloading ulcers, corns, calluses or bony prominences
  • Limb length discrepancies
  • Balance and stability
  • Injury prevention and rehab
  • Support healthy foot and lower limb function
  • Increase shock absorption
  • Support children’s feet as they grow
  • Support tired aching feet.
  • Some knee, hip, back and ankle complaints
