Foot Orthoses are shoe inserts designed to support, align, or improve the function of the foot and lower limb. Orthotics can be used by itself and with other treatments to help relief pain and biomechanical anomalies. Some of the most common conditions are; Flat feet, High Arch feet, Arch Pain, Heel Pain, Shin Splints, Knee Pain, Hip Pain, Lower back Pain, Sciatica and many other common conditions that we see on regular basis. At Castle Hill Podiatry we take a Holistic approach and treat many problems in conjuction with Physiotherapist, Osteopaths and Chiropractors.
Custom Foot Orthotics can be made in various shapes and materials depending on what we are treating, age, weight, sports and most importantly footwear. Advances in technology enables your podiatrist to prescribe a device specific to the activities that you participate in the most. From walking to running, football and more, orthotics can help you perform at peak efficiency.
At Castle Hill Podiatry we use the latest 3D foot scanning system DELCAM orthomodel with state of the art Matcam cutting technology machinery to produce your orthotics to outmost perfection and precision and its all done at our premises.
We use the latest gadgets to assess your gait or running gait and prescribe up to date custom orthotics for your needs. We have our own Custom Orthotic Lab at our Castle Hill Practice which means you get the latest and best materials available in the market all made by us. We are not controlled by an external orthotic lab and hence can produce an orthotic device with specific material for your needs.
