Custom Foot Orthotics at Pod Fit Podiatry Adelaide
Custom foot orthotics are medical grade devices which provide support and stability for many types of toe, foot, ankle and leg pains. By encouraging healthy movement and changing pressure from the ground up, orthotics help to relieve many types of foot and leg pains. They are made after your Podiatrist has performed a thorough assessment of gait and foot function. The orthotics then are made to your specific needs and problems.
Pod Fit Podiatry is known across Adelaide for our more comfortable, flexible feel and slim orthotics. Our custom inserts are made from PA11 Nylon, which is a premium natural organic resource. This enables us to be more environmentally sustainable, reducing our carbon footprint. It also allows our clients to have both comfortable and effective orthotic devices.
Your Podiatrist will discuss what shoes are most suitable for both your pains and concerns, as well as for your orthotics to fit into. Sneakers and boots can fit an orthotic easily. This includes soccer and football boots too.There are some shoes which may not be suitable for orthotic treatment, for example some ballet flats and open footwear. Your Podiatrist will guide you with footwear options best suited to your issues.
