    Gosford-Podiatry-xray

    Specialising in all manner of foot problems, at Gosford Podiatry we can create custom-made orthotics for all ages to enhance the comfort of your feet.

    With expert knowledge in bio-mechanics, our team can take a mould of your feet and have custom inserts made to treat your foot pain.

    Created especially for you, our orthotics can be worn every day and will be designed for your feet and your feet only, to ensure the most effective results.

    ABOUT ORTHOTICS

    Just as contact lenses improve vision, so orthotics improve foot function. At Gosford Podiatry, we are experts in finding the best orthotic solutions for our clients.

    Custom orthotics are made from casts or moulds of your feet, with each orthotic exactly matching the contour of both individual feet. We also use angled posts or wedges which match the angular relationship between your leg, rear foot and forefoot to achieve the ultimate in precision.

    Unlike an arch support, custom orthotics move with your feet. They control different parts of your feet as you walk and, although they may look like simple pieces of plastic, orthotics profoundly affect your entire musculoskeletal system.

    They can protect the tender areas of your foot from the wear and tear of constant use, and can also delay surgery, as well as maintaining your surgical correction afterwards.

    ORTHOTICS FOR EVERYDAY

    Orthotic

    Orthotics come in a variety of materials, ranging from rigid plastics to soft foam.

    All of these materials can be shaped to fit your individual foot. Rigid orthotics offer the best control of movement, while softer ones provide better cushioning and protection.

    When prescribing your orthotics, Gosford Podiatry will make the best match depending on your individual needs.
