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.
