Orthotics Treatment in Adelaide

Do you suffer from constant aching in the feet? You may need an orthotics.

Difference between a shoe insert and an orthotics

Inserts are not custom-made; they are designed to make your shoes adapt to your feet, but they do not solve your foot problems. Orthotics, on the other hand, are prescribed medical products offered by a podiatrist (a doctor specializing in foot care) to correct your foot condition and other related problems.

There are many conditions related to the feet, such as arthritis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, neuroma, and diabetes. All these cases need medical intervention. Orthotics prescribed by a qualified podiatrist not only help remedy your feet-related problems, like pain and discomfort, but also help you avoid surgery for many foot-related issues.

FAQs for Orthotics Treatment

A shoe insert is merely used for cushioning for the shoe, so that it adapts to your feet. But unlike a shoe insert which you can buy from a store, an orthotic product is available only with a foot doctor or a podiatrist. An orthotic product is recommended for specific foot-related problems and underlying diseases that cause foot problems.

An orthotic can also help with correcting and preventing foot deformities. Your overall foot and ankle functioning works at its optimum with the help of an orthotic device. For example, a heel cushion can reduce the impact on the feet and ankle, when your run and a heel flare can prevent an ankle sprain. So, an orthotic product can also help reduce the risks of future injuries.

Do not take your feet problems lightly. If you feel that you are having problems with your movement, especially your ankle and feet, please get in touch with a podiatrist. She or he will check if you need an orthotic device to make life easy and hassle free for you.
