What Are Orthotics?

Orthotics are worn in your shoes to even the forces on your feet, knees, hips and shoulders. We use foot levellers orthotics which help support and align the three arches of the feet to relieve foot pain. 

Orthotics can help with problems of the knees, hips, lower back and neck.

By stabilising and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce pain and contribute to total body posture. Our orthotics will complement any chiropractic or massage therapy care when you stand, walk or train.





  Understanding your feet?

If you are considering individually designed stabilizing orthotics, the chiropractor will perform a 3-D foot scan to show how imbalances in the feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders. Following the scan, this information will be used to show if the stabilizing orthotics can help. A report will be given showing the Pronation/Stability Index, a foot assessment and body assessment.

The orthotics are custom made for your feet and arches. Most health insurance funds allow you to claim a percentage of the total cost of the orthotics. You are able to choose between many comfort levels and you can also choose the orthotic for various activity levels from extreme sports,office,work boot, casual and fashion wear.
