Orthotics are an artificial support applied to poor functioning feet
Unlike most other artificial supports used for the human body, orthotics are rarely used with a plan to get out of them. Compare this with knee braces, plaster casts, shoulder slings, etc.. which are almost always temporary
There is always a plan to rebuild an injured knee so the knee brace can be removed.. Likewise the plaster cast and shoulder sling.
At Wollongong Podiatry that is what we do with orthotics.. If we use an artificial support to allow your injury to heal, we will also provide you with our unique StrongFeet™ program to reduce the need for orthotics in the long term. If you would like your current orthotics assessed by our StrongFeet™ Podiatrist’s, get in touch today. We look forward to helping you out
