Custom Orthotics

At Grandview Physiotherapy, we understand the importance of comprehensive care for our clients. One essential aspect of holistic well-being is the proper support and alignment of your feet through custom orthotics. Our commitment to your health goes beyond mere expertise—we strive to provide personalized solutions that cater to your unique needs.

Understanding Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics are specially crafted insoles designed to support and align the feet, helping alleviate musculoskeletal issues and improve overall biomechanics. Unlike over-the-counter inserts, custom orthotics are tailored to the individual’s foot structure, ensuring a precise fit and maximum effectiveness.

Our experienced therapists conduct thorough assessments to understand your specific biomechanical needs. Through physical examinations, gait analysis, and discussions about your lifestyle and activities, we gain valuable insights to create custom orthotics that address your unique concerns.

At Grandview Physiotherapy, we collaborate with skilled orthotic specialists who employ advanced techniques and materials to create orthotics that seamlessly integrate with your footwear. The meticulous craftsmanship ensures that the orthotics provide optimal support, stability, and comfort throughout your daily activities.

Conditions Addressed

Several conditions can benefit from custom orthotics, including:

Plantar Fasciitis: Alleviating pain associated with inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Flat Feet: Providing arch support for individuals with low or collapsed arches.

Foot Pain: Easing discomfort caused by issues such as metatarsalgia or sesamoiditis.

Overpronation/Supination: Correcting abnormal foot mechanics to prevent strain on joints.

Sports Injuries: During sports, supporting the feet improves performance and lowers the chance of injury.

Our approach to custom orthotics is centred on your well-being. We actively involve you in decision-making, ensuring your concerns and preferences are considered. The goal is to empower you with the tools to maintain an active and pain-free lifestyle.

Investing in custom orthotics at Grandview Physiotherapy is an investment in your long-term health. Beyond immediate relief, properly fitted orthotics can contribute to the prevention of future injuries and the promotion of overall musculoskeletal health.
