Custom made orthoses are shoe inserts designed specifically for you by Poshoglian Podiatry. Their purpose is to align, support and assist the feet, knees and back to function well during walking and running. From athletes to weekend warriors, by supporting your feet we can stop pain and future side effects of poor foot alignment can be prevented. Common conditions treated with custom orthoses:
- Heel pain
- Unstable ankles
- Forefoot pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Front of knee pain
- Lower back pain
Custom orthoses are also able to accommodate any pains associated with arthritis or general wear, and offload areas of concern:
- Recurring callus/ corn patterns
- Previous ulceration site
- Rheumatiod arthitis
- Fat pad atrophy
What makes Poshoglian Podiatry different?
At Poshoglian Podiatry we use a digital weight bearing 3D casting system- ORTHEMA. Orthema is a quick, easy and mess free way to take an accurate imprint of your feet. We then adjust and add necessary components to suit your functional needs and goals- there is no 'one size fits all' approach. We are able to design a firm device to provide more stability or a flexible device to increase shock absorption. Once prescribed, your podiatrist will fit the orthoses to your shoes and provide wearing in advice. Adjunct therapies, such as stretching and strengthening exercises, will be prescribed to ensure foot strength outside your orthoses.
