COMBINING Custom Orthotic Inserts with supporting treatments make them more effective & affordable
The weight of the world, at times, is not supported by your shoulders but by your feet. Little or no arch support (commonly known as flat feet), high arches, standing for extended periods of time, hard surfaces, improper footwear, age and gravity are all contributing factors that can lead to problems with the proper bio-mechanical function of your feet.
Excessive inward rolling (or pronation) of the feet over time can produce symptoms such as painful heels, reoccurring calluses, hammertoes, cramps in the legs and lower back, sore legs, sore feet, corns, backaches and bunions. It is an interesting fact that 85% of people who over-pronate will develop one or more of these painful symptoms at some stage.
Additionally, when foot posture is incorrect and left untreated, the entire body structure becomes misaligned by the inward rotation of the bones and joints. Weak or misaligned bones and arches can lead to painful joint conditions throughout the body including knee, hip, back, neck and shoulder pain. Some clients have reported being woken up every night with pain and muscle cramps in the side of the legs and back prior to experiencing custom orthotics.
We partner with an amazing Australian orthotics maker right here in Sydney to create custom orthotic shoe inserts for almost any kind of shoe, made to perfectly fit your foot size and shape. These inserts, along with targeted massage therapy to help bring the muscles back into their natural place, will help to correct misalignment, alleviate pain, and improve your posture and mobility.
Our orthotic shoe inserts are made from a thin thermoplastic 'memory' material, which has enough rigidity to support the foot, while offering sufficient flexibility to absorb the shock of motion.
