Foot orthotics are devices which go within footwear to alter the forces acting on the tissues in our feet and lower limbs.  Foot orthotics can be utilised to minimise stress on certain tissues to allow the body to heal.  Foot orthotics use can be long term or short term depending on the individual.  At PW Podiatry we offer both generic as well as fully customised foot orthotics.  When it comes to children's feet, foot orthotics are often used to support the feet during developmental years assisting in balance and power.  If you or your children are suffering from lower limb pain or instability, book an appointment to be assessed and see if foot orthotics are for you.
