Orthotics

SportsMed Subiaco Orthotics

Foot orthotics are commonly used in the treatment of a number of lower limb conditions. They act to alter abnormal biomechanical stresses on the components of the lower limb or to alter weight- bearing pressures on the foot.

Functional foot orthotics can assist the following:

  • Plantar fasciitis/fasciosis
  • Hallux valgus (bunions)
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Nerve entrapment (Morton’s Neuroma)
  • Tendinopathy
  • Lower limb stress fractures
  • Tibial periostitis (shin splints)
  • Patello-femoral pain syndrome
  • Support and cushioning for arthritic and/or diabetic feet

Our orthotics are manufactured from EVA, a high density composite foam material that is comfortable, user-friendly and suitable for a range of loads, foot pathology and activity levels.

Dr Gerard Taylor and Dr Scott Isbel conduct customised orthotic assessments using state-of-the-art computer technology to measure your biomechanical foot signature. Our orthotic technician then combines computer technology and manufacturing systems (CAD/CAM) to produce your customised functional foot orthotics.

At Sportsmed Subiaco, our orthotics can usually be manufactured and ready for use within a twenty-four hour period.
