Reasons That You Require Custom Made Orthotics in Brisbane

What Are Orthotics? 

 Orthotics are shoe insoles that are used to address a wide range of foot and musculoskeletal disorders. Orthotics are classified into two types-

  1. Off-the-shelf orthotics are typically no more than a rubber or neoprene insole pre-moulded for common issues such as flat feet and RSI discomfort.
  2. Custom made orthotics in Brisbane are designed specifically for your feet and are used to treat biochemical abnormalities in the feet, lower limbs, and lower back.

Why Would You Require Customized Orthotics?

Contrary to common misconception, orthotics do much more than give arch support. But, this is about the extent of what-off-the shelf orthotics can do for you. On the other hand, custom insoles in Brisbane are intended to raise, cup, cushion, and realign pressures in your foot. Orthotics, in this sense, are a conservative therapy for several common foot problems-

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes-related sensation loss (neuropathy)
  • Flat feet
  • High arches
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Hip misalignment
  • Lower back pain
  • Bursitis


Why Do You Need Custom Orthotics?

  1. Foot Abnormalities Can Benefit From Orthotics- Acute pain, chronic discomfort, and difficulties participating in sports can all be caused by generic and biomechanical abnormalities. A minor misalignment can cause heel discomfort (plantar fasciitis), weak ankles, knee ailments, and endurance issues owing to foot pain. Orthotic insoles in Brisbane are uniquely designed to treat these concerns by realigning and rebalancing feet to reduce stress points and restore proper foot function.
  1. Orthotics Can Be Beneficial During Pregnancy- Weight gain during pregnancy can cause poor circulation and joint pain if pressure is applied to your feet suddenly and for an extended period of time. Custom orthotics compensate for the additional weight by supporting and cushioning the foot. It means-
  • Better blood circulation.
  • Less strain on knees
  • Lower back pain minimized.
  • Increased comfort when walking
  • No need for special shoes

3.  Back Pain Orthotics- Back discomfit is frequently treated with orthotics, but for the wrong reasons. To establish the fundamental cause of back discomfort, we examine how your feet roll, how your ankles and knees move, and your hip alignment at the Custom Feet Insoles. We then construct bespoke orthotics that correct foot pressure/ movement using accurate 3D laser scanning. This gradually lengthens tensed muscles, allowing them to transfer weight load more evenly while wearing them and reducing back discomfort. Orthotics also provide cushioning during high-intensity exercises, such as sports, minimizing the strain on your back and lowering your chance of injury or chronic pain.

Is It Worthwhile to Invest in Orthotics?

Consider custom form orthotics to be a piece of sporting equipment that can support or perform. Many people are recommended to acquire orthotics for arch support and opt for the off-the-shelf solution rather than seeing a podiatrist. This can help with minor flat-footedness in the near term, but any serious biomechanical abnormalities will worsen without a bespoke treatment.
