Geelong Foot Orthoses
Foot Orthoses and insoles are regularly used to assist with pain relief by providing soft tissue support and realigning any abnormality in your feet or lower limbs. The support helps to reduce overuse and stress to muscles and joints. At podiatry@belmont our Foot Orthoses are made after a thorough and comprehensive biomechanical assessment which includes gait analysis, foot posture measurement, muscle and joint range-of-motion testing.
Foot Orthoses can be used for the following conditions:
- pronation or flat feet
- bunions, callouses and corns
- supination or high arched feet
- sporting injuries
- children’s growing or leg pains
- leg pain – including ankle, arch-of-the-foot, knee, heel and shin pain
- diabetic ulcers
- Charcot deformities
- offloading pressure areas
- foot and toe deformities.
Everyone’s feet are different and our Geelong podiatrist will assess your foot type for the most appropriate Foot Orthoses. During your assessment, your podiatrist will advise you which type of Foot Orthoses will suit your feet and footwear best and the life span of your Foot Orthoses. Foot Orthoses are usually covered by your private health insurance.
We offer a range of effective treatments to relieve and treat your condition and improve your quality of life – whether you looking for an adult or children’s podiatrist. Book an appointment with podiatry@belmont for assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
