Orthotics are a common and great treatment option in our podiatry clinic. They work wonders for various foot, ankle, and leg conditions.
At TFC Podiatry we rethink the way orthotics fit into your life. By using the latest technology including 3D laser scanning and 3D printing, we can create low bulk, comfortable orthotics which are designed to treat your foot pain while fitting into a surprising amount of footwear options.
At TFC Podiatry, our team of sports Podiatrists use orthotic therapy as part of your treatment plan to help you reach your goals. The first step is always finding out what your goals are, assessing and diagnosing your condition and then we talk about where orthotic therapy might fit into that treatment plan. We work on an understanding that orthotics are part of the picture to help you treat the problem, improve tissue performance and keep you moving.
If you’re considering orthotics and want to find out if they’re suitable for you, we recommend booking an initial or subsequent appointment for a biomechanical assessment, which includes a treadmill and video gait analysis. This evaluation will help us determine if orthotics are a suitable option for your needs!

What are orthotics?
Orthotics are custom-made, biomechanically designed shoe insoles which are inserted into appropriate footwear in order to functionally assist and support the foot and ankle. We recommend custom-made orthotics for a variety of clinical presentations. These prescription medical devices assist in the treatment and prevention of a multitude of complex conditions (some of which are listed below).
We use orthotics with the aim of restoring optimal foot function, treating many Podiatric conditions. These devices have revolutionised the way that foot, ankle and leg conditions are managed. Being individually designed to suit each patient and their conditions, custom-made orthotics are very well tolerated and can have a high success rate in both treating symptoms and injuries.
