Orthotics - Oakleigh

At Atherton Road Podiatry Centre we can assess and educate you on whether orthotics will be right for you. There are range of reasons that indicate the need for orthotics. In our initial assessment, we will complete a full biomechanical assessment, that may include:

  • Muscle testing
  • Range of motion assessment
  • Walking gait anaylsis
  • Static standing assessment
  • Running assessment 

Through our comprehensive assessments, we will be able to quickly and thoroughly dtermine the best treatment options available for you.

The main function of a foot orthotic is to redistribute plantar pressurs and correctly support the three arches within your foot. Orthotics have also been shown to have significant effect on joints above the ankle (knee), and aid in realigning your joints.  As fantastic as orthotics are, if not prescribed correctly they can lead to further pathologies and issues.  

Our Podiatrists in Oakleigh, are able to provide a range of orthotics tailored to your needs. As per our clinic policy, if you receive orthotics from us, we recover them yearly - free of charge - and complete a review at 6 monthly intervals. If you have private health insurance with Podiatry extras, orthotics (up to a certain limit or per centage) are normally covered.

If you have any questions regarding orthotics or orthotic modifications please do not hesitate to contact us on 9568 1011 or book in online!
