Footwise Home Podiatry offer orthotics services to address a variety of foot and lower limb conditions, aiming to improve comfort, function, and overall quality of life for patients. Here’s an overview of our orthotics services:

Assessment and Diagnosis: We begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s feet, lower limbs, and gait. This may involve physical examinations, gait analysis, and sometimes imaging studies such as X-ray or ultrasound to diagnose underlying biomechanical issues.

Custom Orthotics: Based on the assessment findings, we may recommend custom orthotic devices tailored to the individual patient’s needs. Custom orthotics are specially designed insoles or shoe inserts that are molded to the unique shape of the patient’s feet. These devices provide support, cushioning, and correction for various foot deformities, biomechanical abnormalities, and gait issues.

Premade Orthotics: In addition to custom orthotics, we may also prescribe pre-made orthotic devices for patients with less complex foot problems. These over-the-counter orthotics are a more affordable option that are highly effective at treating most foot issues. 

Orthotic Modification and Adjustment: We can modify and adjust orthotic devices as needed to optimize their effectiveness and ensure patient comfort. This may involve trimming, padding, or adding components to the orthotics to address specific foot issues or accommodate changes in the patient’s condition.

Footwear Recommendations: We often provide guidance on appropriate footwear choices that complement the use of orthotic devices. We may recommend shoes with certain features such as adequate arch support, cushioning, and stability to enhance the benefits of orthotic therapy.

Education and Rehabilitation: We educate patients on proper orthotic use, including how to wear and care for their devices. They may also provide exercises and rehabilitation programs to complement orthotic therapy and address underlying muscle imbalances or weakness.

Follow-up Care: We will typically schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress with orthotic therapy, make any necessary adjustments to the devices, and ensure that treatment goals are being met.

Overall, podiatry orthotics services play a crucial role in managing a wide range of foot and lower limb conditions, helping patients achieve improved comfort, mobility, and function in their daily lives.
