For the month of July 2012, Entire Podiatry have a special offer for our clients. This month, we will be giving away a free pair of Dr Comfort socks, with every order of custom orthotics.
What are custom orthotics?
Custom orthotics are shoe inserts which are made specifically to suit your feet. Because custom foot orthotics are made especially to suit the individual, research and clinical experience shows that custom orthotics are the most effective at â€œhuggingâ€ the arches of the feet and therefore providing the best support and symptom relief, compared to other types of orthotics such as off-the-shelf orthotics.
Custom orthotics provide effective relief for a range of conditions affecting the feet and legs. They can also help to relieve pain in other parts of the body that may be affected by poor foot function, such as knee, hip or low back pain. Custom orthotics are designed to gently and consistently redirect your feet into the correct position for activities involving walking, running and standing. This enables your feet to function most efficiently, reducing the likelihood of soft tissue strain or development of foot deformities.
How are custom orthotics made?
At Entire Podiatry, our qualified podiatrists prescribe custom orthotics only after conducting a comprehensive biomechanical assessment and casting of the feet. To ensure you get the best result from your orthotics, an accurate casting is critical. Your podiatrist will also ensure a proper prescription, taking into account any biomechanical problems you may have, specific activities that you undertake, and the shoes you would be wearing the orthotics with. Based on the information provided by the podiatrist, Entire Podiatry custom orthotics are then manufactured in a high-quality Australian-based orthotics laboratory.
If you need a new pair of custom orthotics, visit one of our Entire Podiatry clinics and take advantage of this special offer in July. Simply present this article when ordering custom orthotics at an Entire Podiatry clinic, and you will receive a free pair of Dr Comfort socks (valid until 31 July 2012).
