Orthotics

At Advanced Physio, we use foot orthotics to help with the treament of a number of conditions including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee pain
  • Shin pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Foot pain
  • Heel pain
  • Ankle pain

Advanced Physio offers choice

Patients attending our facility in Warner's Bay will have a choice of two types of orthotics.

Gaitscan orthotics

Gaitscan orthotics are measured using a force plate and then made in Canada. These customised orthotics are made of a comfortable space age plastic material with a soft cover. We consider these the best orthotics available. They are different to traditional customised orthotics in that they are semirigid and offer ample support whilst still remaining comfortable. The measurement for these is done with the patient walking and we retain a permanent record of your foot pressures that can also be used to assess how your foot changes over the years. Gaitscan orthotics have a life span of least 5 years -although the top cover may need occasional replacing.

Formthotics

Formthotics are heat-moulded and therefore suitable for many conditions. these specialist orthotics are especially suitable for sports persons and children’s feet. Formthotics are effective for 12 months and cost around $120 at our Warner's Bay clinic.

Advanced Physio's orthotics come with a one hundred percent money back guarantee.  There is no risk. Should a patient's orthotics not be comfortable or satisfactory, we will exchange them or refund the full cost.

Biomechanical Assessments

To avoid chances of injury, Advanced Physio recommends that all active people should have a biomechanical assessment.  A biomechanical assessment will look at how you walk, run or perform any activity. Our team at Advanced Physio uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure that a patient's biomechanical assessment is thorough, accurate and highly effective. Once an analysis has been performed strategies can be implemented to settle a current problem and prevent further injuries.
