At mhealth Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates, we offer the kind of expertise and experience that can treat all kinds of painful foot, limb, and lower back problems with the use of highly effective and customised orthotics. Our expertly custom-crafted orthotics are made with the use of the highest quality materials with a dynamic yet functional pressure-sensitive pad in order to provide optimal support during all different types of physical activity.

Orthotics are an effective arch support and can be made up of various kinds of materials including both soft and hard materials. Orthotics rest inside your shoe right under your foot. They are there to support a healthy arch and they can either be full length or designed to fit near the balls of your feet.

Our Orthotics Can Be Used To Treat…

  • Heel and arch pain
  • Achilles tendon pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Tired feet or muscles in the calf

They can also be used to treat any painful corns or calluses found on the bottom of the feet and can also be used to treat various knee, hip, or lower back pain that is caused by poor foot posture. The custom orthotics provided by mhealth Physiotherapists are specifically made for your feet.

As a result, they are fine-tuned to provide you with optimal support for your feet and the way your individual feet are designed to help your feet achieve a much better and healthier position. The kind of support you will be able to get along with the level of realignment from wearing our orthotics will help you in many ways including reducing any joint or soft tissue strain you might be experiencing and will allow you to give your body a much more stable footing and foundation for optimal health.

GAIT SCAN

When you schedule an appointment with one of our Physiotherapists, we will be able to take note of your health issues and any other related conditions you might be experiencing related to your feet. By doing this as well as examining the pain you are experiencing, we can properly assess the health of your feet.

We do this by performing a digital biomechanics exam that is known as a ‘Gait Scan.’ This will allow our physiotherapists to effectively examine all of the underlying issues that are causing your condition and help us identify the best course of treatment for it. The Gait Scan helps us to accomplish this by providing the most accurate information that combines the use of high-tech software and a pressure pad.

If the health issue that you are currently experiencing is related to the effects of having poor foot posture we will be able to design custom made orthotics using the 3D analysis from our pressure pad. This will allow us to be able to get the highest quality custom scan without having to worry about the mess that is typically present with plaster casting. This entire process from start to finish only takes a mere 10 minutes to analyse which means you will be able to get back on your feet and start improving your foot health in no time.

A digital scan of your posture will be completed to see whether or not the angles of the hip and knee are also contributing to the pain that you are experiencing. Being able to combine this data with the results of the 3D gait scan will allow us to identify the best orthotics for your particular condition.

That way, we will be able to provide you with the highest quality orthotics that is custom made to give you the best chance to solve the issues that are resulting from any type of debilitating pain you may be experiencing. We will be able to provide you with complete footwear guidance and advice and we will even be able to provide you with detailed foot exercises that you can incorporate into your routine in order to speed up the realignment process to get you rehabilitated in next to no time.

Custom made orthotics can quickly restore your feet to their normal functionality and allow you to achieve complete and total postural realignment in the process.

Here at mhealth Podiatry, we strive to provide the highest quality care using the latest technology and equipment found within the industry to properly diagnose and treat your condition.

The fact is, an average person walks up to 10,000 steps every single day. When extrapolated out, it would take nearly 6 years to walk around the world at that pace. That’s a lot of walking!

While feet are typically one of our least concerns, when pain persists, it can negatively impact your quality of life in a big way.
