Orthotics – A Natural Solution.

The feet form the foundation of the body. Custom made orthotics relieves the pressure on the feet, knees, hips, and back. They have a biomechanical effect and therefore help the foot to function naturally. As different feet need different types of support, Care Plus Physiotherapy offers wide variety of custom made orthotics to ensure that everyone can find the right solution to meet their needs.

It is estimated that the majority of the population over pronates due to the hard, flat unnatural surfaces we walk on daily. Over pronation often disrupts normal knee function and hip alignment and increases forces on the lower back muscles. These biomechanical deficiencies are common in all types of patients from children to the elderly, from top athletes to people with a sedentary lifestyle.

After conducting a detailed biomechanical evaluation (including non-weight bearing and weight bearing objective measurements as well as a functional assessment of balance and gait), therapists at Care Plus Physiotherapy create casts from the patient’s feet and partner with orthotists to fabricate the custom-made orthotics.
