East Gosford Podiatry specialises in custom-made orthotics for Central Coast residents
Do you suffer from foot or leg pain, corns or calluses or even lower back pain? Our custom orthotics Central Coast can help to alleviate some of the issues that arise when you need orthoses.
Here at East Gosford Podiatry, we have a team of highly skilled podiatrists with vast knowledge on treatment options that can help resolve your foot pain and correct biomechanical abnormalities with foot orthotics or orthoses. Orthotics are a common need amongst people of all ages to assist them in helping and preventing issues that can cause foot pain and strain. East Gosford Podiatry is very active in the Central Coast Community and surrounding suburbs including, Wyoming, Gosford, terrigal, Green point and Erina. Orthotics or Orthoses are also referred to as “arch support”, and are an innersole worn within your shoes to alter position, function or forces in your foot and lower limb.
The orthotics or foot orthoses often used by Podiatrists are usually a ‘foot bed’ or ‘innersole’ that is placed inside your shoe. For this orthotic to be perceived as helpful or ‘working,’ they need to change your foot position or force sufficiently for your injury and symptoms to improve, according to the goals that have been set. There are two main types of innersoles and orthotics available: off-the-shelf and custom-made. Custom-made devices are manufactured specifically for your feet and their needs by your podiatrist, allowing for a more specialised and effective treatment plan.
If you are based on the Central Coast and are in need of some support in resolving foot pain or some custom orthotics, East Gosford Podiatry is here to help.
