Why Custom Made Orthotic Inserts?
Mobility is something that a lot of people take for granted. Those fortunate enough to be able to wear whatever footwear they like will never experience the sense of relief that comes from finding shoes, sandals or boots that suddenly transform walking from a painful, uncomfortable exercise to something freeing and enjoyable. However, custom orthotics are a great way to get the best from your current footwear without having to go out into the work in the hope that something better is available. Here at Walk Without Pain podiatry clinics in Brisbane, our team of professionals have years of experience working with those who endure the hardships associated with fallen arches, flat feet and a variety of other complications of the feet that make getting around difficult to do. As such, when you visit with us, you can expect a level of care and world-class service that will not only alleviate even the most complex of problems but will empower you to get the most from your life.
A Revolutionary Approach To Custom Orthotics
Custom orthotics cost money; there is no getting around it. This is a somewhat risky proposition for many people who need their money to count when they spend it. There are so many stories of folks that have spent their hard-earned money on orthotics that simply did not deliver on the promises they were sold on and so this may discourage others from seeking out a similar solution.
At Walk Without Pain, we endeavour to make our systems that bit more affordable to those living in Brisbane. With HICAPS rebates available on site at any of our four clinics, this enables you to avail of immediate care without having to stress the financial side of things. What’s more, even if you have already invested in orthotics, we can look at the inserts you have and make adjustments to them in order to eliminate the problems that continue to create issues for your feet.
However, for those that wish to find a solution that is moulded to their feet, our team have computer-assisted design and manufacture possibilities available to you. This will allow us to determine exactly what is wrong with the structure of your feet that is bringing about pain, and then create an custom orthotic solution that is thin, comfortable and fits your unique feet so that you can move forward unimpeded.

How we make Custom Orthotics in Brisbane
Custom made orthotic inserts are medical appliances that are designed to alleviate pain and improve function. Pain could be in the foot , ankle or legs or elsewhere in the body. Poor foot position or function can cause issues to develop in the hips, spine and shoulders.
The most important part of orthotic therapy is a correct diagnosis. Without this, a treatment plan is only guess work. Our experience, coupled with up to date investigation techniques put us at the forefront of our field. We might use X Ray, MRI, on site ultrasonography and diagnostic injections to help define an injury if the cause is not clear.
Once we know what intervention you need, we scan your feet with a very accurate 3D scanning tool. From here, the scan is sent off to a different program to be modified. This is basically where we look at your foot that is causing you issues and investigate how to make it a ‘perfect foot’ given what we have learned about the nature of your problem. The scan is then emailed off to a manufacturing laboratory in a big, noisy industrial shed where the orthotics are milled by a computer controlled CAD-CAM milling unit and your custom orthotics then returned to us for completion. The most common item we make is custom orthotics for plantar fasciitis, and orthotic inserts to better align knees.
You might be aware that retail stores sell off the shelf orthotics cheaply. These are a “one prescription fits all” kind of device. They may be suitable under some conditions – if you have a mild problem and if your body is roughly in keeping with the model on which the insert was based. It is much like the difference between a custom made pair of spectacles and buying the generic type at the pharmacy. Although custom orthotics cost more in total, they are modelled to suit you and your problem exactly. If you have private health insurance, you may find that custom orthotics cost less of close to the out of pocket cost of the off the shelf items after your rebate is considered. Read Less
