Custom Orthotics in Townsville

Woman walkingSpinal issues are best addressed from the ground up. If you don’t have a level foundation with your feet, you’ll likely be addressing the same problems on a regular basis.

Patients with orthotics from Chiropractic Care North QLD find it beneficial for work and play. From having them fit for their work boots in the mines, to having a better base for your running and walking needs, these shoe inserts can make a big difference in how well you feel.

No one’s feet are perfect mirror images, so everyone can benefit from orthotics.

What to Expect During Your Appointments

When you visit us to explore custom orthotics, one of our chiropractors will conduct a postural assessment with you. Once the initial assessment is completed, you are booked for a longer appointment, so you can receive a gait scan. During that scan, a plate with about 13,000 sensors specifically measures the movement of each bone in the foot.

Depending on each patient’s needs, the shoe inserts will fit their lifestyle. If they’re a runner, there’s an orthotic for that, which is different than if they’re only interested in extra support during golf. There are also specialised orthotics for work boots, tennis shoes, and even casual shoes. The team can even have your orthotics custom-fitted to your Birkenstock sandals.

If there’s a leg-length discrepancy under 10 millimetres, a patient can also have the lift needed built into the orthotic, so the patient doesn’t need to also have the shoes built.

Coverage for custom orthotics depends on your insurer. Always check with them first about your potential financial obligation. The shoe inserts are covered under a warranty from the manufacturer.
