What are orthotics?
Custom orthotic’s are used to put in footwear modify the structural and functional characteristics of the foot and lower limb. Orthotics are prescribed from a combination of knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biomechanics and engineering.
An orthotic may be used to:
- To control, guide, limit and/or immobilise a joint
- To assist with movement
- To reduce weight bearing forces and redistribute pressure
- To aid in rehabilitation from soft tissue of skeletal injuries
- To improve function and increase performance
- To manipulate shape and/or function of the lower limb, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain
- To reduce chance of injury and pathology within the lower limb

Orthotics for any shoe
At ACE podiatry we believe it is important to design a custom orthotic that you will use. It is pointless us making you a custom orthotic that will not fit into your most commonly worn shoes.
At ACE podiatry orthotic’s can be made to fit into any shoe.
That said, the more supportive the shoe, the more effect the custom orthotic will have and the more supportive the custom orthotic can be made. Some support is better than nothing, thats why is it important to not only do a thorough biomechanical analysis, but to also decide what shoes the orthotics are being made for, and what activities the orthotics will be used for
