An orthotic is designed to hold the foot in a better position.
So, if an orthotic can help, why would we offer an alternative?
1. They only work when you are wearing them
2. You only wear them if they are comfortable
3. They limit your footwear
4. Your muscles and tissues become reliant on an orthotic device making your feet weaker over time.
Therefore, at Hip to Toe our podiatrists and physiotherapists would rather get the foot to work the way it is meant to without having to rely on an orthotic device for the rest of your life.
Not only do we get our clients free of their orthotics, but we want to get them off pain killers and prevent them from needing surgery.
Let our highly trained podiatrists and physiotherapists give you an alternative to orthotics, surgery and pain killers.
Imagine walking barefoot on the beautiful Gold Coast beaches, buying any shoes, wearing any shoes, getting out of bed and not having to put shoes on.
These are achievable goals, and we want to help you achieve them.
Many of our clients have reported they are now able to:
It might be you want to walk on the beach, or train for a marathon, or climb Everest.
Our Gold Coast Podiatrists and Physiotherapists have helped thousands of clients achieve these goals without orthotics by moving the feet and legs into better, stronger positions internally rather than relying on external supports.
Have a think about the goals you want to achieve, write them down and bring them with you to your initial consultation. We will adapt your podiatry and physiotherapy treatment to help you achieve those goals.
Orthotics can be extremely useful in certain circumstances and we prescribe them when necessary.
However, there are many situations where they are not needed and not helpful so we would rather use an alternative podiatry treatment to orthotics and address the underlying issues.
