Registered Remuera Podiatrist

Biomechanical foot issues can cause aching, painful feet. These foot issues can also result in referred pain in your back, hips, and leg muscles as your body adapts to a dysfunctional foot pattern. Sometimes, over-the-counter inserts offer relief, but they aren’t really designed for you and can’t offer long-term relief. At Go Feet, in however, we provide prescription orthotics that can help with the way you stand, walk, or run.

Accommodative orthotics

Accommodative orthotics are also known as soft orthotics. They are crafted from soft material that compresses and offers cushioning to support feet suffering from plantar fasciitis or diabetic foot ulcers. You might also benefit from a soft orthotic if you have arthritic feet or feet that have missing fatty tissue on the sole.

Semirigid orthotics

Semirigid orthotics are best for people who need support while walking or participating in athletic activities. The orthotic encourages proper anatomical function so your feet perform most efficiently. You may even get semirigid orthotics for skis and ice skates to enhance function.

Children’s orthotics

Grown-ups aren’t the only people who have problems with their feet. Children with foot deformities, such as flat feet or in-toe gait, benefit from orthotics, which help create a more normal walking pattern and can possibly prevent the need for surgery. Because children grow, orthotics are adapted as your child’s foot grows. Not only will you need new sizes, but the type and form of the orthotic may change the shape of your child’s foot.

Medical conditions

Though orthotics can’t cure arthritis or diabetes, they can be exceptionally helpful in alleviating the symptoms of these conditions in your feet. Those who are diabetic can get extra cushioning for sore, ulcerated feet; orthotics offer structural support to prevent the friction that can cause complications in foot health. Arthritic feet may also benefit from the cushioning provided by orthotics.
