ORTHOTIC ASSESSMENT

An orthotist assesses joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles for pain, weakness or deformities to create a device called an orthosis. Orthoses help relieve foot, leg or back pain. They can accommodate deformities, improve stability or help to strengthen soft tissues.

Initial assessment will include:

  1. Full non-weight-bearing assessment of the affected areas
  2. Standing assessment, where alignment is assessed, and gait analysis.
  3. Depending on the presentation, we will discuss prescription choices and measurements or moulds will be taken to create an orthotic solution.

Orthotics can be used to treat a range of conditions including:

Plantar fasciitis
Post tibialis tendon dysfunction (PTTD)
Diabetic neuropathies
Toe deformities
Osteoarthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Morton’s neuroma
Metatarsalgia
Plantar heel pain
Knee pain
Back pain
