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:
- Full non-weight-bearing assessment of the affected areas
- Standing assessment, where alignment is assessed, and gait analysis.
- 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:
Post tibialis tendon dysfunction (PTTD)
Plantar heel pain
