Sole Therapy corrective orthotics can be worn for as little as six weeks to achieve pain-free results. Our Sole Therapy foot orthotics not only gets rid of your pain but also helps strengthen your feet and core muscles over time. Our aim is to get you standing in better alignment barefoot so you can live your best life without the need for appliances and foot aids in the future. The duration of time to wear your orthoses will be estimated by our podiatrist’s and will depend on a number of factors, including:
- What type of injury you have.
- How much and how often you wear your
- How much sports / physical activity you do.
- Whether you’re a child and in a growth spurt or an adult
- Severity of misalignment being corrected.
Unlike other podiatry practices Sole Therapy helps strengthen your feet outside of your foot orthoses so you can eventually not need these inserts to keep you pain free. Our Sole Therapy customized foot orthoses range are slim enough to fit into heeled shoes or flats.
Our Sole Therapy Orthotics are different then shoe inserts or insoles bought over the counter. Our orthotics are custom-made built from the molds of your feet to meet your unique needs and prescription. The Sole Therapy podiatrist will on your initial biomechanical assessment achieve the best treatment outcomes for you after an hour of analyzing your body’s posture. We design and make your orthoses on the spot then follow your progress: rather than sending off to a factory to have these made.
Factory generic orthotics may offer some level of correction, but will more than likely not be precise and at worst may actually damage or worsen your foot alignment, especially if not fitted or provided by a qualified Podiatrist. Orthotic Insoles providing cushioning for comfort can be great, and there is a place for shop insoles – the key is to understand the difference and be aware of the limitations of general insoles. As a general rule, foot pain should never be ignored and should always be investigated by your Podiatrist, especially foot pain or lethargy in children.
