Get the Right Support for Your Feet
Sydney Spinal Care offers you custom made podiatry quality orthotics for a fraction of the price you would pay elsewhere. Find out more about our orthotic service below, or get in touch with us today to arrange a consultation and foot scan.
What is an Orthotic?
An orthotic (orthoses) is an insert that can be placed into your shoes to help provide support while assisting with any dysfunction in your feet or ankles.
The use of custom orthotics may help with the following conditions:
- foot pain
- plantar fasciitis
- flat feet
- lower back pain
- heel pain
- sports injuries and performance
Unlike shoe inserts that can be bought over-the-counter at numerous drug stores, custom-mold-orthotics are personalized to match your unique foot structure. They provide the necessary comfort and support to your feet.
We source our custom made orthotics from a podiatry factory in sydney, which is the same place many podiatrists use.
A particular size or style of orthotics will be recommended to you. We base our recommendations on a scan of your feet and the type of foot issues you are experiencing.
How much do custom orthotics cost?
Where a podiatrist would charge upwards of $600 for consult and fitting, we only charge $250 – $300 for fitting and orthotics.
Your orthotics will be custom made according to a scan of your foot. Being custom made, the orthotics will offer you better support in the right places.
According to a study published in J Am Podiatr Med Assoc: “the cost-effectiveness analysis demonstrated that functional orthoses, although initially more expensive, result in a better quality of life.”
Can I claim orthotics on my health fund?
A lot of health funds unfortunately do not rebate chiropractors for orthotics, however it is best to check with your provider on whether they provide coverage that can be claimed at a chiropractic clinic.
