Off the shelf orthotics are often advertised in national newspapers and sold by podiatrists to alleviate pain in the feet, knees, hips and lower back.
One of your foot’s main functions is to absorb shock as your body weight shifts with each step. This takes place via a complex process in which the arch of the foot flattens slightly, thus absorbing and distributing the weight throughout the entire foot.
Customised orthotic insoles are manufactured locally utilising a cast taken of your feet and adjustments are made to correct the alignment of your lower limbs. The insoles are slimline and fit within your normal footwear, which can include work and sport shoes.
Problems with your fee that orthotics can help to alleviate: The foot arch doesn’t flatten at all or the arch flattens too much. Both these conditions can be the cause of the following common complaints:
At ctchealthcare we can also carry out Biomechanical assessments that focus on assessing your body in great depth, allowing our Physiotherapists to accurately pinpoint the cause of injuries and highlight how to correct or eradicate it.
Parking spaces are available outside each of our clinic buildings. Please arrive 5 minutes early for an assessment appointment as you will be asked to complete a consent form prior to entering the treatment room. Bring along any referral letters, scans, reports that you may have.
Please wear comfortable clothing to your appointment. You may be asked to remove clothing so all relevant areas can be examined. If you are presenting a limb injury, please bring a pair of shorts or a thin strapped top to make it easier for your therapist to examine or you may be asked to change into a pair of shorts privately in the treatment room.
Payments must be made on arrival. The charges for each appointment type are shown on the appointment selection page. If you qualify for a known discount or would like to redeem a voucher, please notify a member of the reception team on arrival for your appointment. Payment to insurance companies are dealt with directly.
If you have health insurance you need to check with your insurance company that your treatment is covered. Please bring the relevant details with you including your policy number and claim/authorisation number. Treatment costs not covered by your insurance will need to be met in full on the day of treatment. All policy excesses must be disclosed and paid for on your initial visit.
24hrs notice must be given if you wish to cancel your appointment. Failure to do so may result in a charge being raised for the appointment.
