Will Orthotics Help Your Condition?
At Avenue Health we have been treating people with orthotics for many years. The system we use has a unique way of measuring the bones of the feet, not only in a fixed position but as the patient walks over the pressure mat, which ensures the most accurate assessment can be made. As a result, the orthotics produced in this manner are a perfect fit and provide the correct amount of support where needed. In the 11 years Avenue Health has been using the TOG (The Orthotic Group) GaitScan equipment, we have prescribed hundreds of pairs of orthotics. Many people go on to purchase a second pair!
What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are specialised custom-made shoe insoles that have been specifically constructed to support your feet and correct any imbalance or loss of arch height. Orthotics are like reading glasses for your feet, supporting the ligaments of the feet that have been stretched or have lost some elasticity.
Why TOG Orthotics?
TOG orthotics are made from a smart material (thermoplastic) that always springs back to its original shape and will not compress with age as conventional orthotics do. This means TOG offer a lifetime guarantee for their product.
Why Do People Need Orthotics?
If your feet are not performing properly, their biomechanics, it can not only lead to foot pain but a host of other complaints, such as:
- Bunions and hammer toes.
- Arch and heel discomfort.
- Pain in knees and legs.
- Hip or back pain – even neck pain.
Correctly prescribed custom-tailored orthotics are specifically designed to solve these problems, making your day-to-day life easier, and giving you a better quality of life. Our orthotics are designed to comfortably fit into your existing shoes, and therefore you will not need to buy new ones. They are comfortable to wear and gently alleviate the symptoms in your feet and the other affected parts of your body. In no time at all, you will be able to enjoy your normal daily activities without pain.
