Freedom from Orthotics

Alternative to Orthotics

At FROM THE FEET UP we are experienced in large range of hands-on manual therapies to specifically treat the cause of your foot and leg issues, not just treat the symptoms.

WE ARE A UNIQUE, AS WE LOOK AT YOUR HOLISTIC PERFORMANCE

We examine the whole body to see how the body is affecting the feet and how the feet are affecting the rest of the body. We take into consideration your footwear, as your shoes change the way your feet and body function. We make sure your shoes are not causing or adding to your issues, and can make modifications to your footwear to address these issues.

We may refer you to our wide network of health providers to address issues in the upper body that are a direct result of your foot and leg issues.

We literally look at fixing you FROM THE FEET UP.

Hand-Built Custom Foot Insoles/Orthotics

?Insoles and Orthotics can be life changing when skilfully crafted for the right person. Many people purchase over the counter inserts or poorly constructed orthotics and may be met with limited success. A truly ?custom? foot orthotic is expertly crafted exactly to your foot and your needs based on our evaluation and then hand built by our Podiatrists.

Our specialised gait analysis examines how your foot and ankle affect the function of your entire body, rather than just the foot and ankle. Your hand-built custom foot insole or orthotic is truly built from the ground up just for you.

Walking & Running Issues

?If you have difficulty walking or running comfortably, our therapists will perform a movement evaluation, a joint and muscle exam, and a detailed gait analysis. We study the way you walk and move your foot, ankle, and hip joints to identify why walking and running may be challenging for you.

Your plan will include mobility movements and key strength exercises based on your unique presentation. In some cases, a custom insole of foot orthotic may be constructed to help you overcome a key limitation. Running and walking are in reach again!
