A functional foot orthotic is a prescription medical device worn inside the shoe. It is used to control abnormal forces commonly resulting in musculoskeletal breakdown and injury. By recognising and adjusting these abnormal forces your podiatrist is able to reduce the mechanical load on muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bone, this will alleviate pain and improve lower limb function.
Orthotics provided by PDC Health Hub are custom made to each foot to tailor for your individual biomechanical needs. Orthotics are designed to go into shoes to support, align and improve the way the foot functions.
