Orthotics Insoles

Orthotics Insoles


Custom orthotics are made for your foot, with your activities and footwear in mind during the prescription process. Orthotics can be made from a variety of materials (firm or soft). We achieve best results by providing a slim, low profile, soft and comfortable orthotic insole, meaning  you will wear them and get results faster. 

Thick, bulky and hard orthotics are rarely prescribed because they are difficult to fit in shoes and the majority of patients won’t wear them.

Prefabricated orthotics and semi-custom devices are also available. 

Your podiatrist will discuss which style and material is best for you. 

You may be able to claim some or all of the cost of your orthotics through your private health fund extras coverage. Call and ask your health fund what your coverage limits are on customized orthotics and / or prefabricated devices.

Podiatrists In Victoria Correcting Alignment With Orthotics

We are a group of podiatry practices based in Victoria that have joined together to form The Victorian Podiatry Group. This amalgamation has made it possible to provide podiatry services in and around Melbourne. Our podiatrists treat a variety of ailments linked to feet, ankles, and lower limbs. The causes of foot, ankle, or lower limb pain can be as a result of incorrect alignment of the ankle to the knee, but corrections are possible with the aid of orthotics or insoles that fit inside your shoes.

What Are Orthotic Inserts?

If you are suffering from pain in your feet, ankles, legs, or knees, it could be caused by flat feet or high foot arches that place stress on other parts of your body. Foot orthotics are devices similar to shoe insoles but are tailored to your foot type, biomechanics, and lifestyle. They can help improve walking, running, and standing. The materials we use vary depending on your problem, severity, and your lifestyle.

  • We custom make orthotics from firm or soft materials or a combination, taking your activities and footwear into consideration. We also have prefabricated and semi-customisable orthotics, but your Podiatrist will advise what will be best for you.
  • Orthotics can assist in realigning your feet and ankle bones to their neutral position, which can help alleviate pain..
  • We have found that hard, thick, and bulky orthotics are challenging to fit inside shoes leading to most people seldom wearing them or not wearing them at all, which defeats their purpose. Our orthotics are slim, comfortable, and fit most shoes affording you more opportunity to wear them and experience improvements.
