Orthotics comes from the Greek word Ορθός (ortho) meaning to “to straighten” or “align”. Orthotics is the specialised medical field concerning with accurate patient assessment of a clinical problem followed by design and manufacture of an individual orthoses or insole. The very thin externally applied device is simply inserted into shoes to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system.
Orthotics or Insoles can be mass produced and available in many pharmacies. This ‘one size fits all’ philosophy cannot address the specific clinical requirements of each individual. Waverley Foot Clinic provides a detailed biomechanical assessment using the latest digital technology where the specific problem is diagnosed and the correct custom insole prescribed in the same way that an optician would prescribe a pair of glasses.
