Orthotics Brian James Tracey

What are Orthotics?

  • Are mush more than "arch supports"
  • Prescription orthotics are a non-invasive (i.e. No surgery or anti-inflammatory injections), effective, comfortable, practical and long lasting solution to the majority of foot problems
  • Custom made medical devices
  • Reform the structure of the foot
  • Appropriately control the intricate movements of the 26 bones of each foot
  • Correcting an individualís foot problem, and also sets a proper structurally aligned biomechanical 'foundation' for the knees, hips, spine and posture
  • Brians' Orthotics are being worn by over 20,000 people, from numerous European and AsianTour PGA golfers, to the top of Mount Everest!!

How Orthotics work

  • As your foot rests on the orthotic, it is gently and consistently directed into the correct position for running and walking. Medical-grade Orthotics are essentially an Orthopaedic brace restoring podiatric (foot) and direct secondary biomechanically related mal-alignments by restructuring the complex 'architecture' of the foots' alignment and structure.
  • It modifies the function of your foot as you continue to wear them.

How long will I have to wear them?

  • Prescription orthotics work on the same principle as eyeglasses
    Both adjust bodily imperfections that inhibit people from functioning at their maximum physical potential
  • In many young patients, the early use of prescription orthotics before the bones are fully developed, may actually permanently correct a foot problem

 

How are Orthotics made?

You must be fitted for them

• Your foot specialist will:
  • Give you a complete foot and biomechanical / orthopaedic examination, takes a history of your foot complaint/s
  • Determine your particular foot problem
  • Takes a pediograph, a (dynamic weight bearing impression) and a neutral casting

Note: Prescription orthotics must be prescribed and made by a fully qualified medical specialist (orthopaedic specialist/ podiatrist or specially trained physiotherapist) as they must be very accurately made for an individuals’ unique foot structure and problem
