Foot orthosis are shoe inserts designed to support the natural shape of the foot, align the ankle and improve posture and foot function in general. Commonly referred to as “orthotics”, they are most effective when designed for each person’s individual foot contours and biomechanics.

At Riverton Podiatry, we supply custom foot orthotics.  Our podiatrists record the exact contours of your foot whilst it is being held in its corrected standing position by your experienced Riverton podiatrist. 

How do custom foot orthotics help?

Custom foot orthotics are prescribed to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain, and improve your balance and foot function in general.
