The first step of making custom orthotics in Maroochydore

Custom Orthotics in Maroochydore


Custom Orthotics are made by using the latest in 3D scanning techniques combined with an individualised orthotic prescription. Your podiatrist will align your bare feet to the scanner to capture the exact contours of your feet in a neutral (properly aligned) position. The scan is completed quickly and cleanly with your orthotics returning within five working days.

Ingrowing Toenails


Ingrowing toenails occur when the edge of the nail grows into the skin of the toe. This can become painful, inflamed and often infected. Conservative treatment consists of removing a small piece of nail from the edge leaving a gap for the skin to heal. In most cases, the nail will grow out straight rather than into the skin.

Callus and Corns


These can be painful lesions caused by friction and pressure. Treatment is usually 100% painless to debride this excess hyperkeratotic skin. If the callus recurs quickly, change in footwear or orthotics to redistribute the pressure may be discussed.



This is a term describing pain and inflammation at the forefoot (ball of the foot). There are many individual conditions that can be grouped together as the term ‘metatarsalgia’. Depending on the cause of the pain, treatments may include: change of footwear, simple padding in the shoe or custom orthotic devices to redistribute excess pressure.

Heel Pain


The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciopathy. This may be with or without a heel spur. Examination finds a point of tenderness in the area of the heel bone under the foot. Usually the pain is worst first standing after a period of rest. Treatment consists of reducing the load on the heel and correcting any biomechanical abnormalities with taping, footwear or orthotics. There are many other causes of heel pain including achilles tendinopathy and bursitis.

Achilles Pain (Achilles Tendinopathy)


This can be pain anywhere from the attachment to the heel bone up to the connection to the calf muscle. The term tendinopathy is now used as the issue may or may not be inflammatory. Common causes are incorrect footwear, poor training techniques, biomechanical abnormalities and poor strength. Treatments include stretching and strengthening programs, change of footwear and addressing any biomechanical abnormalities.

Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT)


FMT is a physical/manual therapy where gentle precise pressure is used to move (mobilise) bones, reduce joint restrictions, and improve bone alignment. Applying a stretch to the articular surfaces and surrounding joint soft tissue can promote repair and improve function.
