Nicole CommerfordI recently used the Podiatry service at Physio Active to replace my innersoles and I'm very happy with the result. I was a bit skeptical at first about the process which involves meeting with a Podiatrist in Singapore via zoom and then having the custom innersoles made in Australia. But I'm very happy with the product I received. The innersoles fit a little differently to my last pair but they are comfortable and I'm happy to wear them all the time. I highly recommend the Podiatry service at Physio Active. It's professional, thorough and efficient. https://goo.gl/maps/UcCS36SNZ7p8BcrVA
Podiatry: Biomechanical Assessment
Biomechanics is the study of the movement of the body and how the muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons work together to produce movement. If you have pain in the lower half of the body (back, hips, knees, legs, feet) that may be related to the foot function. It is worth having a biomechanical examination by the podiatrist to assess if orthotics may help relieve some of the pain and symptoms. Our physiotherapists work very closely with podiatrists and look at the function of the body not just at the individual problem. Custom-made orthotics can be tailored to the individual’s foot type.
The custom-made orthotics are manufactured in Australia and use the latest digital techniques. We can make orthotics that can fit into a wide variety of shoes including certain types of sandals. Your orthotic records are stored digitally at the lab so subsequent pairs can be ordered at any time.
