Your Orthotics

Your Podiatrist may suggest an orthotic to treat your foot or ankle concern. Before your orthotics can be manufactured we will first need to perform a biomechanical assessment of your lower limbs. This is important to ensure that your orthotic prescription is accurate. This assessment will investigate your flexibility, muscle strength, posture and walking patterns.

Next a cast of your foot will be taken of your foot. This is done to ensure that your orthotic device is custom made uniquely to your foot characteristics.

Imprint Podiatry uses the best quality materials to ensure your orthotics have both durability and longevity. Our orthotics are manufactured using foot scanning and milling technology and are made specifically for your feet to ensure you obtain a suitable amount of support and comfort.  They need to be firm enough so they are supportive and alter your foot mechanics, yet flexible and soft so they help absorb shock and are comfortable.

Soft Tissue Treatment

All foot and ankle conditions are treated differently and most patient’s we see will benefit from more than one treatment modality. Every individual is different in their personal needs regarding rehabilitation and return to leisure and work activities.

Imprint Podiatry Gold Coast provides a wide variety of treatment options including:

Soft-Tissue-Treatment

Shockwave Treatment

Are you suffering from tendon pain? 

Shockwave therapy applies high energy acoustic waves directly to the painful areas to aid in tissue repair and cell growth. Shockwave has the ability to provide a short-term analgesic affect and restore mobility to the affected muscles and joints. Shockwave can be a useful treatment in a range of musculoskeletal conditions.

Common conditions that benefit from our shockwave treatment include Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs, Arch Pain, Achilles Tendinopathy, Patella Tendinopathy, Shin Splints and Hamstring Tendon problems.

Digital Gait Analysis

Your Podiatrist may want to assess your gait patterns during your consultation. Typically, following a biomechanical exam of the lower limbs, your podiatrist will use a digital video camera or tablet to record you walking or running. This may provide important information as to the cause and treatment of your complaint. This can be performed either outdoors, on a treadmill or sometimes indoors using a long corridor.  

There are pros and cons of using any of these techniques, and your podiatrist may have a preference for one method over another. 

You can also specifically request a digital gait analysis if you are a keen runner. Your Podiatrist will carefully analyse your running technique and make recommendations to optimise your performance.
