Orthotic Assessment and Fitting in Dooradoyle, Limerick

The Physio Company is delighted to announce the opening of our Orthotic Service in our Limerick Clinic in Dooradoyle.

What is an Orthotic?

Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently. Poor foot function such as fallen arches, hammer toe and bunions can be the cause of various pains such as foot and heel pain, ankle pain, shin pain, knee pain or hip pain and low back/pelvic pain.

Orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as a simple insole and work on your feet much the same way glasses work on your eyes- by taking some of the stress and strain off. We provide a wide range of orthotics from basic temporary models to our custom made permanent range in association with, The Orthotic Group, which have a lifetime guarantee against breakage. These custom orthotics can be tailored to fit many shoe types such as:

 Gait Scan for Orthotic Assessment

The process is simple. In 30 minutes, we will thoroughly assess your feet and footwear and analyse the way you stand and walk with our state of the art Gaitscan. This creates a 3D model of your foot as it moves and ensures an very accurate and comfortable orthotic.
