Introducing Telehealth

In light of recent events surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, some of you may be choosing to self-isolate or are quarantined. However, this does not mean there has to be a disturbance or a delay to the care you have been receiving at The Foot Alignment Clinics. It just means we have to think outside the box and get creative with how we deliver services to you to ensure your health is still a number one priority! We can even come to your home if molding or general treatments need to be done, please call us to find out suburbs that we can cover.

Why use the Foot Alignment Clinic?

We treat all pain and symptoms caused from poor foot posture.

At the FAC, molding and alignment of your feet occur simultaneously, so it matches your corrected foot shape perfectly.

This corrected position is unique to “your” feet and it’s why we align them as you stand, so your feet sit “IN” the orthotic, not “ON IT”.
This sounds logical to most people, but it’s not!

To make an Orthotic, a mold is taken of your feet in various ways. ALL of these molds are MODIFIED to represent, what your foot looks like, in a
Corrected Weight Bearing position.

Vertical Foot Alignment System

Angles, shapes and measurements are used on a Prescription form to re-shape the molds of your feet to offload the damaging forces that cause you pain and create a shape that changes the position of your foot.

How high, and what is the natural arch shape? What length and width? Are there any bony protrusions or deflections needed? How much force and what angles are needed and where, to change the position of the foot?

If you get the shape wrong, the Orthotics will feel uncomfortable and you won’t wear them, so we test the comfort and alignment of each orthotic
before you leave.

We are so confident in how we do it, we guarantee every orthotic! So you’ve got nothing to lose but the pain you’re in.

We offer a range of services unique to The Foot Alignment Clinic. Patented technology, experienced skills and trained staff.
