How we help
At the Adelaide Health Clinic, we are proud to use Orthogenic orthotics. The unfortunate – but prevalent – misconception about orthotics is that they’re all made the same. Unlike many of the orthotic companies in North America, Orthogenic is one of the few that manufacture a full arch contact orthotic. The full arch contact orthotics are more difficult to make because they must be strong enough to actually change the way a foot works and be comfortable at the same time.
Most custom orthotic companies use wedges to control foot function and keep the arches to a minimum, thus reducing discomfort. However, the optimal effectiveness of the orthotic to prevent arch collapse is severely compromised due to the lack of a full and dynamic arch support. Unfortunately, these types of orthotics end up being just a very expensive shoe insert.
