Needing Orthotics in Albury Wodonga?
Dr Cameron Bayliss is Sports & Spinal Albury’s orthotic guru. Using his additional training in heat mouldable orthotics, Cameron can customise an orthotic to a client’s individual foot shape.
What are heat mouldable orthotics?
We use heat mouldable, customised orthotics for a range of foot, knee and hip conditions. Our ICB orthotics allow us to individualise an orthotic for the specific shape of a person’s foot. They come with different densities for all shapes and sizes, suitable for everyone from the athletes to the sedentary.
The orthotics themselves have been designed from biomechanical studies of foot and ankle motion when both standing and moving. So once moulded, the orthotic should provide adequate support for the arch of your foot as it sits in your sneaker and even your dress shoe.
What common conditions can heat moldable orthotics help with?
With professional fitted, personally designed heat moldable orthotics, correcting the motion of the foot in walking and standing may aid in providing relief to people suffering from
- Medial arch pain
- Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs
- Achilles Pain
- Metatarsalgia (pain at the ball of your toes)
- Severs Disease
- Osgood Schlatters
- Calf tightness
But also frequent lateral knee and hip pain
Dr Cameron Bayliss is our trained orthotic fitting practitioner. He will assess the way you walk and stand to see if the orthotic is necessary. Then, in combination with his knowledge of the body, will guide your foot and ankle into a position that reduces the stress on the joints of the feet, ankle, knee and hip. Once heat moulded, the orthotic can immediately be placed into the shoe, giving you your own personalised orthotic in only a matter of one consult.
What to expect in your consult?
Your initial consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment where we ascertain your relevant past history, including previous injuries and medical history, followed by a physical exam to determine not only the diagnosis but also find the root cause of your problem. This will be discussed with you and a treatment plan will be formulated to accommodate your needs.
The treatment itself will vary from individual to individual, but will often include a combination of hands on therapies, dry needling, taping, advice, exercise prescription as well as other options.
Osteopaths are covered by most Private Health insurance schemes. To be sure you are covered please consult your insurance policy. We have HICAPs facilities available for those with Private Health so you can automatically claim your treatment and only have to pay the gap.
No referral is necessary to come to our clinic.
Osteopaths like to be thorough and hence our consults tend to take half an hour on average.
It is advised that you arrive between 5 and 10 minutes prior to your initial consult as you are required to fill out a new patient and informed consent forms before treatment can commence.
