recover-audio-fileAS A PODIATRIST WITH CLOSE TO 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD I WANT TO OFFER A DO IT YOURSELF OPTION FOR PATIENTS WHO CANNOT AFFORD THE CURRENT COST OF ORTHOTICS,  IT MAY EVEN SUIT PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN REMOTE LOCATIONS WITHOUT ACCESS TO PODIATRISTS.  I OFFER THIS IN FRUSTRATION AS I HAVE WITNESSED PATIENTS VISITING NON PODIATRISTS WHO HAVE PRESCRIBED AN UNSATISFACTORY SO CALLED CUSTOM ORTHOTIC WHICH WAS MERELY AN OFF  THE SHELF MASS PRODUCED PRODUCT.  THE DO IT YOURSELF OPTION I OFFER IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO ELIMINATE THIS INACCURACY. CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE MANUFACTURED BY IMPRESSION MOULDS OF OUR FEET,  OFF SHELF ORTHOTICS ARE PRODUCED BY A MASS PRODUCED LAST, WHICH IS A MASS PRODUCED FOOT SHAPE ACCORDING TO FOOT SIZE ONLY. WE ALL HAVE OUR UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL ARCH SHAPES EVEN WITHIN THE INDIVIDUAL THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE LEFT AND RIGHT FOOT, “YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE WEARING SOMEONE ELSE’S ORTHOTICS”! PATIENTS WILL ACHIEVE A CUSTOM REPLICAR OF THEIR FEET VIA THIS DO IT YOURSELF METHOD.

“I WANT TO EMPHASISE CLEARLY THAT MY SINCERE ADVICE IS TO VISIT YOUR PODIATRIST OR DOCTOR AND HAVE THE APPROPRIATE INVESTIGATION DONE TO ESTABLISH A DIAGNOSIS IN RELATION TO YOUR FOOT AND LEG PAIN”

THE DO IT YOURSELF OPTION IS THE NEXT BEST ALTERNATIVE TO VISITING THE PODIATRIST RATHER THAN CONSULTING ALTERNATIVE PRACTICIONERS TO ACHIEVE MASS PRODUCED INSERTS.  IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING AS A PRACTICIONER OF MANY YEARS TO COME ACROSS PATIENTS WHO INITIALLY CONSULTED NON PODIATRISTS FOR FOOT PAIN.  “IF YOU HAVE A TOOTH ACHE YOU VISIT A DENTIST! IF YOU HAVE FOOT PAIN I ADVOCATE YOU VISIT A PODIATRIST!”
