Why Do I Need An Orthotics Sydney Fitting?
Traditionally, custom foot orthotics have been manufactured from form-moulded plastic (polypropylene) or milled plastic/foam. Today, we rely on advanced 3D printed foot orthotics which are far more superior. Our 3D printed orthotics are designed to meet the unique requirements of your feet, are lighter, environmentally friendly, longer lasting and have a faster rebound ratee than polypropylene.
What Are Cycling Specific Carbon Orthotics?
Cycling specific carbon orthotics are customised insoles designed to improve the comfort of feet while riding. The carbon fibre insoles are evidence-based designs that provide maximised performance and comfort for cycling specific shoes. Our custom-designed cycling specific orthotics aim to prevent cycling overuse injuries and increase output power while cycling.
We offer custom made orthotics Sydney cyclists love. Pinnacle Sports Podiatry have extensive expertise in creating custom made orthotics Sydney for cycling shoes and cycling specific carbon orthotics in Sydney. Working to provide cyclists with a stable platform within their shoe, our custom orthotics for cycling shoes provide maximum power transfer to the pedal interface; enhancing rider performance and comfort.
The Benefits of Custom Made Orthotics for Cycling Shoes
Our custom orthotics for cycling shoes are specialised carbon insoles that are created specifically for cycling shoes. The Pinnacle tailored approach to customised cycling orthotics offers a number of benefits, including:
- Increased power
- Relief of plantar fascial tension
- Enhanced foot comfort
- Support of all three arches of the foot
- Force Distribution
- Alleviate forefoot pain, burning and numbness
- Helps with crank rub and knee positioning
- Maximises overall cycling performance
The custom design of each set of orthotics also means that the insoles are aligned with the exact characteristics of each foot and will match the cycling shoes to increase overall contact area and enhance stability. The biomechanics of cycling varies enormously to running and general walking; requiring the need for vastly unique orthotic inserts for cycling shoes.
How Can I Benefit from Custom Made Orthotics Sydney Services?
You may benefit from customised orthotics if you are suffering from lower limb injury, discomfort and pain. Our customised foot orthotics and insoles are typically prescribed to treat and provide relief from plantar fasciitis, bursitis and arthritis. Sports orthotics can alleviate lower limb pain, provide alignment treatment and allow you to get back on your feet and back to the sports that you love.
The Pinnacle Sports Podiatry services can improve your mobility and independence through means of prevention and treatment of foot problems with orthotic fittings. Specialising in running-related injuries, Pinnacle’s breadth of service capability extends from orthotic fittings and sports podiatry to general podiatry. Not only will we provide effective pain relief, treatment and chronic injury management, but we also provide exceptional preventative practices to keep future problems at bay.
