Healthy feet, healthy mind, body & sole

 The human foot is an amazingly strong structure, capable of handling hundreds of tons of force every day. The foot's myriad of parts work in harmony, getting you from one place to another, but the stress of carrying you around puts your feet at high risk of injury, more so than other parts of your body

Our list of Common Foot Problems helps highlight issues, but our expert staff and podiatrists are here to help and assist you in all aspects of your foot health

Plantar Fasciitis

 Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot pain, especially in the heel and arch. The plantar fascia is a flat band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes, supporting the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen & inflamed

Our Custom Insoles help with plantar fasciitis by providing strength and support to the arch. By holding the foot in its optimal position, the insoles help stabilise the arch to allow healing & recovery of the plantar fascia ligament

FootBalance Custom Insoles will support a high arch, ensuring the foot is properly aligned, providing cushioning and shock-absorption to ensure your feet stay healthy and active
