Better Balance Orthotics is owned and run by Australian Chiropractor, Dr Andrew Powell and his wife, Jodie Powell.
Andrew has a chiropractic clinic, Hills Spinal Health, in Castle Hill where he has practiced since 2003.
Better Balance Orthotics are manufactured in Sydney, Australia and our materials come from Australian suppliers.
Founded by Dr Edward Butterworth as Healthmarque PZ Orthotics
Our orthotics were originally developed by Dr. Edward Butterworth, a medical doctor who was looking for a solution to support his daughter with serious scoliosis. He quickly realised that the orthotics had a wide range of applications in supporting many different postural or functional conditions, and so worked hard to ensure more people could access his orthotics, training health practitioners to fit them across the Australia and abroad.
Dr. Butterworth sadly passed away in 2020. It is our hope to continue his legacy by bringing these unique orthotics to the many people whose lives could be improved by wearing them.
“Heartfelt thanks to the Better Balance Orthotics team. Our son was experiencing foot, leg and neck pain daily. It was so bad that he couldn’t even participate in little athletics, which he loves. After receiving his pair of Better Balance Orthotics his pain was dramatically reduced and he was immediately able to go back to running. He even got a bunch of ‘personal bests’ the very next week. Our son happily wears his orthotics without complaints.”
