Orthotics can help with many foot, ankle or lower leg symptoms such as:
Orthotics are specialist shoe inserts which help to re-align the foot posture and reduce abnormal tissue stress on the feet and lower limbs.
Before Custom/Bespoke Orthotics can be manufactured a thorough foot and posture and gait analysis must be completed and a cast of your feet must be taken. This is an extremely skilled process requiring years of experience and expertise.
Casting of the feet involves the Podiatrist holding the foot in a specific ‘neutral position’ relative to the lower-limb whilst taking the impressions of your feet.
The casts are then 3D digitally analysed to help reduce tissue stress, re-distribute plantar foot pressures and correct any functional abnormalities found during the biomechanical examination.
Custom/ Bespoke orthotics are returned to the clinic and fitted within 2-5 weeks. Orthotics can improve posture, reduce injury and allows you to lead a healthier lifestyle. You will be reviewed again between 2-6 weeks after use.
