Custom Moulded Orthotics
full assessment & fitting
Orthoses are specialised inserts for your shoes or trainers that help support the biomechanics of your foot. Orthotics support the natural arches of your feet and preventing possible collapse.
Orthotics can also be angled at the heel to help with ankle instability or they can be raised at the heel to counteract leg length discrepancy.
Problems Orthotics can help with:
- Flat Feet
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Hammer Toe
- Foot Pain
- Heel Pain
- Knee Pain
- Back Pain
- Pelvic Alignment
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Shin Splints
Types of Orthotics
- Sports orthotics
- Soft density orthotics for people with Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis or people requiring mild support
- Firm density orthotics for severe over-pronation requiring enhanced support
- 3/4 or full length orthotics
- Different shapes to suit various shoe types e.g. shoes, high heels, football boots, trainers, work boots.
Physical Assessment & FITTING
The physical assessment is important in identifying your gait, foot position and any biomechanical issues.
You will have a thorough physiotherapy assessment including assessment of any specific injuries relating to your foot problem or gait.
We will measure the joint angles of your feet and ankles and mark the optimal foot position which will allow us to identify the correct orthotic for you. Following your initial assessment you will then return for the fitting which involves heat moulding the orthotic to your feet in order to keep you comfortably supported.
Running & Orthotics
As running becomes increasingly popular, runners are encouraged to consider the tools of their trade; their feet! Adequate and appropriate support for your feet is essential for the occasional runner, the amateur and the professional athlete.
Foot placement on contact, through contact and on push off during your stride has a significant effect on the rest of your body and something very minor in the way your foot hits the floor can have consequences up through your leg, back and neck.
