About Orthotics

Biomechanical issues are a very common, and often missed, cause of gradual onset pain in all age groups, including children. We will consider how you walk, assess your foot type, lower limb strength and flexibility, range of motion and overall alignment as you move.

If we find anything on assessment that may be contributing to your injury, we will always discuss the options with you for exercise versus prescription insoles versus custom made orthotics.

Prescription insoles and custom-made orthotics are orthopaedic devices placed into your shoes to improve alignment, control excessive movement of the ankle or knee joints, alter arch height if needed, or improve the distribution of your body weight through the joints and soft tissues of your lower limbs and feet. 

 

Types of Orthotics

There are many different types of temporary prescription available and these can be ordered as a stand-alone solution, or to test how suitable you are for custom made orthotics. 

In many cases, the temporary insoles may be enough to alleviate your symptoms and you may not need to get a custom-made device at all.

Please note that orthotics do not permanently correct any structural abnormalities, much like a pair of glasses only makes your vision clear when they are on your face.

If you think you may need orthotics or insoles, please call us and we can discuss the best options with you.
