Orthotics are shoe inserts for biomechanical problems of Gait or walking. We offer a range of orthotics for those who would benefit from their use. From simple heel lifts and off-the-shelf inserts to custom-made polypropylene NHS grade orthotics manufactured from individual prescription.
Your feet are the foundation for the normal balance and alignment of your body. Structural problems in the feet, even the slightest imbalance, can alter the way that you walk and cause many different problems. Common symptoms of problems with gait are localised foot pain, knee pain, plantar faciitis, bunions, hammer toes, pain in the arch of the foot and even low back pain and hip pain.
Faulty foot mechanics can alter the even distribution of your body weight, whilst standing, walking or running, and create an increased load on joints and muscles elsewhere in the body.
Foot orthotics help to correct any imbalance by stabilising the bones of your feet and bring other bones and joints back into proper alignment.
