Orthotics are individually prescribed insoles for your shoes that will help support your foot and leg. They can be orthotics that are prefabricated and off the shelf or they can be a customised device made from a cast of your foot. The aim of orthotics is to help your foot into the best position and to help control movement in the foot. This support will help with pain in the foot or further up the legs or even back and shoulder pain. If we support the body into the best position, it will help movements to be painfree.
Your Chartered Physiotherapist will carry out a full assessment to your foot and look at the rest of your posture, to decide on the best orthotics for your posture and foot type. Everyone will have different needs, so we can tailor the orthoticss to what will work best for you. Your Chartered Physiotherapist may also compliment the orthotics with a tailor made exercise programme to stretch and strengthen areas that will improve your alignment that is contributing to pain.
Orthotics help in the relief of plantarfascitis, shin splints, heel pain, knee pain and back pain.
