Just as people eyes differ, your feet vary in size, shape and function. A Podiatrist will examine the underlying biomechanical changes that may have contributed to your symptoms and if required prescribe functionally prescriptive shoe inserts or orthotics. These may be from a plaster cast impression of your feet, a laboratory will manufacture these devices from a prescription, similar to a set of dentures, or from a range of over the counter specific orthotics to suit your needs.
Orthotics will realign your feet and ankles and help in both correcting and controlling body posture to reduce your symptoms.
They are designed to help and give relief to the following complaints:
- Heel pain e.g Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendonopathy
- Mortons Neuroma
- Flat feet
- Knee pain
- Low back pain
