Orthoses or Orthotics are inserts that fit inside your shoes. They are usually used to give the foot or the arch some additional support. They can also be used to help relieve problems such as knee, hip and back ache. They can help to resolve recurring sports injuries and in children they can help with structural and postural developmental problems.
Our orthotics range from simple off the shelf devices, to custom made prescription orthotics issued by our podiatrists in clinic. Prescription orthotics are made to fit your individual feet providing you with the greatest health benefits from wearing orthotic insoles.
At Shuropody we offer a custom orthotics service which involves the following:
- Thorough biomechanical assessment which involves understanding your symptoms; from where you feel pain, to analysis of your foot posture, gait, and any excessive pronation ( flat feet).
- Orthotics custom made to fit your feet.
